The Joy of Motion. Your Rating. Overview . The Joy of Motion is easily distinguishable from Animals As Leaders' last two albums for a few reasons. First of all, this is the first AAL album with Matt Garstka on drums instead of Navene Koperweis. Matt and Navene are both amazing, but they have VERY different styles. Matt has an extensive background in Gospel and Jazz and this translates beautifully into his work for this album. Auf alle Fälle ist THE JOY OF MOTION ein Album mit Suchtfaktor und ein musikalisches Meisterwerk, das wohl nur schwerlich übertroffen werden kann. Ganz klare Empfehlung - für mich ist es jetzt schon das Album 2014 PS. The Joy of Motion Complete Guitar Transcription PDF's, GPX, WAVs. Quick View. The Joy of Motion Practice Tracks.

If you have an extra Gatefold for this variant message me. I have a seam split I can't live with!
Same here, mine came sealed with the spine all scuffed up to the point you almost cant read the first few letters of the title.
I have this version in green, but the bar code is different than this one. It's 817424013895. Any ideas?
This album is incredible.
