Review by Prog-jester

THE FROMUZ is an Uzbekistan heavy fusion band, standing rather closer to LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT then BRAND X or maybe WEATHER REPORT. I ain't familiar much with the genre, but sometimes I like jazzy influence in the music I listen to. THE FROMUZ is definetely my kind of music - they play complex stuff but never lose melodic lines and sometimes even go riffing! All musicians are skilled and professional (known from their own projects, like Badirov's solo and another great Uzbekistan band, X-RELIGION). The concert could have been a bit boring if I'd listen to it, but I watched it as a DVD and it killed me !!! Extremely recommended! What a shame these guys can't play huge fests and concerts in Uzbekistan and on post-USSR area, they definetely deserve to be heard and seen by a larger audience!
