»MESSING« is a courageous statement that rejects straightforward pop and instead shines with artistic freedom and the will for change. The metal, the brass, always reverberates, at times mercilessly pounding on us, driving us forward, resonating. An artistically valuable and independent work by one of the most remarkable drummers of these times.
This Austrian jazz quartet surprised me a lot.They are extraordinary and innovative.
This album is very complicated. The influences of avant-prog, prog-rock, industrial & cinematic dark ambient are not so important, than the amasing way of using sounds & rhythms, the way of connecting musical phrases into the pieces and the pieces into the whole album. Every sound becomes important here.
For sure, this is a breath-taking futuristic story of the life of Melancholy Robots from another planet! Olga Kivius
