A sign that you’ve written a good instrumental is when, at first taste, the average music listener doesn’t aurally fade away from boredom. Jazz music has been replaced with commercially produced regurgitated crap where bands see how many different ways they can write a song with the same I-V-VI-IV progression. Bands like this do well because this modern sound is easy to understand to the untrained ear. So, when you can encapsulate someone’s attention without having to shake your ass or become a musical whore to the latest trend, you're doing something right.
Mo’Fone gently guides you with a musical compass that points to a land of Funk and Groove with the build up of “Say What.” Thirty seconds later you're knee-deep into a melody so catchy lyrics would just get in the way.
The complex intro for “Sling Shot” makes you feel like you’re listening to two complimenting melody lines at the same time.
“Rock of Ages” starts off with a feel of a Louisiana style dirge. Then, before you can feel the pain, an upbeat dixieland style bounce brings a warm glow to light up the moment. Some say that they don’t want their funeral to be a depressing event, but they want it to be a party. This song seems to be the very definition of that sentiment.
