MC Maguire: Trash of Civilizations (Innova)
Label: Innova    
Released in: USA    

"Back with more maximalist, over the top, genre-defying, electro-medleys, MC Maguire's new aural behemoths are just in time for those addicted to serious, sensory overload. Unhinged from a classical/electro-acoustic trajectory, Maguire's music has veered off into the ether of ethno/prog-alt rock/jazz/electronica. This po-mo hybrid usually consists of long concertos for live players with a dense, 300 track, multi-layered electronic accompiament. The new CD is no exception, consisting of two double concertos featuring four uber-virtuosic musicians, blasting through mind-numbing machinations and/or tempos. The first tune, 'The Spawn of Abe'(28:11) jams on a mid-eastern flavoured, apocalyptic clash of the 3 monotheistic religions, while 'Narcissus auf Bali' (39:53) grooves out on the Greek myth of Narcissus and Echo romping through the jungles of Bali."-Innova
