4 stars Why didn't anyone ever tell me how good the older Jaga Jazzist albums were? When you read something like, "The BBC named it the best jazz album of 2002," you want to check it out.

1. "Animal Chin" (4:07) (8.75/10) 2. "Going Down" (5:20) My favorite song on the album. (10/10) 3. "Press Play" (1:16) (5/5) 4. "Airborne" (5:13) KOOP with orchestration. (8.75/10) 5. "Real Racecars Have Doors" (4:15) (8.5/10) 6. "Low Battery" (5:50) (8.5/10) 7. "Midget" (2:32) (4.25/5) 8. "Made for Radio" (5:22) (8.5/10) 9. "Lithuania" (8:38) A top three song for me. (17.75/20) 10. "Cinematic" (6:22) totally experimental glitch editing la Ryuichi Sakamoto, Carsten Nicolai, Christian Fennesz. Great if what you're wanting for your jazz takes place in the editing/production room and can't be replicated in a live setting (without computers). (8.25/10)

Total Time 48:55

Employing glitch technology is clever (it had to happen sometime, right?) but it's not, IMHO, the answer that jazz was needing.

B+/4.5 stars; a near-masterpiece of Jazz-Rock Fusion coming from the NuJazz sub-sub.
