Editorial Reviews

Review

A visionary guitarist, Ribot is a fount of pithy
commentary. --New York Times

He is mercurial in the best possible sense and
impossible to categorize neatly. --National Public Radio

Product Description

Marc Ribot is widely recognized as one of the great
guitar originals his distinctively edgy and impassioned
sound can recently be found on albums by such diverse
musicians as Robert Plant/Alison Krauss, Norah Jones,
Allen Toussaint, McCoy Tyner, Marianne Faithful, John
Zorn, and The Black Keys. Silent Movies finds Ribot
taking another surprising step in a career filled with
unexpected turns.
Almost a polar opposite of his last release, Party
Intellectuals, Silent Movies is mostly filled with his
gorgeously contemplative compositions performed solo,
with minimal overdubs. The album reflects Ribot s
fascination with movies and contains pieces intended to
function as music for films: some adaptations of music
he has written for film, some for movies that he scored
that were never released, some for classic silent films
that he scored for his own amusement, and some for
films of his own imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars every morning and night November 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
every morning and night I've been listening to this record. Sometimes while reading, sometimes while sitting right up to the stereo and listening to all the beautiful subtleties of his phrasing. The record has a decidedly elegiac tone. In someways I expected more humor from a release titled Silent Movies, but I couldn't be happier with this record. It may be a touch more accessible than Saints although Saints has a lot of variation and is a masterpiece. This is a more brooding and hypnotic and romantic record. Ribot's brand of romanticism is not tender in the way that some like Nike Drake or Brad Mehldau can be, but is fiery and passionate in the way that Miles' playing or a Picasso painting can evoke.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another intriguing recording February 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
When you are sitting in the dark beside a fireplace, holding a mug of ale, and thinking about plot elements for a novel, this album is what you want to be listening to. I could trot out the usual adjectives, but I'm not. You will recall them, too, while you are listing to "Silent Movies."

Marc Ribot keeps popping up on all sorts of intriguing recordings, and he has made another one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silent Movies is amazing! March 21, 2012

I love this record! Amazing, spooky, haunting, intimate solo works by the legend Marc Ribot. I am really pleased that people put out records this good amidst the sea of commonplace work. I applaud the artist, as well as the producer,and the label for doing this. It's not wasted on me.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unarguable masterpiece September 1, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is going in my short stack with "Ballads" by Derek Bailey.
I've been DYING for some real, honest mic'd and not piezo'd acoustic. What the F*&K is it with every acoustic guitar player using pickups in the studio? Seriously? Why should guitar builders even make great sounding instruments anymore? Oh right, here's a very compelling one: MARC RIBOT.
This is already one of my favorite recordings. EVER. Beautiful. I've always loved Marc Ribot's music, but now I LOVE Marc Ribot's music.
Move over "My Goals Beyond", you've got company on the CD tray..
Holy jesus what a great recording.
