Review by Sean Trane
3 stars 3,5 stars really!!!

Forever Einstein is one of the most original bands on the Cuneiform roster, but also one of the more impenetrable, but if I was to recommend the newbie an album of theirs, this might be the one. One of the more accessible and happier moods, but Forever Einstein always appear humorous especially with their silly track titles (my fave on this album must be The Girl With The Maple Chest and Walnut Drawers, lol), and the least we can say is that these guys do not seem to take themselves as seriously as one might fear from listening to their music.

Yes, these guys develop a sort of Avant-prog close to RIO, but it is laced in with so many outside influences that it never gets tedious and actually does not leave you a moment of peace or rest if you care enough to get interested in their music. Among my favourite tracks are Maniacs From The Fourth dimension and Curly, Get The Ladder (I was a bit disappointed not to find a mention of Larry and Moe in other tracks), the former being frankly jazzy with Vrtacek virtually flawless on his Telecaster (not exactly my idea of a reference prog electric guitar but nonetheless.), but one of the real feat of this album is undoubtedly on how they manage to sound so different and develop so many moods with just the basic guitar-bass-drum trio.

Easily their better album, IMHO!
