Copernicus is the free voice of scientific contemplation in rock music. On this CD he works with a great lineup of session musicians capable of flexing from rock improvisation to New Orleans styles. Mike Fazio is on electric guitar. There's a roster of titles aimed to provoke any listener's sense of comfort, given the wrenching lyrical deliveries. At times, Copernicus is like a much better crafted William Shatner singing, but usually, his introspection into the realities of quark level physics is a visceral, mad parody of science brought to the level of a street philosopher. This is music with an incredibly dramatic New York free expression that builds and builds. Each piece repeats it's theme relentlessly, allowing a lot of room for thought and pleasure, while the band accompanies with impressive riffs. The juxtaposition of hard science physics-speak with rock music is incredible. It's a contrast that one rarely can experience anywhere else. The tracks are long, ranging from an average eight minutes, to over 21 minutes for the final Revolution!! jam. This CD is good news in case you haven't heard anything recently from Copernicus. Powerfully built songs and a great band make this late season 2008 CD one to definitely seek out.
