Tosin Abasi Is One Talented Djentleman,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Joy Of Motion (Audio CD)
This album - the third and latest offering from Tosin Abasi and his jaw-droppingly talented musical cohorts - is nothing short of breathtaking. I won't bore you with a track-for-track review (although Physical Education is a particular highlight for me just now); you can check them all out for yourself, but suffice it to say that the compositions and performances captured on this record are enough to make your nose bleed, your foot tap (if you can figure out the time signatures..!) and your head bang. How do you even conceive complex musical tapestries like these anyway?! I play guitar, but Tosin Abasi is one player who's musical brain-wiring and technique I can scarcely even begin to fathom. Put simply, Animals As Leaders is groove-prog-jazz-fusion-metal at its most genius and expert level of execution. Period. If you're already a fan, you really don't want to leave this one out of your AAL collection. Complete eight-string genius from start to finish.
