Impossibly well-written; musically, it is well thought out and wholesome in its completeness; creative and technical without the trite technicality tunnel-vision that plagues math rock; melodically complex and uplifting
Favorite track: Gilgamesh (R - Texas).
Frantic and intense but not without a jazzy melodic sensibility, Monobody has put out an impressive progressive fusion album here. I regret not buying it sooner. Check it out!
Favorite track: Exformation.
This is the re-definition of prog-jazz-double-bassness. This is where Tortoise could only hope to end up--and never did. Miles ahead of other groups. Passing riffs and rhythms with the depth and understanding that only jazz genius's could hold. We are lucky to have this melding of so many styles
Favorite track: Lifeguard of a Helpless Body.
