This review is from: Internationally Recognised Aliens (Audio CD)
excellent and fluent playing on good compositions..some great grooves and a wide selection of styles..all playing well. Solos often a bit short [concise?] so the players' ability to stretch ideas and develop these into new and exciting worlds are cut short, unlike when they appear 'live'. Also a 'humorous' track with a story overstays its welcome... hearing the same 'amusing' joke over and over again rarely pays dividends- it is steve swallow 'impersonating' a curmudgeon.. a postmodern joke about a joke?..... Judicious editing, fewer tracks with more expansive solos might be the way forward....
