4 stars Despite the band being led by electric vibes player Marc Wagnon, Tunnels seems to be dominated by Brand X alumni Percy Jones, who plays bass, of course, and drummer Frank Katz. The music, primarily because of Jones' unique, and impossible to imitate bass lines, sounds very close to classic Brand X. This isn't to say that Wagnon is a slouch on his MIDI-vibes, just that the agressive, high energy fusion is so close to that of the aforementioned fusion giants that a casual listener might mistake them.

Wagnon uses his MIDI-vibes to control synth patches, so although he often uses traditional tuned percussion sounds, many songs sound like they have traditional keyboards. And while Van Manakis is no John Goodsall on guitar, he certainly has the chops to keep up with a giant like Jones.
