4 stars I am not sure how truly progressive this album is because it consists of 32 solo acoustic guitar pieces, however, I can not exaggerate enough on what a treat and gift it is to have this collection of instrumental ditties and fully worked out acoustic guitar songs from one of the masters of off-beat and unexpected melody of our time. It is also particularly enjoyable to follow the track list while matching each song with Ant's list of guitars from his rather extensive collection. While many if not all of the 32 songs here achieve the elevated status of 'beautiful,' the four opening and closing songs and the 12-string pieces definitely haunt me. So many others are worthy of special mention but I won't; just get the album and pick out your own favorites--there are sure to be a dozen or more.

Of all of Ant's albums, this one rates near the top--only behind "The Geese and the Ghost" and "Back to the Pavilion" along side all of the Private Parts and Pieces and "1984."
