AllMusic Review by

This Boston-based group, founded by singer/songwriter/accordionist Maury Rosenberg, grabs handfuls of different musical styles and splatters them all over its sonic canvas. The result is an intriguing, kaleidoscopic sound with elements of bluegrass, world music, rock, folk, klezmer, and reggae. This hour-long release includes "Bulgarian Boogie," "Rasta Cyborg," "The Feldmans," and the propulsive "Fate." Hypnotic Clambake, which features Darrell Scott (vocals, guitar, banjo) and several other players, mixes wit with wisdom and a sound that can't be pigeonholed.
