A lot of blood and ink has been spilled over another band on the Temporary Residence imprint, Explosions In The Sky, but Maserati, returning after a four year recording hiatus, may quite possible deserve and win more acclaim with this opus. Informed by the
brilliance of classic Can and early, post-Syd Pink Floyd (think Meddle) this collective smashes through the forebrain barrier and delivers feel-intensive instrumental prog that'll please your Philosophy of Science prof as much as it will impress the kids down at the local VFW hall. Check out the percussive workout during "Synchronicity IV," the noisy lather of "This Is A Sight We Had One Day From The High Mountain," or the "One Of These Days"-esque "Show Me The Season" for more on what, exactly, makes
Maserati one of the best bands of its kind.
