Amid all the call-and-response exchanges, Standell generally accelerates the undercurrents with an animated attack, consisting of colossal block chords, well placed harmonics and extremely quick lines on top. The pianist will periodically inject a saccharine melody or two into the overall scheme of things while bassist, Johan Berthling tends to alter the band's dynamic with weeping arco-bass passages and booming lines. The musicians abide by an autonomous approach as they delve into a variety of sub themes in concurrence with more than just a few curiously interesting propositions. Recommended.
