"Feast of Fools"
Feast of Fools is the third album from the San Diego based worldbeat group Burning Bridges. Sixteen tunes ranging from African to Mid-Eastern, ambient to Carribean and Celtic to bluesrock make up their newest global exploration. Like their second album, From Benny's Tiki Room And Ammo Dump (ALP002), which was picked as a CMJ Jackpot! and landed them on the cover of Billboard, this collection of "inauthentic music from around the world" showcases the band's collective influences and individual talents.
"'World beat' is almost too constrictive a concept to contain this San Diego band's global goulash of rhythms and instrumentation"
- James Hebert, San Diego Union Tribune
"...tasty stew of various worldly styles."
- j poet, Rhythm Music
"In their unique mix of world beat and rock the band excels on guitar driven afro-poppy tunes..."
- Texas Beat
"...if you like your rock with a little international flair, these guys can be your tour guide."
- Musician's Trade Journal
