Great guitar playing
I am not the type to write an indepth review for an album track by track but I will say that i honestly enjoyed this CD! It has some great guitar playing and the overall effect you get from the album is nothing but unique energy. This is one you should check out if you're into real musicians who play interesting creative pieces.

Downtown Music Gellery review

Both Eyal's guitar and Medeski's organ sound superb wailing together, fat, funky
A breakthrough release from this young Israeli guitarist who has been living in New York since 1999. Featuring a spectacular ensemble of downtown superstars, the music is a raging rock/jazz fusion touching upon Tony Williams Lifetime, John Zorn's Masada, Medeski Martin and Wood, Marc Ribot's Shrek and more. Dynamic new compositions and spectacular playing make this a CD you will enjoy anytime and anywhere. Tzadik is proud to introduce you to this exciting new guitarist via the historic catalog of Radical Jewish Culture. Ecstatic music for a new generation keep your eyes and ears on this guy. It featuries Eyal Maoz on electric guitar and all compositions, John Medeski on organ, Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz on electric & acoustic basses and Ben Perowsky on drums. I've been checking out the Israeli guitar wiz Eyal Maoz since he moved here from his school years in Boston and played here at DMG in a trio with Okkyung Lee and Daniel Kelly. He is/was a member of the Lemon Juice Quartet, who had a couple of fine self-produced discs out. 'Edom' is his first effort as a leader and he has put together a marvelous downtown all-star quartet. In a number of ways Eyal's quartet sound like Electric Masada and of course does include three players who have all worked with John Zorn in different versions of Masada. Even Eyal's great, groovy melodies are along the same lines of middle-eastern jazz/rock. The quartet often sound like they are picking up where the original Tony Williams Lifetime left off (w/ John McLaughlin & Larry Young). Both Eyal's guitar and Medeski's organ sound superb wailing together, fat, funky and rocking hard. Eyal has also picked the perfect rhythm team to hold it down just right. From the sly, sublime and haunting melody of "Deep", with an enchanting acoustic bass solo from Shanir to grand jazz/rocking blast of "Chita" with an inspired solo Medeski on organ, these guys mean business. Turn it up and get down! Over an hour long and righteous throughout!" - BLG
