Fantastic explosion of acoustic and electric sounds, "Exploded View--the third ECM release by this extraordinary Minnesota guitarist and tape manipulator--is tribal music with a fascinating futurist spin. The album is vividly articulate in its evocation of natural phenomena and spiritual aura (the bull elephant roar of Tibbetts' screaming fuzz guitar; the eerie mix of gentle acoustic plucking, a galloping tabla drum and a strangely treated tape of Nepalese monks chanting in the distance on "Another Year"). Marc Anderson's forceful percussion has an animated, almost conversational quality, and Tibbetts' striking fret work runs the gamut from meditative solo passages to heartstopping blasts of rainbow feedback. Don't be fooled by the ECM label here; Exploded View is neither chamber jazz nor New Age mood music. Indeed, Tibbetts' exotic soundscape is more like prehistory made new"
