Limited 25th anniversary edition on transparent yellow vinyl of Don Caballero's third album, What Burns Never Returns (Originally released in 1998, Touch and Go Records). "Yet another testament of pure musical genius from the wizards of Don Caballero. This album - probably their greatest effort to date and a keystone instrumental album - will make musicians stand open-mouthed in absolute amazement, wondering just how such music is written. " - Allmusic. Com "As the purveyor of brainy, muscular instrumental rock, Don Caballero spent most of it's early years labeled the "Geeks from Pittsburgh who don't sing. " Now that the rest of the indie-rock world has warmed up to instrumental rock (see the popularity of Tortoise, et al. ), Don Caballero reemerges from hiatus with it's third full-length, What Burns Never Returns. Staying ahead of the learning curve, the band employs little of the muscle that marked it's earlier efforts, instead adopting a more highbrow, abstract approach to it's music making. The band is not improvising per se, but creating meticulously arranged, post-Kind Crimson-like songs that attack odd time signatures. Stunning in it's acrobatic musicianship, intriguing in it's relentless experimentalism, What Burns... is indeed a welcome return. " - Tad Hendrickson, CMJ New Music Report, 1998
