Nevermind the 3.5 review. This album is a gem to those familiar with the works of Carla or other musicians involved. However; if not thought posssible it is more of an acquired taste than SGM or Secret Chiefs. The compositions within this album play a lot more on minimalism and abrasive soundscapes. I'd give it a five star rating if not for the risk of you not liking the unique sound that this album/band has to offer; but have settled for 4 with a warning that if you come expectations for SGM or secret chiefs you might find yourself disapointed. However; if you come looking for compositions that tweak more with sublteties in their tunes you can aprreciate this album for all it is worth.

Don't expect the kind of intensity or complexity that you'll find on a Sleepytime Gorilla Museum or Secret Chiefs 3 album. The Book of Knots, though consisting of SGM-members Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi, is far more predictable in it's melodies and song structures that one might expect and may not be a challenging enough listen for the average avant-garde/prog fan. There are some gems here (like "Tugboat" and "Frank's Funeral") and the dreamy atmosphere and Kihlstedt's creepy vocal approach may help captivate the listener. ...if only for the first 25 minutes. 3.5 stars.
