Another electrifying burst of marching musical shrapnel by MSU College of Music’s Jon Weber, X goes the extra mile in delivering more notes per square inch than … well, than a lot of other battery jams out there! The intro sets the tone with a giant, earth-shaking roll followed by a deceleration, an acceleration, and finally a blazing fast tap-roll sequence … and that’s just the first 30 seconds! What follows is a twisting, turning, rapidly changing landscape of shifting time signatures, metric modulations, grooves, and LOTS of features for every section.
Weber has outdone himself again! X is on par with the most sophisticated writing on the scene today.
