Might I remind you that the Let The Power Fall material is quite a bit
older than the current Soundscapes material, and also more than minimalist
in comparison. As a rough outline/example of looping guitar, if not also
an introduction to such work, I think it excels. There is no levels of
complexity to plow through to figure out "how it's done", frankly; and, as
minimalist tone poems, I've always liked LTPF myself.
What exactly were you looking for in this album, to be so disappointed?
