  • Having emasculated the desert and the heavens in search of the lost chords, what better place for Roach to turn to then the historic Old West, the source for legends steeped in the tradition of nomadic coyotes and forbidding terrain. He's apparently found a kindred spirit in the guise of lapsteel guitarist Roger King, who not only couches these fertile electro-blues in swathes of haunting atmospheres, but adds his own Morricone-like flourishes and nylon twang. The results suggest an oasis where Ry Cooder meets some wayward loners who may or may not be space oddities, as evident on the prickly electronics, metallic synth chords and nimble, subdued basslines of "The Ribbon Rails of Promise." An unusual collaboration, to be sure, but every bit as rewarding as Roach's other joint ventures, and, in many ways, one of the most original of the bunch.
