4 stars Wow, where did this band come from. Deffinatly a welcomed surprise. They started as a Zappa cover band, and it really shows though out the album. The album features many different instraments, but prodominatly violin, guitar, and trumpet. Also, all the musicains sound very talented (and i think you would have to be to be albe to cover Zappa).

Now for the music. It starts out with a nice folky piece. Violin is heavy here. A great opener. One of my favorites on the album. The next song, Old Souls, is a nice song, but nothing to special. Then comes the Candy Korn "suite". A showcase for the trumpet. Although the guitar and violin make there presents known. Another great songs. Again, this shows some Zappaesque moments. Next comes the very jazzy While You Were Sleeping. Being a fan of jazz, i love this song. This is deffinatly more jazz than prog, but it still a wonderful song. Unfortunatly they lose this element in their next album. But thats for another time. Anyway, next comes, Old Man. More great playing from this highly skilled band. Space Dust is another nice little tune, but again nothing overly special. Fianlly the album ends with the great Questions Without Answers. This one is very Zappa referenced (they even used a exerpt from Zappa'a Inca Roads). This song is one of the best on the album, IMO.

All in all this is a fantastic album. Any fan of jazz, fusion, Zappa, or just great music should check this one out. You will not be disappointed. Highly Recommended!!
