“A bassist for all seasons, Sydney's Mark Costa was a resident on Australian Idol for seven years. Having escaped the clutches of innumerable shrieking larynxes, he has penned all the tunes on this very attractive album of fusion music, with guitarist James Muller, keyboards ace Bill Risby, drummer Gordon Rytmeister and percussionist Tony Azzopardi. Driving funk and rock feels give way to more lyrical pieces, so the album lives up to its title and handsomely escapes the flaw of some fusion: heard one track, heard 'em all. There is a special magic about the fiery imagination behind all the Muller solos. Hear them do it live at the Basement on Wednesday (March 2, 2011). 3 and a half out of 5 stars. ”
