Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Live release of Nordic avant prog trio is very energetic one. Even if the heart of the trio is Finnish guitarist Raoul Bjarkenheim with his fast,scratching and very technical guitar work, Norwegian respectable drummer Paal Nilssen-Love has more than enough space for his drumming improvs. Norwegian bassist/multi instrumentalist Ingebrigt Hayker Flaten (he played with Bugge Wesseltoft, Ken Vandenmark and McPhee) uses plenty of electronic sounds there, but in all album's atmosphere is quite airy and minimalistic.

This album is live recording, but there are not big audience and you will feel this "live" effect mostly because sound is very raw, with no overdubbing or studio tricks. Music recorded is quite characteristic for trio (and all the generation of modern avant rock improvs bands) free form quite noisy and angular rock compositions, borrowed free jazz atmosphere and some techniques, but seriously based on rock tradition itself. Musicians all are really very competent, and they really enjoy what they are playing there. Quality album for prepared fans of avant prog improvisational music.

My rating is 3,5 rounded to 4.
