  1. A jam band to the core, they don't craft their "songs" any more cunningly, but the effect is more song-like. Then, after 52 minutes, there's an unbuzzy finale: four minutes of acoustic likembe and aged voice which I call a coda and you may call a bore. To my medium-fi ears, this is where to begin.
  2. For fans, Assume Crash Position is a necessary addition to the catalog. For the intrigued, this is an excellent starting point.
  3. Assume Crash Position doesn't have the immediate impact of Congotronics, but it shows Konono are still morphing and innovating, led by a spirit of discovery--and whatever they find and pick up along the way.
