Joboj - Orange Orange, the second full-length album by guitarist, writer, and multi-instrumentalist Joboj, is a noisy mixture of influences metal, funk, and just plain weird, in a strange style not unlike Zappa. Instrumental rock is extremely difficult to keep truly original and engaging. Joboj's songwriting is so chaotic and scattered that it remains both original and engaging, even if mainly for the curiosity of seeing where he will go next. The most interesting songs combine different styles, like funk and shred in both "Throw Down a Mountain" and "Pooper." The arpeggiated acoustic guitar on "Sleeping" and "Chameleon" is a bright contrast to the strident feedback and chaotic riffing. Joboj uses chromatic chord progressions often, for an odd, shifty tonality that fits his sense of composition and melody. The playing is quirkily entertaining and effectively communicates Joboj's twisted vision. He can shred with imagination and he's not afraid to play slow and melodic. Orange stands out from the instrumental guitar pack due to the unbridled creativity of Joboj. Reviewed by Scott Andrews
