Thi, by far, is one of the best albums of 2012. At first, Robert Glasper's "Black Radio" owned this title, but "Groundup" is it's only competition. The mere fact that SP continually defies the "less is more" conventional wisdom is a testament to their musicality(and this record is no exception). But, what makes this album standout is the fact that musicality comes from the "core" musicians:Mike League, "The Robert 'Sput' Searight", Shaun "88 Fingers" MArtin, and others don't have to rely on guest musicians to push the material, but the added components are just icing on the bomb birthday cake. Eight tracks of pure eargasm

I'm a music snob. I've played professionally for 17 years. I have a MM in performance from a pretty good school. Having said that, this album and these guys are absolutely perfect. Everybody plays their faces off, the writing is both smart and playful, and it makes me love being a fan again.

Creative, energetic, humble. You can watch the recording of this album on Youtube and see the passion and attention that this "collective" of musicians have for music. Great start for anyone trying to find today's "jazz" or is new to Snarky Puppy.

Snarky Puppy is one of those groups that instantly grabs your attention. groundUP does a good job of capturing their musical prowess and expansive creativity. For an added treat, be sure to check out the videos from the recording sessions; it's amazing to see theses guys in action. I'd love to see them live in the future!

This is great music. The band is so tight, the rhythms are so refreshingly original. These guys are incredibly musically intelligent, and they love what they do. Snarky Puppy stands out with all kinds of fresh flavor in what has increasingly become a bland, vanilla music industry.

Snarky Puppy is an amazing ensemble of young talented musicians. I would strongly recommend buying this album and all of their others that are available. This music will set well with anyone looking for an amazing fusion jazz project or someone just trying to find something new. I find myself listening to alot of their tracks over and over again trying to gage the depth and complexity of their 'off-set' rythems. Overall the quality is suburb, well beyond the processed noise my generation is now all too well accustomed to. Their songs are each vibrantly unique, leaving you with a since of urgency towards the next track while still systematically trying to digest the previous track. Well worth the money! If you're not a fan?, listen to a track and believe me, you will be!

Truly enjoyed it. Appears to be combined with some hard rock and jazz.

Super tight, original, exciting. Great take on jazz fusion. I saw these guys live at Berklee and they KILLED it. Highly recommend.
