Alford used to be in a band called Magic Carpet (I've got one of their albums, and will get around to writing about it eventually). This solo album takes the same West-Meets-East tack, only is more enjoyable for the most part. He starts off with the title track, 14 minutes of tasty jamming with some recurring themes to hold it all together. Alford's sitar combines with some great jamming, jazzy electric piano, bass, and drums, plus some electric guitar as a counterpoint to the sitar. It's kind of like a rock-oriented version of John McLaughlin's "Peace" pieces off My Goal's Beyond. Then we get some shorter pieces without the rock elements. I'm not qualified to judge him as a real sitar player on traditional terms, but to my ear the music is quite enjoyable, and I'm no stickler for stickling to tradition anyway.
There's a major letdown with "Apocalypse", which adds some jarring electronic effects along with the sitar and some flute. …
