    don’t understand how I miss them. But thank you NPR for introducing me. First, I love the lack of vocals. Nothing ruins a song for me if the words are feeble - Moody Blues, even Pink Floyd. That’s not to say I don’t love great lyrics - Steely dan, Joni, Leonard, but that’s why - as my friends say - i buy so much world music. Snarky Puppy are an institution - part academy, part commune, part touring band in several incarnations. I am enthralled by you guys. Las year I found Christine and the Queens, this year I’ve found Snarky Puppy - the perfect antidote to Trump.
  • Very good

    I discovered Snarky through "we like it here" and have been hooked ever since, I couldn't believe there was this massive band creating some of the best music I've ever heard. This album is different, it's not a live album like "we like it here" it's a studio one but it's still amazing and they're great song writers and players. Before you let these hyper critical reviews cloud your judgement, just buy the cd and listen for yourself. They put so much time and effort and energy into this in an age where it's so incredible hard to make money and be a professional musician outside of pop music, so if you like snarky, buy the album, or 2.

    For all of the overly critical people saying Snarky fell off?? Why, because it's "different"?? It's supposed to be dummies, that's called life, growth, different emotions, & Lastly, Because it's their Musical Responsibility to keep pushing. Wether or not we like it really isn't relevant, cause we're Never going to like everything someone does! So ease the F up with all the Ridiculous criticism.

    These guys are awesome. Part of the joy finding and following true artists is hearing and experiencing what they have to say or express from season to season. While this album isn't as thrilling as their previous records, it doesn't matter. It is silly and crazy to expect every album to offer more surprises than the last. This is a fabulous record with great, thoughtful grooves and melodies. I love being a fan and on the journey with this group. I am looking forward to years, if not decades, of creative work to come. Hope they can stay grounded and free as they move further and further up.
  • Great!

    So I'll start with the obligatory "Snarky Puppy are one of the best bands around." They are my favorite band personally, and the string of albums that is "Tell Your Friends" through "Sylva" are all 5/5 albums to me. Perfection. When I saw the teaser trailer for this album, I was quickly excited to see they would be in the studio, and Michael League himself stated he wanted it to yield to a different result. So is it wrong for me to think this collective of creative geniuses would use the studio as an instrument in itself and come out with some crazy, trippy, out-of-this-world album that would be so filled to the brim with insane production and nuance that at least a few of the songs wouldn't even be able to be pulled off live? Well.. I was wrong.. This album is better than most music being put out today, but compared to the masterpieces that preceded it, it falls short. These songs ALL sound easier to play live than "What About Me?" or the monstrous "The Clearing". The studio is hardly being pushed to its creative boundaries and what we get is easily the least "snarky" album in about a decade. My philosophy with Snarky Puppy is "come for the hooks, stay for the solos." Songs like "Lingus", "Young Stuff", and "The Curtain" rewarded multiple listens because you unraveled a little bit more from each solo every time you heard it. This album doesn't really do the same. There is one great, trippy, elephant-like sax solo that I really like on this album, but the other solos are barely memorable, and Mr. Maher's trumpet solo sounds a little too much like his solo on "The Clearing". And the hooks aren't pulling their weight either compared to previous albums. Most of these songs are just heavy grooves, and the "studio quality" sounds great from a producer/engineer standpoint, but it's not really adding much. The songs that do benefit the most from the production are "Gemini" and "Beep Box" which both are not Michael League songs, but J. Stanton and C. Bullock respectively. And those two are the best on the album I think. I was expecting more spacey, moody, and diverse tracks like those two, but this album lacks in diversity compared to say the incredible diversity of "We Like It Here". "Palmero" and "The Simple Life" especially are two of the most forgettable songs Snarky Puppy has ever written. The front 5 tracks of this album is where the better stuffs at. The whole album is good, and it's Snarky Puppy for sure, but I can't help but feel critical because these guys have set a standard for themselves with their last four proper albums, and this one falls short. I was just expecting way more. They shouldn't have thought about live performance or anything and just pulled a "Sergeant Pepper's" and just played with the studio to make the most insanely snarky music possible. But this is their blandest record in quite sometime. I enjoy this record, but I don't listen to Snarky Puppy for enjoyment, I listen to be blown away.

    Any puppy fans out there know the often stated goal of the music is that it's there's as much for the brain as the body. This newest piece cannot be taken lightly. The production subtle the pieces are stitched together so intricately--one listening is not going to wring it all out. Buy this and you'll be referring to it for the rest of your listening days. I'm not exaggerating. Just get it.
  • Amazing album!
