Artist: Revolution
Title: The Last Revelation
Label: Springboard Music (www.springbound.com)
Genre: Rock/Experimental, Fusion, Funk, Progressive

Are you tired of the same old shit different day type of music? Music like that does not even make it to the third track in my stereo; it gets the heave ho pronto. Do I have something to fix that, it is a band called Revolution lead by artist/musician/author Ben Harris. The band is an underground music project that is in constant rotation and evolution via artists input from all over the country. The band is not the only thing that is a unique concept; the way that they put all the music together is different as well. Everyone participates by sending files back and forth over the internet and exchanging ideas. Welcome to 2003 and the advanced technologies embraced by independent artists.

The Last Revelation may be your first after you listen to this CD. The first requirement before listening to this music is that you have a high tolerance for change and off beat vocals with odd time signatures enhanced by every instrument you could possibly imagine. In total, every song sounds like a musical patchwork quilt, as it should because so many different artists (i.e. 25 to 30 drummers, 15 to 20 bassist) contribute. What I am in awe of is how this recording was eventually arranged to make any sense or maintain a semblance of rhythm and order. Much to my surprise, it does on more than one occasion during the course of this album.

Harris sounds similar to Lou Reed and because of that, it made listening to him that much more difficult, coupled with the fact that this is music off the beaten path. He must have a copy of Metal Machine Music in his collection and was inspired at some point with the sheer madness of that recording. I have to warn you, this music takes a little getting used to and you may need some time to reflect upon it all before you decide to give it a spin again. It is surely worth checking out regardless of the intensity and how much different it will be than anything you have ever heard before, but then again, that is what makes it appealing to begin with.
