The Rarity of Experience

The Rarity of Experience

This album solidifies Chris Forsyth’s status as indie rock’s most lyrical guitar stylist; his six-string sojourns come off like a combo platter of Richard Thompson, Tom Verlaine, and Jerry Garcia. But it marks some new territory for Forsyth, too. Besides scaling majestic musical heights on rockers such as the two-part “Anthem,” getting subtly psychedelic on the sprawling “Harmonious Dance,” and boldly interpreting Thompson’s guitar showpiece “The Calvary Cross,” he takes a worthy turn at the microphone on both sections of the arrestingly angular, rather Television-esque title track.
