Prog Reviewer
4 stars I already did a very short review on The Plot thins compilation which by the way contains two songs of this debut by Brand X. But as I stated there: I'm not an expert on jazz rock/fusion even though I like jazz music in general and that is mainly because of the atmosphere it creates.

So I will be reviewing this as an outsider. What strikes me mainly with this album is the high speed execution on several tracks of this album. Especially the high class opening track Nuclear Burn but also Euthanasia Waltz stand out on this feature. The rest (maybe except Running of three) is more like the stream track on this site Why should I lend you mine, the song that made me familiar with this band. And that means with more progressive elements and less mainstream jazz.

All in all, as an outsider I can hear sheer class when I play this. And even though it's not 100 % living up to my personal taste (I'm more a fan of Shakatak's or Steely Dan's style of jazz) I will still give it 4* (3,75).
