Endless Boogie play endless Boogie. In this case, 79 minutes and 44 seconds. So "Long Island" is pushing the capacities of a CD to the limit. The quartet from New York is consistent in their approach and doesn't care about gimmicks, but looks for the groove in every track, finds it, hits bass and guitar riffs over it and of course solos, solos, solos. In each of the eight new pieces, Endless Boogie plays itself into ecstasy. Here it doesn't depend on vocals anymore (which there are, in "The Artemus Ward" even as brittle chanting). Also the violin-like guitar in "Occult Banker" is only a side note. Rock, jam, boogie - the rhythm is literally celebrated, the guitar solo is lifted to the Olympus. The change consists in the change of the volume and in occasional variation of the tempo. This is usually predictable down to the last detail, but it is also made famous down to the last detail. Innovations can be taken care of by others, guitar solos by Endless Boogie. So many rock clichés are allowed.
