From the first song up to the last, let it roll, they are all fantastic. One of them is a masterpiece Dark Shining Eyes. The arrangement is superb ! Extremely beautiful. This Cd is full of surprises like Peaks & Valliums beginning as samba and turning into 6/8 Jazz ! Loved Ones changes my state of mind, reminds Villa Lobos. Awesome band, amazing CD.
