Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2002-08-08 
Solo acoustic-guitar improv. Abstract but with a focus on melodies and harmonies (actual *notes*!); Smith ventures into Derek Bailey territory only rarely. It's more relaxing that Joe Morris' "Singularity" CD but obviously not easy listening.

Of the three long tracks, #4 is the most pleasant and consistant, although it gets into a bit of a rut. #8 is good for the first and last three minutes, but the middle has long quiet patches that get tiresome. #11 seems the best of the three, carrying darker qualities than #4.

Other tracks:
6 - Peacefull, lots of harmonics
12 - Lots of clacky percolating.
