4 stars Quite eccentric & nice cover, isn't it ? Maybe it tells something about band's music itself, or at least certain parts of it. Because Stone Salad is first more rock, than jazz, while towards the end of track, it grows into first jamming outro, then ascending (or descending) into dissonant, before finally reuniting with more melodic rock. Their style is quite unique, which is probably because of country of their origin. Same as with previously reviewed "The Gourishankar", these post-soviet bands have something magical inside them. Maybe it's because these features (hidden ones, more clear to see ones, influences, styles of composing etc) are unique. As from country on border between Eastern and Western Europe (we're in fact Central Europe, but nobody is paying attention), there's still quite big disregard for soviet (I mean propaganda free) / post-soviet one, which I think is unfair. On the contrary, these territories are uncharted land, hungry for explorers.

4(+), full of "new" things.
