First review just in for Gary Lucas’ new “Cinefantastique” album:
“Guitar wizard Gary Lucas’ impressive CV includes stints with Captain Beefheart and writing iconic songs with Jeff Buckley. As a movie buff, he also often performs one-man live soundtracks to macabre classics like Spanish “Dracula”. His hypnotic, cinematic virtuosity is celebrated further on this stirring record, which also includes re-imagined guitar scores to cult, classic flicks by Fellini, Hitchcock and Herzog.”

—Stephen Daultrey, Bizarre (UK), Sept. 2013
