I'd probably take a BTBAM song over anything on this in the end.

I feel like there's only so much you can do with a sax, bass, and drums versus an entire band.

@livingisland
good catch, Island. There is definitive Zappa-esque fusion influence in this album (Which is never bad).

@balcaen
You have a point. There is an enthusiasm for progressive elements that are very reminiscent to BTBAM specially Colors with
some cosmic synth that comes straight out of Orbs as well. But it's a good album i think.

In terms of sound they are definitely different from btbam. The only thing at times which is really similar is Brigg's bass lines and thats natural because it is Brigg's playing style after all. Some of the progressive leanings you can suggest nods to BTBAM influence but thats only really because its Briggs who is part of the songwriting process. Fact is this is a jazz fusion project, BTBAM have no jazz fusion in their sound whatsoever.

"Just because they aren't noodling away at a guitar with some dude
wailing away in the background doesn't mean THIS IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM BTBAM"

That is not what I meant by that at all.

"something their fans don't seem to understand is that not everyone thinks complexity is the pinnacle
of music."

I don't think that either if that was directed towards me. Btw sorry Bloc for saying that you were on crack was a bit harsh haha.

No worries man.

Think about a song on Colors or The Great Misdirect but replace almost all the guitars with a saxophone. It would sound a lot like this, no?

I downloaded "Bath and "Leaving Your Body Map"- and I must say I'm really liking the experimental style. Good rec, man.

I finished Bath but I still have yet to listen to "Leaving"

Bloc, I honestly don't think BTBAM songs would sound much like this with a saxophone. There's too much variation with BTBAM for that to hold true in my eyes, whereas there seems to be a more overarching musical idea here that Trioscapes strives for.

Well, for me this is easier. I like Jazz, I don't like BTBAM. So yeah, though this is probably not as good as the 5023502350230523050 jillion kvlt Polish jazz bands.

^Haha. Very well said. Though I'm yet to listen to it, I doubt it will top my faves.

But seriously, how many Jazz bands do you guys have? Alone Contemporary Noise Quartet/Quintet/Sextet and Pink Freud are totally killing it.

Good call, except for the fact that I'm not a huge fan of them at all. A couple of really good albums, the rest is boring
