Guitarist Nels Cline, recently named a "Guitar God" by Rolling Stone Magazine, presents a brilliant solo CD that covers an extraordinarily broad range of musical styles, with a surprising acoustic sensibility. The provocative title belies the intensely personal nature of this album which demonstrates a daring musicianship and a willingness to take musical and emotional risks. Coward blends improvisation and composition with a huge and constantly changing emotional and timbral palette. "Coward" is a musical tour de force.

Reviews
Like the best solo guitar albums, Coward transcends being merely an exercise in the instrument's vast potential”though it is that, too. Impossible to create without Cline's unequivocal virtuosity, the largely acoustic Coward remains about everything but guitaristic acumen. Instead it's an instrumental masterpiece, further positioning Cline as one of today's most open-minded composers, players and musical conceptualists. - John Kelman, Downbeat
