Of all the ways improv can be approached, for me it is through the guitar that the most powerful spontaneous expressions take place. Call that part of my rock bias, or warping from one too many Kaiji Haino records, but there it is. Here, a solo venue for guitarist Grant Capes, the instrument cries, drones and pokes holes in the space given to it.
With good improvisation, you can feel the moments when the artist on the tightrope is about to slip, but rights himself and takes off into something unexpected even for him. There are many such successful risks taken on this record. In one fifty minute slab of fretwork, Capes covers a wide range of emotional territory, most of it delivered with passion and expressive chord progressions. He plays inside a groove as well as provides a way into the grooves. Not as holy as Haino, but often in the foyer. 7/10 -- Mike Wood (3 July, 2007)
