    A fascinating portal into one of the great musical minds. [Jan 2014, p.89]

    More a curiosity than a masterpiece, but a real prize for Jarrett completists.

    No End will not appeal to everyone--especially not all Jarrett fans. But those who've closely observed his processes and evolution will likely embrace it, as will fans of experimental guitar-based rock.

    It gets a bit noodly-doodly at times, but with some stand-out moments, notably the lovely, meditative grace of the bass and guitar alliance in "XII."
  5. Mostly No End sounds like pretty much anyone noodling about in their shed.

    I just spent 93 minutes of listening to something that could have been recorded by my high school music students during a random afternoon of farting around. I am neither uplifted nor healed.
