4.0 excellentEasterInTheBatcave | June 8th 16

Four diverse tracks, each a sonic representation of a different work by 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud. "Illuminations" is an interesting (if overlong) track: the piano part is fully notated, whereas the rhythm section is improvised. "Conneries" is one of Zorn's infamous file card pieces-- it features the French actor/director Mathieu Almaric yelling/speaking Rimbaud's words over Zorn's eclectic instrumentation. "A Season in Hell" is a noise track, and "Bateau ivre" is a fascinating, endlessly shifting modern classical piece. Overall, Rimbaud is excellent.

★★ I formerly had a soundoff for this album, but Sputnik doesn't let you delete soundoffs, so I
replaced the soundoff with this. Check out my new account, EasterInTheBatcave, for all of my
soundoffs and reviews, including the one for this album. ★★
