Double vinyl LP pressing. 2009 album from the Alt-Rock quartet. The songs that make up Mandala highlight a more rock-oriented four-piece, scaling down the use of horns to create a new twist to their constantly evolving dynamic. That focus is illustrated further by the evocative artwork designed by visual artist Sonny Kay. in an age where taking risks and being fearless can make or break you, RX have emerged as a tidal wave, a force that shatters all the boundaries set against them. Over their decade long career, the band have drawn from numerous genres including Prog, Punk and Rock to Reggae and the Blues; reinventing and revolutionizing their persona while retaining their socially conscious lyrics and bravado instrumentation that have kept each musical progression unmistakable RX. This concept has been the catalyst for the band's ever-growing fanbase, which revels in their uniqueness and continue to storm their celebrated, incendiary live shows.

Top Customer Reviews
In a few moments we will begin our descent into the city of Prog. Before doing so, I want to thank you for choosing Genius Air for your travel from Ska City to Prog.
For those of you on the left side of the plane, you should be able to spot The Mars Volta. This landmark is known to be slightly manic and not for everyone.
If you look out the right side, you will see the lesser known, but more accessible Grüvis Malt. This landmark is known to be a little more relaxed--a good primer for those that are new to the city of Prog!
We will be touching down near the middle of these landmarks, so please take this opportunity to familiarize yourself with your surroundings.
On behalf of all of my crew, whether your sonic journey ends in Prog or is only one stop, thank you again for traveling Genius Air.
As a whole this album is as cohesive as Dark Side of the Moon. The songs are perfectly ordered and seamlessly blend together from track to track.
What really makes this album great however is the production. This is not a click track band, everything you hear in terms of the basic song framework was recorded live to analog tape. Even if they just added the vocals and a few overdubs on top of the live recorded guitar, bass, drums and keyboard this album would be amazing... but they didn't... they kept going.
This album is filled with so much ambiance that it creates a world of it's own, you can listen to 100 times and you'll hear something new every time.
If you are a music junkie you will love this, and if you're a REAL music junkie you'll want to pick it up on vinyl to enjoy the full effect of this masterpiece.
And since this band is doing things on their own without a major record label, almost all of the money you spend on their music will go directly to putting food in their mouths... You can't beat that!
