Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-09-03 
Slow-moving improvs pitting acoustic guitar with darkly abstract electronics, with Wadada Leo Smith's trumpet adding restrained color on top. Occasional spoken female voice.

Atmospheric, often heavy and dark. Like a bleak landscape. Many tracks start quiet but build quickly.

1- Calm guitar flow with increasing menace
2- Abstract rumble, gets fast/loud
3- Noisy, artsy.
4- Slow electronic swoops like evil ghosts. Crisp trumpet.
5- Develops into a huge menacing sound, glacial
6- Sparse "industrial" start; one long tone ends it
7- Vocal recitation, then slow trumpet. Ending trails for a while
8- Fuzzy buzzing, female speaking. Insistent; lots of electronics.
9- Cavernous punches over calm flow. Quiet buzz to start.
10- Fancy dancing trumpet/guitar near the end. Quiet start.
11- Quiet bells, then thundering bubbly (slow) wrath
12- Spare squalls, into slow buzzy machine stomping
13- Slowly jazzy trumpet lead, a hip lyricism
14- Slow, sparse, dark. Electronic washes end it.
