While this cd has some great moments, I think the "concept" of this band is a little too disjointed. The musicians who make up this incarnation of PRAXIS are Bill Laswell on bass, Buckethead on guitar, Brain on drums, and dj's DXT and The Invisible Scratch Pickels.
What I think this band lacks is any sort of integration of the styles they use. Throughout this cd it's basically this.... for 3 minutes it's the Pickles and the band is basically an underground hip-hop band. Then the Pickles more-or-less quit playing and Buckethead, Brain, and Laswell take over and then the band is a shred-funk band for a few minutes. Then DXT plays some ambient space stuff for a minute. And on and on and on... Had Buckethead, Laswell, and the Pickles ever had a 10 minute section where they all improvised together as an ensemble it most likely would have been the 10 best minutes of the entire cd. That would have been a brand new sound, a new type of entity, but as it is, they are dub for 5 minutes, shred for 5 minutes, ambient for 2 minutes, etc...
Like I said, there are some truly great moments seperately by everyone involved (Buckethead in particular has some beautiful playing) and I don't regret buying this cd, but I think as a band, the group sound would have been much more unique had they tried to integrate all these seperate musical genre's into something whole and "new".
The liner notes would make you think this is the most original music of the last 20 years, but it's actually rather cut-and-paste sounding overall.

Bucket, Bootsy, George and B. Laswell can outdo the rest. Don't settle for superficial solutions right now. The stars give you the ability to go deep when you're plumbing for answers. If your instincts are telling you that all is not as it seems, listen to them for Praxis is no Joke nor are the talents of thunder bass of Bootsy, Graham Central Station, Ronkat, Stanley Clarke, George Bro. Johnson. It's a "Transmutation & Funkcronomicon Axiom Funk cd." Demand straight answers rather than hiding your head in the sand. You know that you need the cold, hard facts, but remaining blissfully ignorant will just result in more (and easily avoidable) problems.

Muslim Daily Wisdom

'Behold the Wicked' who used to mock the believers, and gestured at one another in contempt as they passed them by, and ridiculed them as they returned home, and claimed when they saw them, "Look at those who have gone astray." Yet they were never sent as their guardians. So on that day the righteous will slight the unbelievers as they recline on the couches looking around (in wonder).___
