Chris Haskett is right when he describes language as being a little less
accessible than nonfiction, but that doesn't mean
that there isn't something of value here. Haskett's guitar stylings are interesting
even in an experimental mode, perhaps moreso than in a band context, since he is not constrained
by a conventional musical structure. If you're a fan of Haskett's guitar solos,
you'll want to check this out.
