Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2013-10-13 
Solo piano. Stripped down elements of all music distilled into sparse piano playing. Budd is a veteran of ambient minimalism, finding deep textures and layers by using space (like the horror Hitchcock conveyed with a simple shadow). He’s been doing this for decades, collaborating with/mentoring the likes of Brian Eno. Speaking of which, this CD brings to mind the piano of Eno’s Music For Airports. For fans of solitude, peace, tranquility. See also Hans Otte, John Hassel, dare I say George Winston and Windham Hill artists of the early 80’s. All instrumental, all tracks similar in their peacefulness so only notes diverging from this will be taken below. Pick any really. Do not operate heavy machinery while listening.

1) (9:32) lovely, melodic 2) (5:42) slightly more pensive in its hesitancy 3) (16:55) 4) (4:52) very sparse 5) (2:04) more complex, almost upbeat 6) (4:41) complex, melodic 7) (2:24) 8) (2:55) complex, pensive 9) (8:10) very pretty 10) (2:37) minor feel 11) (4:53) sparse 12) (7:15) sparse, pretty 13) (1:25)
