"Protégés of Robert Fripp, CGT expands out of their comfort zone on this one to push their technical expertise to the limit. Any group that can successful put Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in C# Minor" onto 3 acoustic guitars has got to be special - but then they move to a western style on "Train" and an incredibly rocking "Good, Bad, and Ugly". But the true gem is "Up in the Clouds" - A cross between Pink Floyd and Vangelis, or King Crimson and Enya? No comparison does it justice, but it is moving. A masterful disc."
Still Fun, Less Honest...

"What I loved about Yamanashi Blues was the elegant simplicity of the thing. Three guys, three guitars...simple, direct, and really good.This album adds a bit of production to the mix, some strings here, a little background stuff there...it's all still very good, but I liked stuff the old way. I guess I really am a ludite.Some gold here though. This is one of the best versions of "Apache" I have ever heard, and remarkably, these guys managed to turn the goofy theme from "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly," into high art.Lotsa fun."
