Sonic Liberation Front - Changeovertime - ***

Four percussionists, three horns, bass and guitar is a line-up which says it all. Rhythms galore! Especially afro-cuban rhythms, with vocals in the yoruba language from West-Africa in a few songs. The music is pleasant to the ear, the soloists are more than just good. The only downside is that we've kind of heard the same thing on their previous releases. Their first album "Water & Stones" is still their best. There isn't enough variety in the music to keep things interesting and the compositions are too flat to encourage repeated listenings. A little more adventure would have been welcome.
