Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-12-15
Mellow, even contemplative. A stripped-down sound of acoustic bass, accompanied by one or two guitars. Pleasantly melodic stuff most of the time, with unavoidably folky atmosphere (given the instruments). The constructions do have a "jazz" feel, with melodies and soloing that get complex, for instance. You wouldn't call it "angular," but it keeps you just off-balance enough to avoid being new age.

1- A jumbly little jam, relaxed but action-packed, with lines that are a bit angular, especially on the acoustic guitar
2- Slowish, spare theme. Catchy, lightly menacing riff later
3- Calm, lyrical, melodic. Soft, mellow.
4- Quietly complex, with some interesting guitar
5- Slow start, into some decently involved guitar work
6- Country twang, quietly pretty.
7- Sad mid/slow melody
8- Crystalline, near new-age feel with country touches. Nicely digging guitar solos later.
9- Slowish, a bit dark
10- Climbing jazzy riff. Upbeat, but only 1:41 long.
11- Slow, melodic, a bit mysterious
