Of course as you'd expect there is a treasure-trove of opportunities to hear the unparalleled skronk guitar of Mr. Ribot here and he sounds great. But it is situated in a set of full-fledged trio music that hits hard but also has musical substance which stays in your head, so you get the full hit of goodness.
It's hard-edged, it kicks, the group takes no prisoners, and then they throw some unexpected curves at you, too, that break it up, like a nice version of Brubeck's "Take Five" (RIP Dave). And the quasi-mid-eastern "Masters of the Internet" is a corker.
It's an album that has the excitement of a live date when a band is completely on it. They are.
Great guitar, great band, great music for the seeker of brains inside the brawn! Listen and love this one if you will. I do.
