Editor's note: while I've seen reviews of the album comparing it to traditional African or Japanese drumming, to me it's just bad ass drumming. That it's done to J. S. Bach's music makes it that much more cool. I know me some Bach but this is pretty indistinguishable to me. I mean, it doesn't sound like Bach but that really is the whole reason why it's good for the most part. I mean, whoopdee frickin' doo for Bach, eh?
