A difficult cd to review for me, it's quite a mixture of styles and genres, and none are overly dominant in the music. They kind of take a global fusion approach, while having a strong dependance on rock themes and guitar dominance, all while having some ethno/global tribal vocals echoing over the jammish tracks, the singing is more for ambient effect, rather than lyrical in style, the music is not something that would drag me back continually, but for the record, it's not horrible. 

 

It's a pretty short cd overall, 30 minutes give or take. And there are times where the music seems pretty basic and predictable, so for progressive or fusion diehards, this cd will not bend one's mind, I would have a listen first before you consider the band, for some reason, I get a bit of a Djam Karet feel from them.
