Boy do I hate this band. This music is so awful, so poppy, so blandly generic, so pandering. They are the worst in 1970s commercialism, gray lounge music, blue haired old lady swill.

About the ONLY thing I like about this music is how, wait just a minute. The only thing I like is how Charlie Mariano's swirling sax whirls through the......hang on, just relax: what I meant to say was how world and jazz and funk are mixed and.......well, no, that's not the only thing, either. There are also Maria Archer's cool as a jazz cat's vocals, piercing through.

Obviously, you catch I am playing. Had to hook ya' somehow. Embryo has spent the last forty years, with leader and drummer Christian Bouchud, making diverse world jazz funk, and about a gazillion albums, and as far as I know, they are still at it, and if they go another forty, I'll be listening right with you.

Bad Heads and Bat Cats may be one of their best, While the band started with pure art rock on albums like Steig Aus, they soon combined this with funk on albums like We Keep On.

Bad Heads and Bat Cats adds a Maria Archer and rounds out the music, that can seamlessly mix jazz and avant classical and world and funk--not song by song, but second by second. The vocals on Bad Heads add a particularly high end jazz flavor to music, and make it more fleshy and rich than some other of Embryo' funkier albums of the 1970s. The way the band burns through so musical terrain so fast gives you the feeling they are both improvisers who have mastered conveying serendipity, or this music is planned and played with the utmost ability and care. The answer, of course, is both.

But let's get back to that pretend I hate you I love you thing for a second. Do you think I could pick up women this way?
