Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Next in row Altered States album after their great "Estonia And Lithuania Live" is Japanese noise/brutal version of math-rock. Or Japanese avant with math rock elements.

Mostly instrumental, almost fully improv based release with some guests on board. Music is more diverse, than usual (mostly because of guest I think), very interesting Ned Rothenberg's sax on Dan-go.

In all - extremely energetic,fast and technical fusion of noise,Frippian guitar (on steroids), ecstatic rhythm section and some shamanic screams. Highest technical level of musicianship you can imagine, not too much attention to musical component (as usual).

Great album for Japanese brutal avant prog lovers, less prepared listener could be attracted by excellent musicianship techniques, but disappointed by lack of attention to musical element though.
