Even more seductive than the Barricade 3 album. ZNR delivers another piece of fragmented beauty; some contemporary classical music, a couple of dances (like the excellent tango "Garden party"), and pieces with a Canterbury touch, all performed with brilliance and ease. This album is more accesible than the previous one, since the sound is a bit wider and more acoustic. Highly recommended.

    America is not dead; it just smells bad.

    1. yeah... you is right! I tried to repost everything from the old blog, but a 100 or so posts fell thru the cracks, and since back then I didnt do backups of the blog, I couldnt reupload the whole load in one swift go... so every now and then you will still see these old ones pop up... some I actually left out on purpose.. like CAN... since it was posting a Can album that got the old place shut...
