Madacy's exhaustive 71-track journey through the extraordinarily diverse Sounds of Planes, Trains and Automobiles makes for a jarring listen. Somewhere in between the barrage of bullets on "Fighter Plane in Action" and the tornadic "Supercharged Chrysler Dragster" is a great record. The sound quality is superb and the pacing is supported by the relatively taut track lengths, but the record's impact is lessened by the violence of its material -- although it really depends on the listener whether or not "Train Leaving Station" conjures tears of joy or a complete emotional shutdown. Other highlights include the relaxing "Horns in Traffic."
