The Review:

Unicorn Record put out yet another great fusion CD. Addison Project, lead by bassist Richard Addison, brings jazz-fusion into the modern age with some sampling and metallic guitars.

Mood Swings is the instrumental debut cd by Addison Project and is chockful of infectious bass grooves without becoming a vehicle for Richard to do a wankfest.

Some songs are gems especially the last track "Controlled Freedom" which sounds like it could be in the end credits for a film.

I have to be honest here. I generally don't listen to much fusion so I can't make proper comparisons but I can say there is some very well structured songs and interplay between the instrumentalists.

So in closing, I will recommend this to everyone that's into good instrumental based music.
