Album Review: "Robby Krieger & the Soul Savages" By Robby Krieger (7/10)

 Krieger’s newest jazz-fusion instrumental album with the Soul Savages opens with the funky, prog romp “Shark Skin Suit.” Synths and organs galore, textured production elements throughout, and obviously spearheaded by Krieger’s versatile (often souped-up with effects) guitar, each track is dense with all the “right stuff” to keep pushing the genre and instrument forward. “Contrary Motion” is fun and fast-moving. “Samosas & Kingfishers,” “Killzoni” and “Bouncy Betty” are (excellently titled) self-contained standouts.
