"Another extraordinary release by Sardinian virtuoso, Paolo Angeli, this time featuring compositions by Fred Frith and Björk -- all played solo in real time (though when you hear it, it's hard to believe it) on his highly customized and extended, electrified, giant Sardinian folk guitar. A tour de force of technique and at the same time highly musical; and there is so much going on here at any given time that it is difficult to relate what your ears tell you to just one Frankenstein instrument. Dense enough that it rewards listening to a few songs at a time, though you could probably also dance to it. This is Paulo's 3rd release for ReR; the first introduced his remarkable instrument and more remarkable technique, the second was of closely scored, very large ensemble works; here he returns to the guitar but under the discipline of the real-time realization of written and arranged compositions."
