CD REVIEW: Terry Bozzio & Billy Sheehan - Nine Short Films
By Ben Ohmart - 10/10/2002 - 03:29 PM EDT

Artist: Terry Bozzio & Billy Sheehan
Album: Nine Short Films
CD Review: This is one of Bozzioís most vocal albums ever. He does all drums, vocals, lyrics, keys and various guitar-like synth solos, and percussion. While Billy Sheehan is enveloped in all basses, baritone guitars, and lead guitar solo on ĎEdge of a Circle.í

Itís been a while since Iíve heard Bozzio vocals, and maybe itís this October month (no, itís not) but the man is trying to scare us all, right from track one.

Song List
1. Live By The Gun
2. Black Wisdom
3. Water & Blood
4. Tornado Alley
5. Distant Horses
6. One More Winter
7. Edge Of A Circle
8. Finger Painting
9. Last Page, The
10. Sub Continent

It is a fascinating journey through progressive rock, just one more in an already prolific Bozzio career (not counting the Zappa years even). Itís also another clean, rigorous and bitchiní entry in the already stuffed Magna Carta catalog. A catalog which is dedicated to progressing the dark, hard rock nature of prog rock. And the fact that these large-length tracks are 10 in number and not 9 shows you just what sort of ultimate, deep-rooted perversion youíre dealing with. Youíll dress up the week after Halloween, walk the streets, turn on the tunes and love them.
