Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Michael Brook

RockPaperScissors

2006-07-31

In the past, Michael Brook has collaborated with artists such as Pieter Nooten, Mary Margaret O'Hara, The Pogues, Bryan Ferry, Youssou N'Dour, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Cheb Khaled, Indian electric mandolin player U. Srinivas and the Armenian duduk flute master Djivan Gasparayan. Michael Brook's first solo album since 1992 elegantly combines elements of rock, world, new age, and electronica. As a whole, it is a magnificent work. "I was trying to evoke a sense of place," says Brook, "of different landscapes, of atmospheres. More than anything, RockPaperScissors' is a kind of travelogue... and I hope the listener feels comfortable coming on this slightly eccentric journey with me." – Ben Kleine
