Modern Drummer: March 2004
GLOBALPOSITIONINGRECORD
Rated
3 out of 5 
From the opening beats of "Shant," GLOBALPOSITIONINGRECORD sounds like a wheel is about to fall off and a gear is sticking. And it grooves like mad. This band digs in at the plate --they don't always hit the ball out of the park, but they take a big rip at it. The trio isn't always in a hurry to move on from a good thing, either, which is also nice. Drummer Ilya Stemkovsky drives over the clever changes of "Discrepancy" with a straightforward groove, waiting until the end to drop a huge fill. He plays it straight and funky on the highly syncopated "L," hands loose, big and quick too. Be alert for the rocking hidden track, a popular, well-chosen cover.
