1 stars The title is a little confusing; the production got better and Meek doesn't interject herself that much into the music as she did on the debut. But CHANGES is essentially the same brand of fusion that Catapilla ate up on the debut, this time with the overall song lengths shortened.

Trouble is, CHANGES is more difficult to stomach than the debut. It's as if Catapilla morphed into a half-cocoon and just froze there. This album has the most ''in-one-ear-out-the-other'' moments than any other I can recall; I found little more than a murky fusion swamp. Occasionally, I'll find an interesting idea in the middle of bouts of extreme yawning.

I enjoy jazz fusion and psychedelic stuff, but this particular fusion never did anything for me. It seems counterintuitive for me to be repelled by this especially since I like bands such as Nucleus and Chicago. If you want tuneful yet ever-morphing fusion, the two bands I just mentioned are perfect to get into. On the whole, this album is not very interesting to listen to nor is it great background noise.

Sinusoid | 1/5 |
