james blackshaw - litany of echoes (tompkins square 2008)
"...Litany of Echoes, James Blackshaw's sixth studio album in five years, shows a more mature, focused and, on the whole, accessible approach to composition. While the album often feels darker and more introspective in nature than on previous releases, many of the songs have a huge-sounding, classical quality to them. With Blackshaw adding some glistening piano work for the first time and Fran Bury returning to play swarms of sweeping string parts for violin and viola, Litany of Echoes is a truly original, affecting and timeless album from a guitarist/composer coming into his own." tompkins square

Menudo viaje. A mí me parece que está increible. Pero no sabría decir que si es mejor o menos mejor que los otros.
