4 stars It is always a surprise on sporadic listens of Project: Activation Earth just how good a record it is. This tremendous group of Buffalonian instrumentalists rips its way through an exciting and super-tight string of self-composed wonders. Gamalon first released it as an LP, but the CD is especially good for highly accelerated highway driving.

Gamalon's incredible debut shows a rare combining of their patented and very recognizable guitar-driven sound with some wild sax soloing by Eddie Watts. There are no weak tunes on Project: Activation Earth and a few are real barnburners that really get the blood flowing. Things roll along like a thunderstorm, complete with occasional breaks in the weather.

The musicians must have worked very earnestly to create such a cool united sound so early in the bands existence. Every tune stands on its own, and there is little repetition in the licks or the hooks in the melodies. There is a very nice flow to the way the songs unfold, so it is suggested that it be experienced straight through.

Gamalon grows and grows with each succeeding year and album: it is a true diamond in a rough corner of New York State.
