"As a fan of Bernie Worrell's work with P-Funk, Bill Laswell projects and Talking Heads, I was interested in this Bernie Worrell solo project. Lots of the folks you'd expect participated: Laswell is co-producer and all over the place, Fred Wesley, Buckethead, Umar Bin Hassan. But frankly it didn't do much for me. Much of it seems to be Bernie's attempt at classical/"serious" music. Which is fine by me, but I did not find it compelling in that genre either. For tracks as long as these (4 of 7 are over 6 minutes, two of those are respectively 9:48 and 14:43), you'd better have more thematic development or one heck of a good vamp going. Neither is the case here. I'll give it two stars for ambition, and concede that it's better to aim high and miss than aim low and hit the target."

"This is such a trippy cd.I was actually lucky enough to find it at a used cd store for $6!the song "the mask"w/buckethead is very good and there is a crazy poetry reading in the 2nd song.the whole cd is lengthly and every song has a unique flavor to it making the cd pretty much a must-have if you enjoyed buckethead's colma,death cube k,laswell,etc.(also,I believe bernie's got some of copies of "woo" availible on his own site for the time being,but they'll probably go fast.)"
