5 stars Now I understand why they call this band BIRDS AND BUILDINGS. If you were to blast this out into the environment with loudspeakers birds would surely start flying into buildings! To call this music "busy" would be an understatement. The fact that this band so successfully fuses so many musical ideas into every moment at break-neck speed is simply astounding! Brett d'Anon's bass is the absolute wildest since classic era Yes. This is my favorite avant-prog since Mr Bungle

I definitely agree with others about the influences. This sounds like Mr. Bungle and National Health joined the circus and met Magma. All decided to jam but then the Mothers of Invention, Van der Graaf, King Crimson and countless mystery guests showed up to the party and this is the final result. This is the perfect blend of avant-prog, Canterbury jazz-fusion, zeulish rhythms and unpredictability. Unexpected snippets remind me of everything from Pink Floyd, to drone metal, even Kenny G! This everything-but-the-kitchen-sink sound really scratches my avant-prog itch. This multipurpose masterpiece has me trapped under its spell and I like it! I actually like this better than the fantastic debut album, so 6 stars!
