Review by Atavachron
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Exciting guitar-based mathrock quartet that spiral and twist their way through a heavy progressive universe that has only just begun to expand, pushing its way through the post-prog throngs. Representing the San Diego brand of Math, this pair of guitars, bass, and drums whack it up something mean and give the giants of this style, like Don Caballero, a run for their money with notably high musicianship, fresh ideas in the arithmetic of hard knocks, and a heated pace that is hard to follow.

Also in evidence is a stiff shot of King Crimson which gives them a more varied palate, though this influence should not be over-estimated and is more conceptual than derivative; these four young musicians stand rather firmly in a mathrock camp and represent the flowering of this kinetic, sometimes frantic musical style, deceptive in its honesty and played with the passion of garage music but the contemplative brow of Prog. A real winner.

Review by Mellotron Storm
3 stars You know Robert Fripp has an influence on a band when the title of one of their songs is "Fripp For Girls". Of course you just need to hear the music to know the influence is there. I think DON CABELLARO would be a good reference point as well, I just don't think this is nearly as good.

"Blue Fly Green Fly" is a good uptempo song with some great bass and guitar work. The drummer has some fast hands as heard before 3 minutes. "Nasty Portion" is all over the place and quite a challenging listen. It gets better as it plays out and the Fripp-like guitar is terrific. "Fripp For Girls" features a good contrast between the crazy, fast paced passages with the more enjoyable, slower sections.

"Technically You..." is definitely a technical and annoyingly song. The Fripp-like guitar is a highlight though. "Nachos" is better as they impliment some good ideas and in that way it's quite experimental when compared to the other songs. "Johnny Dep" is my favourite track on the album. This is by far the most enjoyable song as the drums, bass and guitars all work together to make some amazing melodies. The bass stands out later. "Untitled" is a short song with the same melody as the intro of the opening song "Blue Fly Green Fly". The guitar is slowly picked.

This is a good record that could be a lot better in my opinion. Still worth checking out though if you like Math-Rock.
