Not Just Fahey's Ghost

millerbg

Comparing Rose's work directly to Fahey's does yield some use, giving the would-be listener a sense of the open-ended guitar compositions and intricate finger-picked style--but, on Rose is indeed his own man. The Appalachian-influenced numbers on here are filled with dread. On the other hand, the ragas descend into beautiful atonality only to spring forth more majesty. Give it a shot. "Now That I'm A Full Grown Man 2" is the standout track for me.

Mostly Dark Instrumental

TangerineLemming

Unlike the cheery picks of John Fahey on his "Live from Tazmania" album, this album is quite a bit darker. The instrumentation is just as good, but it has a brooding, foreboding quality to it.

This IS purely guitar composition stuff with no lyrics. Pitchfork gave the full album 8.0. It's well worth the download if you like John Fahey's classic albums of the 60's.

This is purely guitar composition stuff, i.e., no lyrics, etc. I downloaded the whole album based on a single track review on Pitchfork. Whoops.
