5 stars The world has been without a Frank Zappa for far too long. And because of that, I welcome those that try to replicate the splendor of his music with open arms. And Isildurs Bane succeeds magnificently. While creating original music of their own style, this band manages to also capture the spirit of Zappa's best instrumental work.

The flight onward - Phases 1-5, available for listening on this web site, perfectly captures the spirit of Zappa's best lineup from the mid-seventies. It sounds like it was inspired by songs like Inca Roads. And Opportunistic walk - Phases 1-2 mixes Zappa-like classical with the big band sound of The Grand Wazoo with the fusion of Pierre Moerlin's Gong added as well.

I can't thank this web site enough for introducing me to this amazing masterpiece.
