great live band gets it right in the studio
As much as I've enjoyed seeing Brock and the boys in concert, they are one of the few 'jam'/improvising rock groups out there that can really capture their live chops in the studio. douglas258 is right, Three Weeks does stand out and is one of the group's finest compositions and jam-vehicles, but vocal-less tracks like Perihelion, Sundog, Astro Monkey, Teakwood Betz, and Robot Waltz better shows their ability to patiently build to a gorgeous crescendo several times within a single song. When Brock does sing, however, his lyrics are cutting, emotional, and to the point. The grooves and rhythms enhance his lyrical messages. The band's name perfectly describes their sound as they latch onto a groove, milk it, and then reverse into a fresh one. Love the interplay of the electric/slide guitars with the piano/synth. Love these guys.
