...and all of their other songs =)

interesting note, the creative mind behind AAL, Tosin Abasi, is in a jazz fusion-y supergroup with Adrian Terrazas

love this stuff but I often find myself wishing it had more of a cohesive structure and solid songwriting, you know something you can sink your teeth into. It's a lot like old jazz in that respect, can get shreddy and boring at times. He's got another project that's worth looking into can't remember the name of it right now

I've only followed AaL fairly loosely, but I think the new album is probably their best. Weightless, and to a lesser extent the debut are too samey for me- Tosin's got a great, unique style but it was mostly employed in the same way over and over again. This album brings the diversity they needed.

Animals As Leaders and TesseracT are currently one of my favourite bands. They've been touring with Leprous and Protest The Hero too. I would love to see any of these bands coming to Argentina soon.

 

Tosin Abasi will be doing a clinic next month, I'll probably go.

so i didn't see a thread anywhere on here about this
it might be further back, but I didn't feel like going too far
but what are your thoughts on Animals as Leaders

to those of you who are not familiar, check out
-CAFO
-Song of Solomon
-Wave of Babies
-Do Not Go Gently
-Cylindrical Sea

Those are really some of my favourites. The opening track from the first album is also amazing. Their second album is pretty balanced, all the songs are awesome. And the new one too.
