it's the exact opposite of a solo album though, it's thurston making a racket and a bunch of other people doing all the work to process his sounds into different ideas (that sounds slightly dismissive, but my point is that it doesn't qualify as a 'singer songwriter' style solo album anymore than the dozens of other noise records he's released).

as for root itself, it was never my favorite but some of the tracks work, and the acoustic schizophrenia is certainly neat...
