Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
4 stars Despite the fact that Henry Kaiser plays very little guitar on this album, it is quite good. The songs are all Synclavier composition (sequences, I presume), by Kaiser and keyboardist Sergei Kuriokhin. Kuriokhin shows that he is quite adept in a number of keyboard styles, classical, jazz, blues, and Kaiser's weirdness. As that statement indicates, this album explores all of these styles (and more), with Kaiser adding some solos, keyboards, and really strange percussion.

Most of the pieces are ver short excursions into the musical ideas. Only one piece would qualify as long. The Concept Of Concept flows through various musical realms, and actually sounds like it could have been split into about three of the shorter pieces.

It's hard to actually describe the music itself, but there is some romantic classical, some that sound like circus music, and lots of experimental pieces. But don't miss Kaiser's great solos in the two Rattlesnake Round-Up, Texas blues numbers.
