Kaki King

Dreaming of Revenge

2008-03-24

Dreaming of Revenge solidifies Kaki King?s transition from an acoustic virtuoso to an increasingly talented singer-songwriter. Dreaming highlights both aspects wonderfully, with about half of the tracks being instrumentals and the others having lyrics. In 2006, she became the first woman to receive ?Guitar God? recognition from Rolling Stone. While she was finishing this album, she was also working with Sean Penn for the Into The Wild soundtrack as well as appearing on the Foo Fighters most recent CD. Every track on Dreaming?is a different experience, with King?s intricate guitar work sweeping from the background to the forefront and everywhere in between. - Ben C.
