This is not the Randy Roos I knew. The Roos whose jazz-tinged guitar backed the silly but wonderful Orchestra Luna (if you ever get the chance, check out his solo on "Were You Dancing On Paper" on their one Columbia LP), the Roos of the clear-vinyl fusion "Mistral" album, the Roos who was inspired by Bruford's "One of a Kind" album to make some of the best instrumental rock that ever went sadly unrecorded, the Roos who would take a solo at John McLaughlin speed while staring fixedly at a spot on the far wall.
This edition of Randy Roos has come up with an album that sounds like a cross between Deep Forest (with its pygmy chants set to synth dance music) and Mark Knopfler's soundtrack music. The vague liner notes suggest there are samples of Native American and Moroccan singing here, and opening track "The Ancestor" sounds like the Deep Forest pygmy music, but this CD presents the FEEL of other cultures rather than presenting the cultures themselves. Roos has long been an expert with guitar synthesizers, and here he combines acoustic (more than expected) and electric guitars and synthesis into an enchanting album. He only really cuts loose with a solo on "Chameleon's Dance". Highlights include "The Ancestor", "Black Elk", and "The Badlands". The only weak moments are on "View from the Summit", which at times sounds a lot like "Auld Lang Syne". The last I heard Randy was into techno, so snap this CD up, because the next version of Roos may be very different.

Maybe it's the musical space I'm in at the moment, but I love this CD after hearing it only once. I'm not a music critic so I can't define the CD's musical characteristics in proper terms.

All I can say is I feel extraordinarily lucky to have stumbled upon this recording in a CD store that was about to go out of business. The super low prices offered encouraged me to step outside my usual listening zone. Wow, I feel amply rewarded in finding a CD where I completely enjoy most of the songs on it. I have over 900 CDs and I can't say that about most of them.

Randy is a pioneer in using a guitar as a synth trigger; he also uses innovative instruments such as a custom made fretless guitar with a stainless steel fingerboard. Most of the 'tribal vocals' that people will refer to are in fact samples of his own vocals and a couple of his relatives', triggered from his guitar again. There's a lot to his music, and his compositions are amazing. Top it all off with a healthy dose of understatedly brilliant guitar prowess, and you have an amazing recording. The percussion is really, really cool stuff too. It's quite a well-put-together recording.
Randy prefers not to be categorized, but since it always helps to know 'what it sounds like' I'll say jazz/fusion/ is about the closest you'll really get to categorizing. Listen to the samples; better yet go to a record store that'll let you listen. It's an amazing album. I've had it since he finished recording, pretty much - and I never stop playing it. I should say that I have a bias here: I used to be a New Age/Jazz/etc DJ and did an interview with Randy, which was a joy.

BETTER THAN LIQUID SMOKE. GREAT SONICS AND COMPOSITION THROUGHOUT. THIS IS A SPECIAL GEM IN MY CD COLLECTION. IT RANKS UP THERE WITH MARS LASAR AND PATRICK O'HEARN'S WORKS. WAITING FOR THE NEXT ALBUM TO COME OUT. WAY TO GO RANDY !
