Michael Hedges' Aerial Boundaries remains one of the most groundbreaking albums in acoustic guitar history, a Grammy-nominated acoustic-based set remarkable for its intimate sound, revelatory playing, and unassailable technique. The 1984 record helped bring Hedges to light as a visionary that both stretched the limits of his instrument and created new languages that have yet been mastered by his peers. Teeming with classically derived harmonies and rapid-fire finger fretboard runs, Hedges' compositions feature multi-layered passages and an incredibly dynamic range of contrasts.

Performing with the determined zeal of a madmen, and blending innovative approaches to tones, tuning, and intensity into his works, Hedges often makes it seem like what we're hearing is produced by more than just one man and his guitar. Stirring tracks such as "Rickover's Dream" and "Spare Change" coincide with an ingenious take on Neil Young's "After The Gold Rush." Hedges plays seductively quiet one moment and suddenly explosive - slow or fast, timid or thunderous - the next.

"There was simply no one like him," Bonnie Raitt said of Michael Hedges following his untimely death in 1997, "a very gifted performer, arranger and composer whose music sounded like nothing that had come before it." Aerial Boundaries remains Hedges' seminal work, and its innovations in technique, tuning, tone, and intensity combined to produce music of untarnished beauty.

"This is the finest album from Michael Hedges, the man who is responsible for the greatest revolution in solo acoustic guitar playing since Leo Kottke...Aerial Boundaries is simply one of the finest acoustic guitar albums ever made, and deserves a place in the library of all serious music fans." - Daniel Gioffre, All Music

"Steeped both in classical harmony and the fingerstyle guitar tradition of Leo Kottke, Martin Carthy, and John Renbourn, Boundaries remains the late composer-guitarist's seminal work, and its innovations in technique, tuning, tone, and intensity remain key texts in modern acoustic circles." - James Rotondi

"Just as Jimi Hendrix revolutionized the electric guitar via his broad imagination and bold execution, Michael Hedges had a similar impact on acoustic guitarists with his ground-breaking technique, changing how the acoustic guitar is played and perceived by many." - Guy Little, Acoustic Magazine
