While Earth Tribe Rhythms, the debut drumming release by Brent Lewis, was a rollicking good time from start to finish, the varying tempos and directions he has relentlessly provided on The Primitive Truth offer a brand new feast. He leaps forward into "Wall of Drums," working out on wild rhythms in a Mickey Hart vein. "Dance of the Martian Drum Warriors" is quirky and downright devious in its loping tempo, inviting visions of dancing cartoon dreams of skeletons and fiendish but friendly aliens in their full glory. The variety of his cultural influences adds to the effectiveness of these new "Earth Tribe Rhythms," promising hours of exciting listening and entertainment.
