Ian Lovdahl Perfect instrumental guitar record. Tyler is an incredible songwriter, because unlike other instrumental albums, "Goes West" never overindulges on its own virtuosity. Every note is where it needs to be, sounding deliberate, and delicate, and it’s satisfying when the songs are exactly as long as they need to be. As someone who also moved out West, I can hear the story in every song. Absolutely outstanding. Favorite track: Virginia Is for Loners.

Lachsior As far as contemporary American primitivist albums go - this is one of the better exemplars.
