Not a return to form so much as complete re-conception and, with Joe Yamanaka's recent passing, finale. Folks looking for Satori TNG will be disappointed, n dat a shame. This new/closing chapter reveals a powerful, subtle unit taking equal parts psych rock, tropicalia, classic soul, reggae, New Orleans funk and nudging these forms into flexible, extended jams. Dark apocalyptic rage of old replaced with direct, clear eyed confidence.
