I believe this is Pat's first album of just solo guitar work. I've got a lot of CD and DVD Metheny in my collection, and I hate to say it, but as time goes on, I find his work is becoming less interesting, and not particularly groundbreaking anymore. My favorite stuff is his '70's and early '80's work. I won't deny he is still making good music, though.

For those who find album cohesion important to you, this is basically a collection of really nice mellow acoustic guitar music, which according to the liner notes, is what he set out to do. Also of note is that he used a non-standard guitar tuning and played a baritone guitar, which he says challenged him ways of playing that he wasn't used to. Anyone already a Pat fan or who just likes good solor guitar work should probably enjoy this. Just doesn't move me that much, but still a keeper for my collection.
