Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
4 stars While the liner notes call this album "metal jazz", I believe a better description would be "hip hop punk jazz". Mostly, this is aggressive, but highly creative attitude adjustment music. These guys are angry. But they know how to build a great band. With sidemen like Don Cherry, Gary Windo, Melvin Gibbs, their album is going to have something going for it. And then there's Percy Jones. This most amazing bass play could perform over the sound of monkeys throwing their poop, and make it into something wonderful.

The best songs are the ones with the great Mr. Jones: Carburetor, Constant Fear and Forget About The Earth/This Is Where It's At. And the Isley Brother's Fight The Power gets a strong reworking as well.

Not for the faint of heart, but this album has a lot of great music in it.
