Sonic Soundscapez
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album has an amazing sound to it. The Title track is a 32 minute guitar loop that just keeps building and twisting,the guitar sound is awesome."Non-Site#3" sounds like the kind of stuff that Sonic Youth have been doing on the SYR EP's."Notebook" is a spoken word track with lyrics in the same style as his poetry."Here" is a beautiful acoustic instrumental .The album ends with a cover of the John Lennon song "Isolation""

"Sonic Youth has made a career out of creating sublime climaxes of vast and spacious proportions. Lee Ranaldo has been one half of that contribution over the bands 21 year span. Amarillo Ramp's title track, a 32 minute soundscape of heightening, spacious climax remarks on Ranaldo's talent of creating (sometimes frightening) space with sound. It provides an olfactory explanation of the artist Robert Smithson's spacious, geographic artwork of the late 20th century. Although Amarillo Ramp stands well enough on its own, Ranaldo includes additional tracks which act as added bonuses to his talented, experienced opus. Among them include a soundscape with help from Sy mates Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley, a Kerouacian spoken word piece, a rare acoustic ballad piece, and a cover of John Lennon's "Isolation". Over all, this collection is highly recomended to anyone fascinated with postmodern art and the multi-faceted emotional/musical realm of one of the century's most underrated guitarists, Lee Ranaldo."
