This album hits me deep in a place I didn’t know I had. There’s so much going on and at the same time it isn’t a total headache to wrap around. The level of ability really shines on this record, and makes statements far beyond that of many other power trios. And Beave’s signature JCM sounds absolutely eargasmic. Shame there’s no lyric sheet in the hard copy though. Otherwise flawless.
Favorite track: Balsam.
