Probably their best album yet.

Wow, this is some music you need to pay attention to, not for backdrop at all. The band is playing a hybrid form of RIO inflected fusion, albeit, it's very accessable to most fusion listeners. Some bands that come to mind are: Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, Zappa, Miriodir, Henry Cow, Happy Family, yet unlike these bands mentioned, they are a bit easier to digest, lot's of shifty time signatures, interesting mood swings, quirky and squonky sax riffage, all in all, the sound of the band is very adventurous without being so technical you would need a musical theory phd to understand.
