Metheny has always known the difference between light and lightweight, and even at his most delicate, he avoids entering "Muzak" territory. True to form, the improviser doesn't shy away from making extensive use of technology, but is insightful enough to do so in a very warm and soulful fashion. Like Still Life, Letter from Home is a fine example of a CD that is both a commercial and an artistic success.

It's a wonderful choice to end the album with. You find yourself wanting to audibly sigh at the end. A perfect end to a beautiful 60 minutes.
