    Brilliant!! Dave King,drummer of the bad plus is an the most innovative drummers since Brian Blade.Worth checking out becase of king alone. It also has the hippest version of Iron man. Run to the record store and buy it now.

    The Bad Plus have released another intensely satisfying journey through foreign soundscapes. The group's ability to perform as one instrument with one voice and instantly explode into a wall of sound is fantastic. Open your mind and let the rhythms sink in. This album is a gold mine of new sounds and rhythms wedded gracefully with ones familiar.

  1. Like its predecessor, Give is edgy, irreverent, and yes, fun.

    There are eight originals seething with funky new millennium rhythms and succulent harmonic flights. [19 Mar 2004, p.65]

    It's perhaps a tad effortful here and there, but it's gloriously impolite. [Apr 2004, p.113]
