Attention Defecit have a number of things going for them, not the least of which is, as with all supergroups, top-flight musicians. And these guys have outrageously wide roots. Michael Manring spent a number of years as a mainstay on the Windham Hill label. Alex Skolnick, a speedmetal horn thrower (before his latest Jazz works). And Tim Alexander, the Neil Peart-esque battering ram of Primus. All the elements were there for a prog nuke. But the trio decided to take an open ended approach to the compositions on their debut. While there is an organized root to most of the songs, it can be described as modern jazz improv. It is a worthy effort for this style, but generally not my cup of tea.
