3 stars Another good album from JLP. I find this release more heavy sounding than say Civilized Evil released a year later but nevertheless it holds up very well in the Jazz/Rock/Fusion genre. The album maintains the basic theme throughout and at times the electric violin from JLP is simply awesome. The title track opener is a great song as is ' The Art Of Happiness', ' Fakes Paradise' and ' Egocentric Molecules' the closing track. The album is full of complex arrangements which makes for repeated listening to fully appreciate the wealth of sound it provides.
