Xcommunication is Brand X's best?
Arno E. Jones | Portland, OR USA | 09/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I now own most of Brand X's stuff and this is the one I play the most. It seems like every time I hear it I hear something new. Every week I have a new favorite song, not a loser to be found. I love how the bass seems like it's the dominant instrument, but very tastefully done - not like a bass players album at all. Well mixed and clean. Sounds good played quietly or full blast."

"If you are into poppy jazz type stuff,this cd is not for you.Stellar drumming from Frank Katz and top notch bass playing from Percy Jones,supported by able guitarist John Goodsall,this disc is a fusion burner from start to finish.Drummers of all ages could benefit from Franks playing."
Brand X Returns!

""X-Communication" is the 1992 comeback album for Brand X, a big ten years after their last release, 1982's "Is There Anything About?". For this album, the band are a trio: guitarist John Goodsall, bassist Percy Jones, and new drummer Frank Katz. "X-Communication" is filled with great progressive jazz/rock, including memorable jammers like "Xanax Taxi," "Liquid Time," "A Duck Exploding," and "Church Of Hype." Goodsall also gets in a beautiful acoustic solo piece, "Healing Dream." Although the group are without a proper keyboard player on "X-Communication" (Robin Lumley, where are you?), Goodsall plays the required keyboard parts by the use of a Midi-guitar (and he does it very well, too). The trio sound great on this release, with Goodsall's fiery fretboard work, Jones' thumping bass lines, and while Katz doesn't drum with quite the same flair that Phil Collins did, his performance on the skins is very impressive. Brand X's "X-Communication" is an excellent return for this classic jazz/rock fusion group."
