5 stars I can't believe anything like this came out of 2012! This Boston trio of bassist Jim Harney, guitarist Sean McDermitt, and drummer Don Taylor (and some outside help too) recorded this truly mindbending work called Volume One, which clocks around 40 minutes. This is some truly intense playing and jamming, these guys made it seem so effortless, but in reality extremely difficult to pull this off (this was the same reaction I got from the title track of Colosseum's Valentyne Suite, the intense passages were very difficult to pull off, but the band made it seem so effortless). At times the music features rather distorted guitar, other times, more jazzy, other times more in the space rock vein. These guys rarely give a rest, but there are some calmer passages. Check out the drumming too. I can't believe what I was hearing. Perhaps the finest new recordings from a new band I have ever heard! I acquired a cassette (and a download) of this from the band's website (as I don't let old technology go, as I continue to own cassettes and LPs along with CDs, just as I do VHS along with DVDs and Blu-Rays). This group deserves to be on a label, so their material can be available on CD. Amazing stuff you need to hear!
