Editorial Reviews

"Play with Fire", is The Reign of Kindo's 3rd full length record and 1st with newest member Danny Pizarro Jr. on piano. Newly relocated to New York City as a base, Kindo has released possibly their best record yet. The record starts out with "The Hero, The Saint, The Tyrant, and The Terrorist a song that screams "The Reign of Kindo" and would be a fit on any thier first two records. "Help It" has a killer bass line and sounds like every band member is having a musical conversation with one another, a perfectly in sync and melodic conversation. "Sing When No Ones Around" is more guitar driven than past records and the percussion kills when it comes in. "Dust" is a brilliant tune pulsing with rythym and slide guitar licks. Rare is it to find modern music that pinpoints the middle ground between a respect for past greats and a boldness to pave tomorrow. This is, quite modestly, the definition of The Reign of Kindo. Citing influences from Dave Brubeck to Ben Folds to Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to John Mayer, there's not a degree of pomposity in this sound, just an honesty in the group's craft to blend such diverse influences into an identity

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for Everyone July 30, 2013
By Tommy
Format:Audio CD
This band really is something special. My love for jazz music actually brought me to this band in the first place and was astounded how they integrate jazz concepts into rock music. Kindo breaks boundaries between all genres and has something to offer everyone. Some of my friends listen to very heavy death metal type music that I can't get into but I showed them this CD just the other day and they fell in love. Its music like this that has the power and depth to catch the attention of anyone, no matter what they are used to listening. Its such a pleasure listening to all their albums and seeing what they will do next. "Play with fire" is another solid record I instantly fell in love with. You can really tell that the band was as excited as the fans were to see were they would go next musically. They could have easily put out another "Rhythm,Chord, and Melody" but decided to venture elsewhere, and I have complete respect for them in doing so. The added sounds of the strings and horns was beautifully done and the lyrics hook you right in. And, it was about time someone put out a song like "I Hate Music" thanks for that! Tell it like it is! In all, Reign of Kindo has done nothing but impress me with their new album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Symphonic Jazz-Fu Fiya-Funky Hotsawce July 30, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
LOVING the addition of a horns section to this already phenomenal band. I LOVE the symphonic nature of the production,and personally my favorite are the horns and funky elements, but the strings (and....woodwinds?) add a complex and layered depth to the tracks it truly blows my mind. Composition, musicianship (including standout vocals of course), & lyricism intricate with an exquisitely smooth overall flow with unexpected dips and turns and flips and leaps.... keeps me interested. Love the bassist for keepin that bassline funky when it fits! Bravo, mad respect, big ups, and namaste gentlemen. I will keep introducing your music to mi amigos cuz I fuggin love it loike dat =) LOVING THIS ALBUM MORE ERRY TIME THRU (on my 7th or 8th full listen thru) Grazie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings August 22, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Having just discovered Kindo about a year ago, I may not be the best reviewer for this, but I'll let you know my thoughts. I loved the two pre releases, "Sunshine", and "Rhythm in the Night". My anticipation was high, and there was a lot of hype about this new album. The first video, "Romancing a Stranger" was tremendous , and "Dust" was good too. Listening to the whole album, however, was a disappointment. There is no questioning the musicianship and creativity, or the production quality. All excellent. I respect the attempt to evolve. I just haven't found this music as enjoyable as their past work. maybe I made a mistake listening to their EP right before downloading this? My first exposure to Kindo was "October Storm" on youtube, and nothing on this album even comes close for me. I can think of several older songs of theirs that would be better than any of the tracks on this album. I can't see any of the tracks from "Play with Fire" being the best song on any of their other albums. There are several songs from this album I will keep after, and see if my thoughts change.

Personally, I found the music, while excellently performed, a bit disjointed sounding, as if maybe too much was said musically in some of the tracks. I missed some of the sweeping grandeur and beauty of their earlier music. "Rhythm Chord and Melody" still stands at the top of Kindo's music for me. Lyrically, I found some of the same yearnings, concerns, thoughtfulness as is found on previous albums, but not as much of the hopefulness that was suggested on earlier songs from this Band. There seems to be a tinge of bitterness or sarcasm that I didn't get so much of in the past. All true and legit emotions, for sure, but I really like to get more of the positive side of the emotional palette in the music I listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soothing, Jazzy, Poppy, Thought-Provoking August 28, 2013
By ROTKFan
Format:MP3 Music
Acquired this album the day it came out and have listened to it nearly every day since. With each listen, you'll hear new dynamics, hooks, and layers; you will gain a greater appreciation for how incredibly talented this band is. What I really love about these guys is that they draw a heavy jazz influence and merge it seamlessly into rock/pop (think Steely Dan). The mood throughout the album changes with each song, and the lyrics are written perfectly to match the musical atmosphere for each piece. For anyone who appreciates top-tier musicianship and enjoys bands that are "impossible to categorize", you owe it to yourself to check out The Reign of Kindo. I cannot wait to see them perform live!

Only listened to it once so far, so my opinion is subject to change but I feel "This Is What Happens" is a much better album. Hope things get better.
