A diversion
N. Dorward | Toronto, ON Canada | 06/07/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This album was inspired by _Guitar, Drums & Bass_, & similarly has Bailey playing over a variety of prerecorded electronic rhythm tracks. Bailey is playing well, which makes it doubly frustrating that many of the tracks are tedious in the extreme--try the opening track (programmed by Darryl Moore) for a good instance of the disparity between the guitarist's typically shrewd contributions & the feebleness of the underlying track. If you're looking for off-the-wall Bailey, try _Mirakle_, which has him with a jazz-funk rhythm section & turns out an unexpected success. This disc is only for the curious. Fans of John Oswald's plunderphonics will want to note that track 11 is an Oswald cut-up of a solo recording by Bailey; Bailey doesn't play on top of it."
