CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
Wilco guitarist extraordinaire Nels Cline has released a new solo disc titled Coward. Long sought after as a session artist Cline is an inventive guitarist of the highest pedigree. Using a vast array of acoustic and electrical guitars and a multitude of effects Cline crafts a sound that is at times hypnotic and intense and other hushed and transcendental. A good portion of Coward is made up of the tracks "Rod People's Gradual Ascent to Heaven" clocking in at an epic eighteen minutes plus and "ONAN (suite)" clocking in at a more reasonable seventeen plus minutes. Other tracks of interest include "Thurston Cowboy" an ode to Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, "X Change (s)" and "The Nomad's Home" that features some nice slide guitar from Cline.
