The second of three albums by Wayne Horvitz's short-lived band, Bring Yr Camera continued with the idea of an instrumental rock-oriented group playing (mostly) Horvitz's quirky jazz and gospel-inflected compositions. Dave Tronzo replaced Bill Frisell in one of the two guitar seats, adding a country blues flavor to several of the pieces, including the relaxed "Philip." Horvitz's sing-songy melodies can have a tendency to slide into an easy slickness, making the presence of Elliott Sharp, who provides healthy doses of gritty noise, essential to the success of the project.
