Track by Track Review
"Missing" is simply excellent. A slow "Harlem Nocturne" backtrack, and an excellent rhythm guitar under a very sad lead with tribal drums make this a very unusual track. It's well arranged and shimmering with atmosphere. Essential!
Eerie tremolo and tribal drums, with a spooky, call and response duet between echoed guitar and fiercely whistling organ. Odd in some ways, but mostly "Breakout" is downright disturbed. A line or two in low-E with surf tone connects the dots.
