5 stars John Zorn's tribute to William Burroughs - just three long compositions, played by Zorn's all- stars band, his best ever collaborators, including keabordist 'ohn Medeski,guitarist Marc Ribot and bassist Trevor Dunn, between others.

Music there is just collage of the best Zorn learned during his long career: free/avant jazz based, it mixes his movies' soundtrack themes, almost metal hardcore, electronic avant garde, contemporary classic and many other elements.

Excellent thing with this album is music being quite complex and very eclectic by origin, is mixed in very organic and even quite accessible mix.Being chaotic, nothing there sounds like this; being quite radical by it's nature, it sounds as well balanced intelligent complex but quite pleasant recording.

These three compositions could be used as great soundtrack to Burroughs themes, but at the same time have such rich content themselves, that don't need any video component to be listened with big interest.

With my love to Burroughs world and Zorn's sound, this album is one of best Zorn's releases from some last years, and really one of the best avant prog album, released in 2010.

My rating is 4,5, rounded to 5.
