Originally released in 1997 on Galbraith's own Next Best Way label out of New Zealand, now reissued with 7 bonus tracks. "Even more fractured and strange, if that's possible, than his slightly higher-profile solo releases, Talisman finds Alastair Galbraith deep into sonic exploration of curious, dank corners via his own brand of rock & roll. As is usually the case with his work, there's next to no percussion and only the subtlest suggestion of recurring rhythms, while the only guests this time out contribute extra guitar and, on 'Black Flame,' horn. When Galbraith pulls out all the stops, the results balance neatly between relative accessibility and pure chaos -- 'Cemetery Raga,' featuring David Mitchell on extra guitar, is calm enough up front but has some just gone feedback backing everything up, sounding almost like metal being extruded forcibly." --Ned Raggett, All Music Guide
