5 stars Another great album from Norway's great jazz parodists. The particular satiric edge they are most known for, especially on the truly masterful "Surfin' USSR", is mostly gone, but they still have the energy and the open mindedness that are their other hallmarks. So in some ways not as good, or at least as humourous, as their earlier material, but otherwise still excellent. They here add some particularly Asiatic sounds to their usual mix of fusion and Slavic folk to great effect. Their powerful, flawless playing allows for the sound to make their usual entertaining romp through the varied genres they indulge in. The title track and "Shiny Happy Gizmos" are the best tracks amongst a spectacular bunch. Recommended to fans of their earlier work, and anyone interested in crazed genre mixes.
