Whew. The name of the record company says it all. At an hour long, this progressive rock project is a real workout, both intellectually and musically. The first of a proposed series from mainman Brad Fenwick, Annuit Corruptus is a maze of lyrics about alienation, aliens and the sinister threats of a world gone mad with the perpetuity of power for the few. At least, thatís what I could discern after a listen to the album and a visit to the website (full lyrics are online). For casual listeners, this isnít the most inviting stuff in the world ó but it is well-considered and its neo-í70s marriage of free-form jazz (replete with sax and flute) and funky rock íní roll can be quite engaging at times.
