Format: Audio CD
After a 10 year hiatus whilst pursuing solo careers with varying commercial success, Brand X returned as a trio in 1992 with some hard hitting if slightly clinically delivered power fusion. The pared down format certainly allows greater freedom for Jones's awesome bass technique but the use of Goodsall's midi guitar to trigger keyboards rather than employing a genuine keys man has, I feel mixed success. One of the highlights is the fabulous drumming of Frank Katz (recruited from Jones's own band Tunnels), who lends to the music a sense of timing that only Phil Collins had previously achieved some 15 years earlier. As with the Masques album, this is very serious "head" fusion, and there is a somewhat sinister, aggressive underlying tone. However, as reunion albums go it is pretty damn fine. Listen to Jones's solo track "Strangeness" on which the bassist showcases his full technical repertoire including scatching strings with the thumbnail, pulling strings off the fingerboard, and making the strings buzz and rattle against each other. You have to hear it to believe it.

4.0 out of 5 stars the days when MIDI reigned. 6 Aug. 2016
By jorge gonzález -larramendi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's really a 3 star in average terms of Brand X: formulaic impro-jammy tourdeforce. From the days it was believed MIDI would save the guitarists or something 😊. However: It's real Brand X. Great musicianship. If sounding like contemporary Allan Holdsworth - if I didn't have it, I'd Buy it again. Meanwhile: Get Those recent live releases! I think there's a new one! Let's Check!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brand X Returns! 4 May 2007
By Alan Caylow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"X-Communication" is the 1992 comeback album for Brand X, a big ten years after their last release, 1982's "Is There Anything About?". For this album, the band are a trio: guitarist John Goodsall, bassist Percy Jones, and new drummer Frank Katz. "X-Communication" is filled with great progressive jazz/rock, including memorable jammers like "Xanax Taxi," "Liquid Time," "A Duck Exploding," and "Church Of Hype." Goodsall also gets in a beautiful acoustic solo piece, "Healing Dream." Although the group are without a proper keyboard player on "X-Communication" (Robin Lumley, where are you?), Goodsall plays the required keyboard parts by the use of a Midi-guitar (and he does it very well, too). The trio sound great on this release, with Goodsall's fiery fretboard work, Jones' thumping bass lines, and while Katz doesn't drum with quite the same flair that Phil Collins did, his performance on the skins is very impressive. Brand X's "X-Communication" is an excellent return for this classic jazz/rock fusion group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well textured album 30 Dec. 2009
By Musiclover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Each song on this album tells it's own musical story with emotion and texture. What I like most of this album is the layers of music lying within the sounds. The album is well produced with a decided direction into the obscure. I am most impressed with the drumwork, Frank Katz did an excellent job. I am a fan of Phil Collins' drumming but feel Katz provided exactly what was needed for this incarnation of Brand X. Not a beat was missed. I like other Brand X albums better, but Xcommunication is a winner right along with the best. I call this a jazz fusion classic of the 90's.
