8/10 Brett Staff review, 19 August 2010
I really like Christian Fennesz. Tony Buck's in The Necks who I really like too. I don't think I've got an opinion on David Daniell (I'm pretty sure I've heard something of his before but memory is a fickle mistress) but since the other two obviously really like him then I do too. I guess you might be thinking that I'm gonna like this. Well it hasn't really started yet which is why I'm stalling for time here.. Ah, OK - I think I see where this is going now. It's quite a dark, noisy, intense and somewhat cosmically psychedelic bit of improv in which Fennesz sounds on particularly great form with the old laptop-augmented guitar texture routine while Daniell joins him on six-string duties and drumsmith Buck more-than-ably punctuates in his distinctively jazzy style when he feels the need (which is by no means throughout the duration of the thing, as he clearly knows full well when to let the ambience breathe). So in the end I definitely did like it and I think fans of any or all of the trio involved will too.
