5 stars The Adventures of Greggery Peccary is nice musical story with some bombastc moments and some humour, but the whole song can be considered as a bad joke. The reasons to give five stars for the album are 'RDNZL' and 'Revised Music for Guitar and Low-Budget Orchestra', both being very compact yet progressive. Classical and jazz music experiments, very melodic and rhythmic. RDNZL is more crazy but they both are also chill-out music, very harmonic, though still experimental and contrastic. Reminds me of Henry Cow in its more reasonable form. Though, every instrument, for example the piano and xylophone are very distinct (not irritatingly.. it just makes it sound even electronic), the overall is very full, though minimalistic and not noise. They have many jazz formats, but not the usual jazz rock or jazz. No use saying more because you have to hear them.
