2 stars This is a cleaning of the shelves release. Trey wanted to put a perspective on his first ten years, this is it. The tracks with Serpentines vocals are a bit painful. Trey would be best advised to stick with the instrumental core of the group. Bob Muller is an incredible percussionist, bringing some East Indian sounds and rhythms into a complex soundscape. Puttin' on the White Shirt and Hawaii 2 Oh feature some competent trumpet work from Dave Douglas, but this is Trey's show. Trey begins his transition to the Warr guitar, another Stick-like "touch-style" guitar. Trey plays with a lot of harmonics, buzzsaw lead fills, shimmering multi-note flourishes and a dash of Frippisms. Megrez also appears on the first Gordian Knot CD, along with Trey. Like One Thousand Years, there is quite a bit of ambient dronings. Not Trey's best. Get the Joy of Molybdenum or Untune the Sky for his better work.
