Hehe, i kinda know what you mean about speedy jazzwank but the MO are one of the few bands i can take it from. In fact, the more they trade solos and the more excessive those solos become the more i actually like it. If i thought they were just showing off for the sake of it i'd hate them too, but for me, they're like those Whirling Dervish Dancers using their chosen medium to gain some kinda personal enlightenment ( and as a listener i do find them somewhat transcendental myself ).

Just like Gong really ;-)

Yes, they do it for me in that way too. I often find myself luxuriating in the dizzying talent on display. I'm not fond of tuneless virtuosity by any means but I think MO have some lovely tunes to hang their wizardry on. I like the dynamics on offer - from ear shredding madness to brain caressing gentleness. Works for me anyhoo x
