4 stars Certainly not your typical jazz album, am I right dear readers ? We're talking about King Crimson inspired (for sure,he has to be, being with them for so long). Every song setting its own mood, some optimistic, some dark (I like it this way) and some bizarre (well, obvious choice would be Bizarre Bazaar, strange, but funny play with words) ones. This isn't by far bad album, even it's set into dark 80's (they are finally almost over and also I was born, let's celebrate and dance in the streets), even melancholic ones (closing Basking In the Blue). I'm slowly getting used to his music, which is weird (provides some maniacal laugh), but interesting. Drums sometimes sounds like drum-machine (big, sad face from me), but lack of vocals doesn't mean anything bad, let's stay instrumental for The Greater Good. For the big Enjoy.

4(-), sometimes minimalistic (I'm starting to like this word too), but managing to be interesting enough to get your attention.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
