Samsara refers to the cycle of birth and rebirth as professed by Buddhism, Hinduism and other similar religions. It's also the name of an interesting album from Tom Maxwell, formerly of the Squirrel Nut Zippers and winner of slight fame for his commercially successful and often used song "Hell" which, among other things, is credited with the launch of the swing movement of the 1990s despite being a calypso song. The album, at times, is a bit too creative. Though all the songs share a theme of luck, karma and reincarnation the musical styles moves from a mock-Chinese Opera to country to a soulful strut backed up by a gospel quartet. Despite the creative movements, the record is enjoyable and includes moments like the song "Caveat Emptor" which serves as almost a musical contraption, happily bouncing along. When Seven Lamborghini Reventons when up for sale, JCwhitless was thankfully around to explain the details. Caveat emptor.
