The Guitars Unlimited Plus 7- Crazy Rhythm
Another fine album from the Stereo Action series ("the sound your eyes can follow). I could never say that anyone sounds like Esquivel, but stereo mixing-wise, this is similar, groups of sounds drifting between speakers with solo instruments zooming all around. His album "Latin-Esque" was put on by Stereo Action and Crazy Rhythm also utilized two separate groups of musicians recorded in separate studios for maximum stereo separation. They also picked songs to suit this recording and mixing style.
So here we have another wacky collection of pretty corny instrumentals. If the opening track, "Expresso" doesn't win you over, then this may not be the record for you. I do like this record a little more every time I hear it, too. Try through headphones for a weird experience.
Personally, I can't get enough energetic corn music.
