This is certainly true of the first half of the album, where all of the tracks are upbeat, riddled with infectious, danceable hooks, but at the same time these tracks are quite experimental and certainly daring. A lot of them feature very few vocals, which I think works in their favour as vocalist Kushal Gaya seems to work best delivering short bursts of lyrics, roars and yelps rather than dominating the songs, as evidenced in the second half on 'Free Walk' which is rather mellow in comparison to the rest of the album and focuses a lot more on the vocals.
Aside from 'Free Walk' however, every other track on the album is a winner, particularly the singles, 'Fix My Life' and 'Release' but also the very middle eastern feeling 'Kingdom of Kush' and the stunning, riotous finale that is 'Camel.' Over all this is a thoroughly enjoyable, accessible but also unique album and well worth your time.
This album seems to combine everything into one 35 minutes package. There's Jazz, Funk, World, Rock, Punk, and quite a few more influences in there, and the opening half is absolutely non-stop. It's intense.
Pete Wareham, of Acoustic Ladyland is fantastic on the saxophone, and is showcased on so many tracks, such as my favourite from the album, 'Fix My Life', which features the saxophone right at the forefront of the uptempo Jazz-Funk-YouNameIt madness.
The album mellows a little bit during the tracks, 'Free Walk', and 'Mouth to Mouth', although these are still fantastic tracks, especially 'Free Walk', which has it's african music influence right to the fore. There isn't much in the way of lyrics on offer with this album, but it more than makes up for that with the sheer variety of instrumentation.
Sorry if I've not described what this album sounds like very well, but it really is an album that you have to listen to; no review is ever going to do it justice. A little bit of me wants this album to stay a bit unknown, because then I'd know all about this secret gem of an album, but really I want everyone to experience it.
I'm so glad I found this album and band; they just blew me away. I'd give it 6 stars if I could. I really really really want to see this performed live. One of the best of the year.
A sweet, slim double gatefold card package wraps the CD giving the feel you got from vinyl albums back in the day, with not a plastic insert in sight; the cover graphic image is in various colours too. Melt yourself now.
