The Hidden Rift Review

by Carol Wright

Guitarist Jeff Pearce's caverns, clouds, and plateaus of resonant tones seem to pull from all restrictions of space and time. His arpeggios and melodies are extended and caressed (with help from Barry Stramp of Coyote Oldman). The pure tonal quality offers a sonic massage, an effect that could be enhanced by positioning oneself between the speakers. An album like this could slip one into the hypnotic realms, but Pearce colored the piece with enought gentle dissonances and piquant turns to keep the mind sharp. The effect is like an angel tightrope walking in heaven.
