VERSEBRIDGECHORUS?, Kinobe's second album, starts off with a bang: "Butterfly" is delicate and unfolds beautifully for its short life, while "Having a Moment" drifts far into lounge territory. The focus seems to be on creating actual songs, rather than extended grooves -- hence the title of the album. "Summer in the Studio" takes the well-known Hammond organ line from "Summer in the City" and transports it into trip-hop. Not all the tracks are tight, however: "Tooth and Nail" doesn't seem to be going beyond sort of typical spy-funk (the dark groove of "Slave One" with its sample from Smoke City's "Devil Mood" is much better), and "The Woodsman and the Wolf" has more mediocre "The G# Spot" and "Neon Tetra" help redeem those tracks, but also suffer a bit from aimless, freeform drift. So while there's nothing as immediate and memorable as "Slip Into Something," there's still plenty to enjoy here.
