5 stars I thought this was the best (mostly) acoustic guitar album out there, and certainly AP's best, until I heard FIELD DAY. I've already reviewed that one though. And the runner up is. . . . . Antiques! Yes, it has been dethroned as my all-time favourite guitar album, by the very talented and incredible ANTHONY PHILLIPS. He beat himslef! I didn't think it could be done, but he did it. No worries, this CD is still packed with some of the most heartfelt and melodic guitar playing you'll ever hear. On this record he teams up with Argentinian virtuoso Enrico Berra Garcia. When these two play together, magic happens. It's as if they frolic together, fight together, and cry together. The full range of emotions are captured with their twenty fingers (actually, some songs are multi-tracked, giving it more depth and complexity) What a performance! I must agree with reviewer "linnie" - I would love to see this performed live. Only, not in a 1000 seat venue. But up close and personal in about a 150 seat sound works theater. Even though Field Day is better, this is still as deserving of 5 stars as any other 5/5 album on the site. If you're looking for music that's cooler than cool, than look no further than P.P. & P. III Antiques.
Mcgraster | 5/5 |
