Default Neshamah by Tim Sparks

This thread is a chance for MB members to share their opinions of this album, which recently won a FAIR club poll:-

I`ve never heard of this guy, so I`ll be interested to see what the verdict is. Does he have lots of albums ? Does he turn up in someone else`s band as well ?
Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like we’re always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967

In contrast to Frantz Casseus's Haitian Dances I felt that there was much more variation and emotion across this album. It also made more effective use of the tones that can be achieved with an acoustic guitar. To be fair I guess Frantz was probably a lot more limited by the technical resources of the day but on the whole Neshamah was a lot more absorbing emotionally speaking.
