CH i must admit now that i collect hendrix covers. his material is SO strong that there are many, and very few really ones. this is one of the best ever. these tracks are hot, and strange, and beautiful, and strong, yet essentially faithful in a colorful way. magical workings! Favorite track: Fire.

Nick Bradey Interesting and fascinating album - a definite
original new take on Hendrix. It would be great to have a second set , with long stretched out versions, all longer than 10 minutes. Favorite track: Burning Of The Midnight Lamp.

The inspiration and true feeling within each of the tracks covered is taken to a new level - the direction being just perhaps interpreted differently.

But it's the real thing. Favorite track: Voodoo Chile.

pushtree just came across this as I'm always looking for new interpretations of rock classics, especially Hendrix. hearing this set I can close my eyes and imagine, if Jimi was still alive, this is what he'd sound like.

Carsten Pieper This is definitely the least Hendrix-by-numbers tribute I ever heard. The Belgian-American trio came up with something very special. The ingredients may come from all corners of Rock's big cuisine but the result has clearly written Jazz on it. Which means, that it can take some time to recognize the songs ;-}
Fascinationg stuff! Favorite track: Little Wing.

about

MACHINE MASS
Plays Hendrix

Augmented by the addition of the otherworldly talents of young maestro keyboardist, Antoine Guenet (The Wrong Object; Sh.TG.N; Univers Zero), fellow sonic adventurers -- and Machine Mass founders -- guitarist Michel Delville (The Wrong Object; douBt; Alex Maguire Sextet) and drummer Anthony Bianco (douBt; Elton Dean; Dave Liebman) combine forces to steam through a set which provides a refreshing retake of some of the most influential psychedelic rock classics from the '60's that changed the face of music! While the songs reference frameworks familiar to most classic rock aficionados, the comparisons end there: the trio follows flight plans which are uniquely their own, achieving moments stunningly fresh, instinctive, profound and moving. The addition of piano and keyboards to the tracks provides a welcome approach, imploring reharmonizations as well as complete revisions many hipsters, both young and old, will revel in!

In typical Machine Mass fashion, the music thumbs its nose at convention and is unapologetically uninhibited in its delivery. The group pushes boundaries on all front, producing a record that is as fascinating from a tonal / textural perspective as it is from the 'harmonic rethink' and the mass of corporate liberties taken within the song structures, respectively.

Machine Mass' "Plays Hendrix" is an engrossing, brilliantly conceived retake on some of rock's most adventurous classic moments; a quintessential album for fans of rock, psychedelic and progressive, alike.
