3.6 greatErwann S. STAFF | April 18th 23

Despite the loss of these batshit crazy banshee vocals, Echoes undoubtedly is Fire!, but doubtedly is Orchestra (apparently "doubtedly" ain't no word, get your shit together Merriam Webster). That's because the whole soundscape is much more restrained, with classical elements being more prominent to the point of giving hard minimalist vibes. Fortunately, this new babe features its fair share of memorable licks and dynamic shifts to stay interesting during its mammoth 1h50 runtime.

3.5 greatGene Gol-Jonsson CONTRIBUTOR | February 13th 24

Apt title, as the album is basically like being locked in a large noir storage space or sth, filled with junk, only hearing distant echoes from godforsaken spirits too comfortable with their disembodiment.

Was actually surprised to find this new Fire! Orchestra album so be such an engaging record for how long it is; nearly 2 hours in length. The fifth album from the Sweden 28-member experimental big band group comes through with another helping of expansive and enchanting jazz music. There are a lot of creative twists in turns. From the bouncy and fun ECHOES tracks that have a lot of jazz fusion, free jazz, and various shades of spiritual jazz woven through their average 12-14 minute run time. But then there are also more experimental and avant-grade short passages in between the ECHOES tracks that feel much darker. Although the album can have a problem with odd vocal additions that really don?t add anything, the instrumentals and layout of everything are extremely enjoyable. Any fan of modern experimental jazz should give this a listen.
