"I'm not willing to say much about who plays on here (wayne horvitz of course, being a previte stalwart, is here), or of the symphonic organization of the material, or of the extraordinary work bobby does forging new music. This is because you should already know these things if you're aware of the best in contemporary hybrid music (ie. orchestrated jazz with electronics, as found most recently on his phenomenal Tzadik release, "the 23 constellations of joan miro"). If you don't know about him, there's nothing for it but to just start anywhere, maybe with this album, on which a magical, satisfying blend of the determined and the spontaneous leads the imagination of dedicated listeners through a polystylistic soundscape. Previte can rock you and lull you entirely in the same song, and his statement is especially strong here. If you like Zorn, this will touch you much the same."
