4 stars This album follows the sound Kit Watkins devoloped on "Wet Dark And Low". The songs here, and there are a lot of them, have lots of rhythm in them. And, like most of Watkins' previous work, plenty of odd time signatures as well.

Like the previous album, Watkins uses a harmonized trumpet sound on a few track. This along with the treibal rhythms, sounds quite a bit like some of Jon Hassell's works. But that's only a few of the songs here. The real joy here come in the synth sounds Watkins uses. While not sounding strange, each synth patch seems perfect for the music he's written.

The songs are not terribly complex. Watkins lays down the main tracks, and instead of soloing, he has other short synth sound dance in and out around the music. It's very nice, and often mesmerizing.

Evolver | 4/5 |
