2 stars Heavily experimental John Zorn album. He doesn't play there at all ( it is not rare in Zorn's albums), but the only musician is guitarist Marc Ribot.

So, it's a guitar sound album. Not guitar music, but guitar sound. John Zorn is a person, who initiated these heavy experiments with guitar sounds, and Marc Ribot is playing musician.

All album consists of 35 very short, often just some seconds long, recorded sound pieces. In rare moments it could be named as musical sounds, but more often it is just some sounds were taken from guitar by all possible ways.

If interesting in few moments as experiments with guitar sound, in it's bigger part the album is almost unlistenable.

For collectors and heavy fans only.
