2009 release. Both improvisation and rhythm have always been major components of the unmistakable Masters of Reality sound. But on Pine/Cross Dover, the group pits the finer elements of the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Public Image Limited against each other. The end result? A Masters of Reality album that rocks, rolls, and grooves like one devilish son of a gun. Joining longtime leader Chris Goss is long-time band mate John Leamy on drums, as well as a host of special guests, including Eagles of Death Metal bassist Brian O'Connor and guitarist Dave Catching, Merle Jagger guitarist Mark Christian, background singers Shawnee Smith and Missi Pile, as well as former Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Brendon McNichol. Provogue.
