3 stars Deconstruction ahead!

Aidan Baker's "Element (PWYC)", consists of five 1990's composed pieces, finally released in 2000 as his first release.

Experimental to the top, reminds me sometimes of Fred Frith's deconstructions, although Mr, Baker is less preoccupied of being strictly un-musical and of course incisively taking full advantage of over- electrifying his efforts through his electric guitar's sound proclivity towards noise and beyond.

Therefore, expect ambiental distortions couterpointed by raw but bittersweet melody lines , in an early and inspired first release and what at that moment may have sounded like breaking free of the chains of traditional electric-guitar schools and focusing on inventing, the same as Mr, Frith, a self-taught and own, new guitar idiom.

Good enough to climb ***3.5 "imaginary" PA stars.
