4 stars Wow! This a real acid trip! When I finally get this album I really don't have a clear idea about the powerful craziness and the musical extremes of this almost conceptual album. Mr. Didkovsky and friends really take the concept of avant garde beyond most of the musical frontiers we used to know.

In first place the use of guitars... metalic, heavy, dark. Second: an awsome and very acid jazz use of trumpets, sax and clarinets. Third, the constant and agressive use of vocals transmiting crazy poems (really scary when he pleads for 10 dollars). And of course, the interventions of Isso Yukihiro Group on Preaching to the Converted and Beat 14ok, giving to the metal sound of drums a very tribal and almost cathartic twist that ends with a few seconds of improvisation. Then we can listen the awsome Dumb Deconstruction, maybe one of the best songs of the album.

There are not weak points on the album. Not for newbies of course and very difficult to understand but when you catch the stuff every songs transforms into an amazing and unbeliavable acid trip with constant rhythmical changes and an awsome technical achievement.

Some other highlights: Armed Observation, Nerveware No. 3, 17. Pain Waits Until 5pm and the end title When It Blows Its Stacks.

Really amazing and totally recommended for real RIO or avant garde fans...
