Review of Ophelia Wanders

Simon Lewis at Terrascope Online has this to say about Ophelia Wanders:

Also utilizing field recordings, this time mixed with improvised acoustic guitar, 'Ophelia Wanders' is a inventive collection instrumentals with influences ranging from the experimental tendencies of John Fahey, to the dexterity of pickers such as Bert Jansch. A fine example of this dexterity can be heard on the title track, the playing expressive and emotional, whilst 'over Across and Down' has a more eastern sound in its slowed down style. Final track, the 12-minute, 'In the Falling Light' is a truly beautiful piece and is worth the price of admission alone, the fact that a whole albums worth of good stuff accompany it is reason to celebrate indeed.
