CD Reviews

If you thought Great Big Boy was weird, get a load of this!
John | Indiana | 10/23/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Well, being the first reviewer, I will break the ice: this is not 6 and 12 string guitar. It is something far beyond quirky. In fact, it shoots so far beyond his previous borders, that you may be dissolusioned. Don't be. This album is layered with brilliant music, twisted guitar lines, unique melodies, and an overall powerful impression. Plus, look at the price. Many people don't care for this CD: critics, Kottke's manager, and even Kottke's wife. But the man himself loves it. And so do I."

"One of the world's finest guitarists plays around with interesting sonics on one of his many mostly-instrumental recordings. Don't expect a lot of flash, unless you are the kind of listener who can appreciate the difficulty of his fingering technique. The word "quirky" is perhaps overused when referring to Kottke, but I can't think of a better adjective either, really.Suffice to say that if you click on the samples of tunes from this CD you'll find a representative sampling of his sound, in styles that range from Cajun to jazz to blues to pop. He's never trying to get his stuff played on radio, being happy to just hang out and create wonderful sonic art. Very enjoyable, relaxing, intriguing, humorous stuff on this collection, even a few toe-tappers."
A solid effort that will grow on you.

"I've heard that critics and others aren't fond of this kottke album, but can't figure out why. The melodies and song structures are as intriguing as most else I've heard of his. true, it isn't my favorite kottke album (why I gave it only 4 stars), but it is worth buying. i believe that the more you listen, the more you will like."
