    It's going to need a few listens to really appreciate all the nuances.

    That second one sounds like you're stuck on hold from some sort of customer service phone call; and you're waiting to talk to a human. But you're stuck there forever! (Although I kinda like it).

    Imagine If you were on hold on a phone call that you had to make but didnt want to, and this song was playing, but the quality was like less than fair bootleg quality, AND you have it on speakerphone! :eek:

    But still I kinda like it!

    @Flyin' Brian - have you heard the new record yet?

    I'd be interested in your thoughts.

    I read one review where the reviewer was bemoaning that the orchestral stuff was added separately.

    I've only had time for one spin since the records showed up, and it will take at least a few more to sink in. Like anything Metheny, it's a journey... there's a lot of deep stuff here and the recording is excellent. I'm a big fan and I'll continue to make at least one show from every tour until I die, or he stops touring.

    Yep that's where I got it too.

    Although $12USD is about $1.5M in my currency.

    I've listened to it three times so far. Each listening had revealed more details, hooks and twists. The orchestral arrangements are sublime.

    The first thing I noticed is how Lyle-esque Simcock's piano playing is.
    Big thanks to Steve Rodby for hooking him up with Pat.

    America Undefined could have been a part of Secret Story or Wichita Falls with the orchestration. But it's very typical Metheny...that is to say excellent. A highly orchestrated mini symphony with spaces built in for improvisation and leaves a lot of room for interpretation by the listener.
    I think it's a huge ... dare I say the word ... political statement.

    The core quartet shows very advanced musicianship on all the cuts.

    I can also understand people here calling it boring. It's not background music. It needs to be actively listened to in order to catch all of the nuance.

    I'm looking forward to listening repeatedly.
