3 stars Nine short films is the one and only album released in 2002 by the two famouses musicians in last 35 years Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa, UK, Bozzio-Levin-Stevens, etc) on drums and bassist Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, Niacin, Planet X, Steve Vai, etc). They join forces for this album as Bozzio & Sheehan. Well, this album is hard to rate, to review and for sure is hard to listen. I needed lots of spins to get into the music offered by this album, sometimes is to experimental for my style. Clearly as inspiration is King Crimson, lots of intricate parts with jazzy show off and prog passages, but all melted in a quite strange atmosphere, with let's say bizzare arrangements. The musicinship is of course top notch, the main problem is that the album for me, is too experimental and schizophrenic quirky to rated more then 3 stars. Also I really don't like the narration Bozzio is doing here, it has a theatrical aproach that don't fit here, IMO. All pieces are to my ears, ok, nothing more. So, I prefer both musicians in other projects or bands such as UK, Niacin , etc. I've listning I guess 5-6 times to get into the music of Nine short films and I think was enough for the next 20 years.
