— First review of this album —
3 stars Demos ... unfinished ... remixed ... whatever, it doesn't matter, not at all. Six songs were collected for this album, and they are offering an eclectic mix of impressions. VY is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Gaby Vidal from Puerto Rico, also known for playing with such bands like Odd John Hawkins and Trili. When it comes to this compilation he's supported by two percussionists at least. The virtuoso acoustic and electric guitar playing turns out to be his trademark. Stylistically presented with a wide range from heavy rocking moments to space/ambient explorations. When looking for the latter you may enjoy the melancholic Faith Kills Again. An extended one on this occasion, I mean, while crossing the ten minute mark at least, wonderfully floating and meandering.

The Offended Generation, hey, which is meant here? Would be interesting to know. Anyway, chosen for the kick-off, this comes in as a rocking piece with an opening bass line. But soon it goes in different directions with twists and turns, quite unpredictable, Vidal composes songs which have an interesting, wondrous, unusual flow. Surely a challenge for all of us. I like that attitude. LEMLP on the other hand shows a vocal performance, delivers a slight latin flavour. A bit avantgarde tinged Icing On A Shit Cake then is a case for a gourmet definitely, hahahaha, musically of course. Nice one! This production is really entertaining, that counts. It's worth it to get closer to Vidal's work.

Thanks to epignosis for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
