2 stars Primus Les Claypool's side project with one-time Guns N'Roses guitarist Buckethead, drummer Brain (from the same Primus) and P-Funk keyboardist Bernie Worrell. Strange album.

If you want to imagine what the music is presented there, just think about Zappa's atmosphere, transferred to modern time, filled with endless guitar solos, metal-funk and indie-rock of Primus, crazy jams and social edged hip-hop vocals. Music is complex ( but it often looks as complexity in the name of complexity) and chaotic. Some separate moments are interesting, but in whole all this mixture sounds as punk-funk-indie-jamming-chaotic-twisted-revolution.

I can try hard and understand this music, but I will hardly like it. Something on the very border zone of progressive music ( and I like Zorn's Naked City , so it is not my conservative taste). Album for avant-prog lovers who are bored by regular avant till death ( or Madness ex-fans with present love to hardcore).

Still 2,5.
