3 stars The lates from Frogg Cafe from 2010 named Batleless edge is a step down from previous works, at least for me. This is more avant jazz with lots of pointless noodlings, even is not bad is no intrest for me to listen in over an hour this type of music. After couple of spins, and I must tell the truth that was hard for me to get into the atmosphere of the album, was not the case with Creatures who was instantly catchy in arrangem,ents, on this release the band tried to musch to experiment and to my ears is no cohesiveness in many parts. Contrary with other listners who considered this a masterpiece, to me is far from that, is ok and nothing more. Again between quirky and unusual Zappa jazzy passages the flute, clarinet, cello, etc make a big contribution to over all sound. Not a piece is in front, all are almost same to my ears. Well I didn't expext to this album to sound so avant even the progressive elements are all over. So, I will give 3 stars but is less intresting then previous work Fortunate Observer of Time and far from greatness and magic moments from Creatures. Hardly 3 stars.
