I really want to like this album, and there are certainly some enjoyable elements. If you like dense grooves like I do, the playing is great, but what keeps me from rating this higher, is simply the incessant B3 tone. I'm typically a B3 fan, but in a trio setting, with playing this busy, it can get tiresome. I keep wanting to hear more cutting synth square and sawtooth waves, and not more B3. Some grooves even have a dated ELP sound, despite the blistering bass, and modern drum tones. Overall, despite Dennis and Billy being some of my favorite players, this album is hard to listen to.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
