Is anyone else majorly disappointed by this album? I remember first hearing "S.L.M.J." three years ago and being blown away. I couldn't wait to check out the rest of the album.

When I did though, I only enjoyed half of one other track, and the rest just wasn't catchy or memorable at all. Probably the biggest disappointment I've ever had trying a new album based on the expectations I had off that one track. I really should listen to it again though, just to make sure my tastes haven't changed.

Zuntata can pretty much endlessly remake each song and have each version sound really different. If you like a certain song, you really do have to try out the whole crapload of the styles they've played it in, and then stick with the version you like best..

Also, even a 97 live song can sound very different from their 93 or 98 live versions of the same song. Sometimes they'll have like 5 different arranges and 3 different live versions as well as the original, so just try as many as you can to find the version you like best for each title.

For S.L.M.J., it's a combo of "Sublime Landscape" and "Midnight Jungling" from the Landing Gear/Side by Side album, ZTTL-0006, so you might want to give that disc a spin. And since it's by Shuichiro 'Shu' Nakazawa, give the "Zuntata Rare Selection 3 - S'WORK'S" album a listen since that's all works by Shu as well.

Not me! Besides the atrocious narrator, I like every rendition here. My personal favorite is Grid Seeker.
