The very fact that she perplexes some listeners (like Hedges did) is good.

Her music is amazing... so complex and melodic commanding 100% of your attention.

Her sound is acoustic guitar but the playing style brings out a whole new sound.

It's really simple. As an accomplished acoustic guitar player myself, I can speak from relative experience that this album is nothing short of the most astonishing SOLO INSTRUMENTAL ACOUSTIC GUITAR recordings of the last 20 years. Kaki's techniques, although not necessarily groundbreaking, are very virtuosic and disciplined, to say the least. Give her a break...she's 23, and she self-produced her first album. I give her props on that basis alone.
To the point: if you enjoy Michael Hedges, Alex DeGrassi, Preston Reed, Billy McLaughlin, Pierre Bensusan, and any other acoustic guitar virtuoso that fits this bill, BUY THIS ALBUM. I own more guitar-based albums than any other type in my 1000+ album music collection, and very few of these guitar albums BLEW ME AWAY within the first 20 seconds of listening (Michael Hedges did that to me). I knew instantly that this was a genius artist, and was so thrilled that finally a woman (a very young woman) has entered this male-dominated genre with such presence, confidence and grace.
Kudos to Kaki!
Now buy this album.

There were two records in the past four years that I decided I had to have after 10 seconds of listening: Nelly Furtado's Whoa, Nelly!, and this little indie disc.
If you're searching for fresh sounds in music, this disc will delight you as wunderkind Kaki King conjures up a whirlwind of textures from just an acoustic guitar. She plays with a terrific sense of groove and unusual harmonic voicings, and frequently turns her guitar into a percussion instrument, sounding like more than one guitar player.
I have one gripe about this record. The "songs" are too loose. Not surprisingly, given King's wide palette of sounds, her songs sound like jammy home demos -- very interesting to listen to, but also somewhat shapeless. In the album notes King herself describes the recording process as very loose and casual ("recorded in various friends' studios") and this is reflected in the lack of structure in the music.
While King's instrumental vocabulary is astonishing, her expression is often vague precisely because she employs so many different voices on each song. She is good at creating grooves, but the sounds are so diverse that they lose focus, and it's hard-pressed to find some sort of emotional or expressive meaning in each individual track. So I find it hard to actively listen to this whole album through and through; there comes a point where all the myriad of sounds meld together into an innovative and intriguing, yet somewhat dissatisfying whole.
Like so many guitar virtuosos before her -- Jimi Hendrix, Yngwie Malmsteen -- Kaki King would work better when she applies her astonishing range of techniques to more specific applications and expressions. Until then, she is still a highly refreshing listen, showing promise aplenty, and her instrumental chops are worthy of the highest respect.

Not unlike many other converts to her music, I first heard of Kaki King when she was opening act for one of a diverse number performers with whom she has been touring. In my case, she opened up for Victor Wooten. The audience was ready for FUNK! And here comes this diminutive player with hippie clothes. My first reaction was probably echoed by many: "Not another folksy singer-songwriter." This impression was shattered after a few seconds of this virtuoso's playing; many a jaw dropped when witnessing this master at work. The only better acoustic guitar performance I have had the pleasure to witness was when DiMeola, De Lucia, and McLaughlin toured together in the early 90's. As wonderful as this CD is, you will still be amazed when you see her perform live.
Get this CD!

I definately disagree with one of the reviews made. The guitar is a percussive instrument. The art of abstraction through guitar can be seen in kaki's playing. Although not perfect, it almost seems as if she will only continue to grow as a musician, her tracks vary considerable on attack and complexity. I'd expect more on her up and coming albums. Nobody has ever said experimentation will lead you to the perfect solution every time. In Kaki's playing, her experimentation on various levels is merely her way of pushing the envelope on music showing guitar in both light-hearted and rocky compositions. Don't lump this girl in any category as a wannabe, you might as well say everyone whose ever tapped on guitar is a van halen wannabe and evereyone who plays a power chord is a nirvana wannabe. Believe me, an appreciation for

the auv on gaurve (spelling?) genre never hurt anyone. Its art, not politics. Listen to reed and hedges carefully, they vary considerably.

I just saw Kaki King at the Bonnaroo festival in TN the weekend of the 13th. I had never actually heard any of her songs before the show and went on only having read about her music. I must say that I was completly blown away right from the start. ... her technique isn't exactly groundbreaking, but she does it so well, with so much dicipline ... that it is nothing short of amazing. The first person I thought about was Michael Hedges upon hearing her play. I can't wait to see the direction she goes in the future...especially since she is only 23!!
