"From the opener, "Hurricane Point," you're reminded of the Betty Davis quote from the 1950s movie All About Eve, "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night." Morris' guitar shreds notes against the wall of rumbling bass and crush of battered drums. This opening salvo signals a take-no-prisoners session, or what Myles Boisen of Splatter Trio used to call, "club clearing music.


As intense as it is, the inner workings retain the undiluted Joe Morris guitar sound. His unique "language" persists here, it's just that he has turned his amp knob to max. The tracks remind us of Derek Bailey's experiments with drum 'n' bass. Like Bailey, the hardcore aspects may draw you in, but if you stay, it's for the musicianship.
Imagine Joe Morris playing with Napalm Death and you get an idea where we are.

Morris fevered guitar on "Red Vision" invites Cretella to pattern his notes on the same pursuit and Parmelee's drums give chase, too. This version of fast and furious leads to an exhausting endpoint. Finally, after six exhausting tracks and nearly one hour of music, "Lift" opens with a quiet drum solo and some intricate scattered bass (with thunder intact), then Morris perambulates his guitar over the lumpy terrain, precipitating sparks of energy and inciting his trio into a tsunami of sound. Glorious sound."
