I like Aidan's work (there's more in my collection) but I was chiefly intrigued to set this album next to Noel Akchote's interpretations of Bach (also in my collection).
I wanted to see how two very different avant-garde guitarists would approach this task...how they would deconstruct and reinterpret such sublime music.
Well, I think the results are fascinating but,perhaps it would be best if you decided for yourselves (if that kind of process interests you). John Cratchley
Nadja aren't usually comfortable turning in a single song that lasts a mere 13 minutes, let alone 6! It still sounds like Nadja, but the normally glacial riffs are turned up to metal speeds - it's kind of... cute! To be honest it is still basically one 13 minute piece (just as many of their albums are basically one hour long track with several movements), but I enjoy the song titles so why not have more. Kudos to the band for tossing us this curveball, Simon Booth
