Jazzy math rock metal. We're on shaky ground here. This is a genre that polarises me (hell, even some of the bands polarise me) and falls into two camps; either I 'get it' and can appreciate the tunes in the same way that I'll happily listen to John Coltrane if Iím in the mood, or it makes me want to block my ears with wet tampons. Thankfully, Organ are just on the right side of interesting. It's not something I'll ever listen to in heavy rotation and, I guess, that's not necessarily the point. This is for those occasional moments when all you want to hear is something a little less safe than verse-chorus-rinse-repeat. It's surprisingly melodic and upbeat too. Except for track two, which is a tiresome dirge. But, two good tunes out of three should give us an easy score out of ten. But, the other two tunes are so good, that I can forgive track two's nonsense and illegitimacy. Fans of brief bursts of crazy diversity in life, give this a go; you won't be disappointed, and the ride is short. Fans of basic mathematics can otherwise baulk at my score not making sense.
