Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2004-10-27 
Fans of Evening Star era Fripp, Windy and Carl, AMP, Flying Saucer Attack, My Bloody Valentine sonic embellishments. Guitar duo that creates lush ambient experimental soundscapes with loops, effects and probably lots of Demerol if not LSD. Tracks are radio friendly in length for the most part (2-5 min).

1) slow fade in looping chords feel
2) ambient layers build prettily
3) 1:30, brief
4) pretty loop layers w/ sparkeling chords
5) piano feel in chords
6-7) FSA’ish, lush
8) almost droning
9) chordal, brief
10) a bit noisier, darker
11-12) spacey
13) pretty
14) long ~20 minute track, loopy and spacey
15) strummy, almost “song”-like
