With "Dr. Doom," drummer Tim Kuhl takes a page out of the latter-years John Coltrane playbook, where a theme is poked and prodded until every last drop of juice has been rendered. "Dr. Doom" reminds my ears of a modern-day "Afro-Blue," with slight alterations in the head being extracted by virtue of an ensemble that's got some true big-ears interplay going. The playful interactions between Nir Felder's guitar and Rick Parker's trombone are particularly noteworthy. Oh right...and then there's Tim Kuhl's nonstop pulse full of swing.
