5 stars Epileptic Prog - This is my favorite kind of music! So many tempo changes and ridiculous variations, random satiric ideas and well elaborated technical passages. All this without losing sense. Intelligent and abstract.

How could I resist? I fell in love with this album right from the first track, The Kokonino Stomp. Looking at this hellish cover art and listening to the saxophone riff I felt my neck huge as a tower, dancing like a snake and spinning round and round. Do you wanna sniff some RIO? So this is the definitive album for you! Lenghty stupid tracks, complex songwriting, weird noises, annoying childish riffs (just check The Secret Life Of Walter Riddle), totally avant-garde... everything you ever needed. Tiger Tea always makes me laugh with that "beach" feeling. Like Frank Zappa, these guys have the skills to make comedy music. You will probably notice the track titles, they are funny too. From the line-up, Mike Sary, the bass player, is the highlight. He is the mind behinds French TV. Hmm, the album features a great cover from Zammla Mammas Manna.

One of my all time favorites. If I had to force you reader to listen to an album, it would be The Violence of Amateurs.
