Not bad but nothing special... meandering in a directionless sort of way. Considering the names involved, I expected a lot more from these Trio albums, but they all seem relatively aimless to my ears. But to be honest I haven't been much impressed by anything Moritz has done since Rhythm & Sound, except for that superb Tony Allen remix a few years ago.. Perhaps the bar was set too high and I'm jaded..

1. I'm looking for a reason to listen to this beyond it being some guys who have done some damn fine music in their time. The nature of the recordings implies there be some faith taken on the players and the listeners part. So here we go. I'd swear as structure one expands, it's sounding more and more like the Grateful Dead circa late 80's at the interlude where Drums recedes in to a pattern and right before taking off into Space. This is drift music. 2. Jam bands can use electronic music to great effect when used with a certain regard towards what they can do to a pulse, i.e. groove. Where Structure One loses touch and increasingly goes into itself and some tangerine dream like arpeggios. Two comes alive and has some beads of sweat forming about it as it begins to wiggle and writhe underneath a hypnotizing and flashing framework that only ever, and slowly fades into the background before falling over itself into a canyon. 3. An ocean of sound slowly washing over me and taking me away into the sonic œther and brushing up against the Orb and their logness of dub influences. Play twice before listening music. 4. Guitars without some regard to their noise making and textural ability are just doomed to always just be noodly instruments. Gypsy movements and jammy spasm's in a structured German style. 5. Not sure. But there are some moments of this improv ambient get down that sound not unlike what I suspect would happen when you put a series of different effects on a set of wind chimes going off.
