I just think his music is way too clenched and uptight and lacking in swing but as a second tier classical composer he was pretty deent I think.


Yep. Conceptually and structurally his more 'classical' stuff is very unsettling and jagged.

Ironically, it's where he's just free-playing on the guitar that he loosens up and forgets how brilliant he is, if ya know what I mean.


Totally! Artists and writers whose first thought is to let the world know how very clever they are tend to make fairly shitty art.
