On “Surrender” a bluesy artistic vibe, yet still encompassing sense of moving far beyond, with an abundance free movement with Mota's guitar screaming like Branca, Bailey or Thurston Moore rolled into one. Ferrandini’s atmospheric brush-work adds a nice polish to the track. While on the closing number, "To the Music," Amado opens wide with pounding tones and patterns that are reminiscent of Ayler or Braxton. Mota's guitar wails but never overpowers the piece.
Wire Quartet is a significant addition to the jazz rock moniker; it is fierce, searing and rasping like any other Amado record. Similar to Amado's work with Luis Lopes, but with the profusion that a quartet offers to the sound, adding a level of muscularity to Rodrigo Amado's compositions, this is hard to believe, as his brilliance was already in abundance.
