Andante Sostenuto. Anton Diabelli. Maybe Just a Dream. Farmers Dance. Kemp's Jig Anonymous Composer. Jan puts in some amazingly speedy guitar runs and licks, of which much is bluff, and self- indulgent jamming, which sometimes gets a little lost, but when Jan gets it together and plays with intent, it's really superb stuff. To be honest, it's kinda hard to tell where one track ends and another begins, but there is a guitar solo which seems pointless, as it is mainly fudged, Jan's fingers missing more notes than he manages to produce.

Fortunately this drops into another ambient piece, with beautiful melancholy melody lines, and some nice invention in all parts that makes this the first real highlight of the album. The harmony is dense, and provides occasional but transient splodges of timbral colour that are absolutely unique and provide a brilliant drive.

The ryhthms are superb - all parts playing cross rhythms in an almost free-jazz style that creates a whole in a quite jaw-dropping way.

You're unlikely to find a tab for this one ;0 This builds back to the quasi-funk, but it's as if someone has lit the blue touch paper and stood well back, as Jan lets off the fireworks - with the band not doing at all badly behind him!

This dissolves into disturbing and chattering noise, with echoes of Pink Floyd at their most experimental. Next up we have some music that is accurately in the style of th century lute music - oddly enough, played by Jan on his Alto-Lute that he bought after seeing the great British guitarist John Williams. This is follwed up by "Etude", a quite wonderful little study inna Spanish style. Neither performance would have made it onto a John WIlliams recording, as both are a little ragged in places - but for a rock guitarist, this is amazing stuff indeed.

Now don your shades, man, and check out the cool grooves of "Blue Boy", a track that grows into this wierd piece of rock that sounds at least 10 years ahead of its time. This is one funky track, and Jan provides some talking Wah-wah to round it off just nicely. Perhaps a tad cheesey in places - but that's just being picky really.

  7. The second half of the album is rather patchy, and several tracks feature Akkerman getting to grips with the lute (an instrument he later became extremely accomplished on). Kemp's Jig will be familiar to owners of Gryphon's debut album, and the other lute pieces are in a similar vein.
