5 stars THese guys were having fun! I don't know if they ever intended for Brand X to be a real working band, or just a whimsical project for a group of hyper-talented musical gurus. Whatever their motivation - everything clicked on Morrocan Roll. Yes, it's more fusion than prog and as such, the playing virtuoso-quality. I think the ideas behind each track are brilliant, but perhaps they didn't know quite where to take the song, or how to finish it. And I say that being only half sure of myself on that one. The opening track, with Phill Collins wailing like a Bedoin is terrific. Great percussion from MORRIS PERT. But my favorite track has to be Disco Suicide!!! Catchy, jazz-fusionesque and definately prog. I love the vox and chimes. Can't stop listening to it. For sure this quasiprog album is a must have for the broad minded prog enthusiast. It's just too good not to have.
