Cline, Nels: Coward (Cryptogramophone)
Label: Cryptogramophone    
Released in: USA    


"In Coward, guitarist Nels Cline offers a beast of a different set of colors, presenting an album of solo overdubs with an extraordinarily broad stylistic palette and a decidedly acoustic bent, to form a whole whose daring never eclipses form. For nearly 25 years the Wilco guitarist that Rolling Stone recently dubbed a "Guitar God" has been contemplating a solo-overdub project, and as a result several of the offerings on Coward are older compositions. The album buzzes and pulses with tension but relatively few moments involve anything approaching high volume, and these soon fade back to the luminously introspective orchestrations so abundant throughout. "Coward" blends improvisation and composition on a huge and constantly changing timbral palette, and Cline pushes the boundaries of his work even further."-Cryptogramophone
