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.
