This review is excerpted from Clayton's July 5, 2004 The Prog Life column found here -ed.

This collection features a half-and-half mix of cover tunes and original compositions, mostly instrumental. A few vocals pop up here and there, but not enough to warrant a rating for vocals. (I will say, however, that female vocalist Temple Passmore?s performance on the Men at Work cover "Down Under" is terrific.) Lots of interesting arrangements here, but not particularly proggy, unless you count fusion as prog. Prog nuts might enjoy this, though, thanks to the creative arrangements and lengthy instrumental passages. In addition, many musical styles crawl from the digital 0s and 1s here, although jazz seems to be the group's first love. The recording and production are spectacular; I shudder to think what this puppy?s studio bill came to! The packaging, too, is fully professional.

Down Under (3:59) / Ghost Town (5:15) / Groove Messenger (The Story Of Jazztronica) / Cheesefrog Funk Prelude (0:59) / Jamband Express (5:38) / One Thing Leads To Another (4:53) / Cheesefrog Funk (4:03) / Rain Dance (3:07) / Here We Go (0:36) / Creatures Of Conscience (6:38) / Datz It (5:49) / Herbie (5:36) / Cheesefrog Funk Reprise (0:50) / Heavy Things (3:28) / Pause #5 (Pause For Peace) (1:58)
