2 stars I'm not sure where I got this 2014 release from, but I'm going to blame Olav, as he appears to be the logical source. I can't find anything in my emails or PA messages, but I did grab a whole load of albums from him to review so it was probably included in that group, which is a shame. I always prefer my music to be played by musicians, which is one of the reasons why I have so many issues with modern pop music and the use of studio trickery to get vocals on pitch, so to come across an album where it is electronic, poppy, with a few hints of jazz here and there, then I must confess that it really isn't the sort of thing I really want to listen to. John Crispino managed to get the likes of Trey Gunn and Tim Bogert to collaborate on the debut, but for one reason or another they're not on the follow-up. When the album is good, such as on sections of the Floydian "Hey Dad", then it is very good indeed. Unfortunately, those instances are very few and far between, and I soon found that I was checking the track listing to see how much I had to suffer before I could honestly say that I had listened to the whole album at least once. There has recently been a third release, but if it is anything like the second then it isn't something I will be searching out in a hurry.
