CD Review of Before the World
From Scene and Heard, July/August 2002

Caveman - Before the World

Ambitious is Before the World. Filled with a plethora of musical styles and movements, this album plays out like a journey into the heart of human existence. Pretty bold for a group of Americans in their early twenties. Relying on a jazz background and a love for musical genres ranging from funk/jam based to tribal world-influenced, these young men have taken bold steps to forge original ground here. Although it would be easy to kick out a few groovy jams and just coast on the wave, these cavemen have instead created a dense composition consisting of tight arrangements and a wide range of time signatures. By using the template of improvisational music as a way of tapping into the moods of men of a distant age, this album provides a wild emotional ride. Drummer Tim Keiper's ability to add accentuations when necessary definitely stands out while guitarist John Lee's range of playing styles astounds. Caveman has no bounds to its development. It can and will expand much like primitive man has. Their next journey will definitely not resemble their first, and I look forward to traveling with them. (Stuart Reed)

Musical Genius
The CD came to me fast and in great condition. I bought it as a birthday present for my boyfriend and the same day I got it in the mail I went to see Caveman preform. I don't think a person can understand how complicated the music is until you see it in person. All the musicians are pure geniuses who are experts at what they do. I was blown away, I used to be a music major and I know how hard that music is. The CD has a great sound and this site made it so easy to get any info I needed. Thanks a ton and a half!!!!

Caveman creates improvisational instrumentations that are evolutionary! They meld rock, jazz, the blues, tribal and world sounds into mystical music. Their CD is filled with intricate arrangements, masterful instrumentation, varied tempos, diversity and polished techniques. They are musical shamans telling tales about Native Americans, the environment and universal themes. Their songs range from festive to dark, primal to complex, solemn to joyful. This eighteen-track collection is psychedelic, raw, layered and sublime all at the same time. Caveman is a unique band of talented players creating soundscapes that are revolutionary!
