3 stars Jazz oriented, epic symphonic like compositions and movie focus format restraint Phil Manzanera's usual "latin" urges, and as I noticed again, for good!

Surprisingly this PHIL MANZANERA "Nowomowa: Wasted Lands", which as the press ad release notes; "This was recorded as the theme movie music to "The Wasted Lands". It was first released in 1988 by Coda as the band Nowomowa . It was re-issued by Expression in 1999 as a Phil Manzanera album.", deals more with Paul William's piano than Phil's electric accomplice.

Rich in moods and arrangements, its music direction is in fact quiet visual as good soundtrack music tends to be.

Expecting a Phil Manzanera release as such will decieve Phil's fans, but will surely catch prog Jazz/Fusion followers' attention.

Well composed, great unexpected highlights and a restricted but highly creative guitar (with "latin" flavor) which serves all kind of purposes and in turn outstands in every appearance by not being "main" instrument all the time.

***3.5 PA stars.
