I generally see jazz music as something with a set theme(whether that be a rhythm, a subtle melody etcetera), but yet permits the music to cover ground outside of said theme, yet complements it.

Of course that's the vague definition. I'm sure the more specific definition involves the various rhythmic elements of it to improvisation to swing etcetera

I'd say your thing about the "theme" works pretty well in a general sense, but classical music does the same thing, with the expostion of a theme, variations, a second theme, return to the first theme, etc.

Still though, it's hard to define things like this.

I think classical is almost the opposite of transcending above the theme, seeing as every sound and note in classical music revolves around the basic structure, yet just constantly expands that structure, as seen in movements.

That's true also I guess, so I'm out of ideas on that one haha. Whatever people mean when they say "jazzy" though, this album is it.

Sometimes I think this album gets too obnoxious. Then other times I think this album is awesome. But most of the time I think this album is obnoxiously awesome, so it balances out.

What do you mean by that, because I can't see what about this could be seen as obnoxious.

I guess, but it's never in-your-face about it, at least not to me. It goes crazy but it just makes the songs more exciting. They build.

Besides that this album is a party....I still can't find the appropriate environment for listening to it.

True dat potato haha. I love MmmmHmmm, but I can see what you mean I guess. I love this for night driving, I use it to break up the non-stop Funeral Diner/Envy/Daitro rotation. Although I realize that seems a little strange....
