3 stars The musical exploration of Elephant9, despite apparently being framed in jazz/rock fusion, is focused more on the textures, colors and diverse sounds -mostly psychedelic- that result from amalgamating the different keyboards, and not so much on the construction of melodies, improvisations (although there are some solos, they are sporadic and simple) or interactions of the instruments as usual in the genre, resulting in a work without much appeal where the other instruments (bass and drums) rarely stand out - they even give the impression of having been played on some midi instrument, thus frustrating any expectation of musical emotion. Perhaps as background music it has some interest.
