2 stars I've had this one for a while and I wish I could remember who recommended this to me so I could properly re-pay them(haha). No this is one album that I hope to never hear again. I really don't like the name of the band either. In the bio here they mention EAST OF EDEN as a reference point with the strings, horns and eclectic style but man this just doesn't compare to what EAST OF EDEN composed, especially their early albums. The music of GUNS AND BUTTER reminds me mostly of Proto-Prog even though it was released in 1972 and I think the vocalist has a lot to do with that. I do enjoy the flute a lot, the violin not so much despite Lenny Federer being classically trained. Richard Ploss the flute/ sax player was trained at Berklee so yes these guys can play, I just don't enjoy the music at all.

Sorry to not be showing much love on this Valentines Day but there's little to attract me here.
