4 stars Basically, this is 61 minutes long show of drunken like freaks that shouts, produces various noises and are having a lot of fun (apparently). However, when we look behind this charade, we can see narration line, uniting element that holds this album together.

That they are crazy you can see from Lineup/Musicians section, instrument like fancy: dancing pig, screwdriver, walking and talking and as far as I hear, lyrics are typical Zapaesque weird stuff.

Musically we got one of the most eclectic mixes that I ever heard. Heavy Metal, Prog Metal, flute, circus sounds, ambient parts, rattling, psychedelic noises, country and dozens of others. After all, this music is based on doing as much "things" as possible.

Actually it's quite pleasant to listen, at least half of this album is harmonic and melodic (even often using weird melody, still it is melody), but you won't be denied dissonant parts too, thrown together like cats into the pit with one purpose. To fight and see which one will survive. This music is the same case - different musical influences are struggling for attention and which one will be dominant one.

Result is unclear, same as this album.

4(+), but I suppose it is better this way.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
