Neo Dada is an album brimming with musical adventure, odd turns, colourful combinations of sounds and instruments, complex signatures and a good portion of pure joy, all mysteriously sugared with melodic hooks that will stick to your brain like any annoying pop tune, but in a good way.
There are elements from the Canterbury and Rock In Opposition scenes and traces of artists such as Frank Zappa, Henry Cow, Magma and Gentle Giant, but Jono has used his time since the previous album well, and taken large steps when it comes to establishing a strong musical signature.
The instrumentations and arrangements are also more adventurous, there are more rock sonics and Jono has succesfully picked up the guitar again.
