Album Review: Dustin Wong
  • FRIDAY, MARCH 02, 2012

Is it possible for an album to have a plethora of stand-out tracks but to crumble because the structure tying these tracks together is so faulty? On Dustin Wong's (formerly of Ponytails) newest full-length, the word salad titled Dreams Say, View, Create, Shadow Leads, an evershifting dreamscape of looped guitar textures and soaring melodies is crippled when the album's momentum always crashes to a complete and too sudden halt at the end of each song and we are forced to re-invest ourselves in his intricate compositions all over again. This album is jam-packed full of brilliant moments, and many of its tracks taken by themselves are wondrous feats of Dustin Wong's nearly peerless guitar looping talents, but when the album is taken as a whole, it too often comes off as 16 tracks with nothing binding them all together.
