Wind and Wire, reviewer Bill Binkelman writes: This album is a first-rate exploration of acoustic guitar instrumentals; I was consistently impressed by both ALDO's production and his winning ways with melody, song structure, and, of course, his guitar playing; I highly recommend this CD; Over the years, I've seen a lot of good-to-great talent go unrecognized, but ALDO's "Close To You" is simply too good to be ignored.
