Drummer extraordinaire Xavi Reija gathered together some of his friends (Tony Levin, Markus Reuter, Dusan Jevtovic) for his latest album, "The Sound Of The Earth." Once again this band look to break the mold of instrumental rock music, beginning with the exciting, rhythm fueled "Deep Ocean" and the nearly ten-minute ambient epic "The Sound Of The Earth." Levin's bass leads the way on the interesting, off-pace tempo of "From Darkness," before the twelve-minute soundscape clash of "The Sound Of The Earth II," which combines elements of jazz and rock to make this a musical masterpiece. After the quietness of "Serenity," Xavi Reija and his band finish up his new album with the subtle, yet emotional feel of "Lovely Place" and a return to rock on the build-up of "Take A Walk."
