3 stars Arnioe returns with what I believe is it's 5th album.

This Australian combo is a one man band with Aron Scharfegger and various guest musicians. A nice and tidy unit, in other words. Ate My Words is seventy-one minutes long, divided into eight pieces. It has a mix of a new-age and easy listening build up of songs with some hints of Pink Floyd and Eloy. In other words; listen to this album while relaxing in a sofa. Unfortunate, that means falling into sleep in my case. Burnt potatoes, falling cookery standards and a vocally very unimpressed girlfriend is the end product. This album and this music is simply not so interesting that it keeps me awake. Hence, a nailbed has replaced the sofa while I am listening to this album with the view to review it.

The music is based on tangents, guitars, woodwinds, cello, drums and bass. It is entirely instrumental. It has some good melody lines and some good solos. It is not a bad album at all. Hence, it deserves a good character from me. My gripe is that albums like this is tedious and sleep inducing. But a lot of melody lines here makes me take notice. In particular without the comforts of a nice pillow.

I am by no means a fan, but this album is a weak three stars album.

3 stars
