Anyone who wanted
to see Carlos get
back to what he does
gutsy, ballsy lines
with no concerns about pop stardom—is
going to love this. The tones, the parts, and
the attitude are all old-school Carlos and
the dude is killing! He’s soulful, thoughtful,
sweet, mean, touching, and dangerous—
sometimes all in the same song. There is
only one Carlos! Starfaith.
Stern brings it on this
latest release, with
his slinky phrasing,
cool chorused tone,
and deep pocket. He
executes gorgeous unison lines with the
saxes on “AJ” before launching into an
angular solo. He rocks a 3-string n’goni
on “Out of the Blue,” plays Danny Elfmanesque
quirkiness on “OCD,” and dishes
out badass future funk on the title track.
For such a nice guy he sure is a bad mofo.
Heads Up International.
It’s rare that such a
great message for the
kids is accompanied
by such cool guitar
work, but Schnick Von Schlutzzz (not his
real name) and Bill “Hundred Dollar” Rollins
somehow pull it off. They chop up
hip rhythm lines and agitated leads on
“The Drip,” throw down a sinewy dirge
in “Out of My Hands” that could make
Nancy Reagan bump and grind, and get
all crashed and despondent on “Garbage
Bags and Shovels.” No cocaine was wasted
in the making of this album. Reversed.
