4 stars Good evening folks, now you must introduce yourselves to the Danish group Taylor's Universe's music! It's a very interesting band, you can call them avant-prog but I think fusion would have been a good definition. They are from Denmark and has been making music since 1994 and "Worn out" seams to be their twelfth record. The cover picture of this record shows a pair of worn out shoes and I find it artistic.

I have already told you this should be something to explore. There is a lot to like in Taylor's universe. The group features Robin C Taylor (guitars, basses, keyboards, percussion), Jakob Mygind(saxophones), Karsten Vogel(saxophones), Hugh Steinmetz(trumpet & flugelhorn) and Klaus Thrane(drums). All these instruments give a glimpse of the world of this music. The music is instrumental and borderless. The record contains six tracks and here I'm going to say what I think about the tracks.

"Floating rats" is a perfect introder, which includes almost everything you need in music. I also think this sounds little like 70s sound and perhaps some Zappa(10/10). "Munich" is the longest track, partially very mighty and of course I love the saxes(8/10). "Imaginary church" proves it's unique music in this track with a fully nice sound, well it is ingratiating but still perfect(10/10). "Cruelty in words" is a little different, darker than the others(6/10) and "Jens in Afghanistan" has an intriguing intruduction which is very experimental(6/10). The last track "Sergeant Pepperoni" is a crazy and well-fitted end of the record(8/10).

I can't find anything boring or bad in the album "Worn out". Of course it could have been interesting with vocals but if you want to hear vocals you can try another band. Taylor's universe is an interesting Danish progressive band which newest record I recommend. Four even stars!
