Album Review
Reviewed 2012-03-28 
Holy hell you guys. Videogame-influenced fingerpicked guitar?! Listen to this album, you'll be amazed that what you're hearing is from only one guy. Somewhere between classical guitar, bluegrass, and techno, lies Ewan Dobson, a masterful guitarist. Just give it a listen, there's really no other way to convey it. All tracks instrumental.


01. [3:34] Best Friend -- Elegant and straightforward, like a theorem. The proof is trivial.
02. [2:01] Blackberry Blossom -- A bluegrass-influenced dance around a Maypole?!
03. [3:07] ** My Nightmare -- Dark track, guitar harmonics are pretty impressive
04. [6:42] Level 40 -- Feels like I'm questing
05. [2:32] Hallelujah -- Cover of Leonard Cohen's epic.
06. [5:16] ** Ice Winter Rock -- More emotive and adventurous than the previous songs
07. [2:31] Paganini in Spain -- Classical Spanish guitar tribute to the violinist
08. [7:39] Acoustimetallus Plectrus -- Plays like a guitar etude, until around 1:50 when it becomes metal-like
09. [6:32] ** Donkey Kong Expansion Pack -- YEAH! Cover of Donkey Kong Country music!
10. [2:22] Caprice No. 10 -- Know what a caprice is? This fits right in.
11. [2:44] Machinery -- Mechanical and brooding.
12. [2:30] The Pickle Jug -- Bluegrass
13. [5:14] Legend of Brown Goat -- Sharp. The notes fly by.
14. [2:07] ** Kartuli Cekva Operidan "Daisi" -- Most certainly a tribute to a Eastern Bloc dance song. Fast.
15. [3:40] Retro -- Straightforward fingerpicking.
16. [1:56] Nearer My God to Thee -- Cover of an old Christian hymn. Beautiful.
