Australian fretboard prodigy Tommy Emmanuel’s association with fellow ax-god Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label has been a marriage made in guitar heaven, with this album further pushing the finger-style master into the crowded American pop music spotlight. Indeed, the fevered “Gameshow Rag/Cannonball Rag” medley included here was nominated as Best Country Instrumental Performance of 2006. But while that track and the flamenco-tinged, equally breakneck opener “Cantina Senese” underscore Emmanuel’s reputation as the Eddie Van Halen of contemporary acoustic guitar, the balance of the album downshifts into material that’s more intimately scaled. The title track, “Cowboy’s Dream” and “Antonella’s Birthday” are inviting, melodic exercises that further display his gifted technique, while tracks like “Lewis & Clark,”  “And So It Goes” and “Digger’s Waltz” (the latter presaged by a haunting rendition of “Taps”) recall the introspective folk spirit of Ry Cooder. “Walls,” a vocal duet with partner Elizabeth Watkins, seems aimed squarely at contemporary country chart sensibilities. But quieter moments like “Keep It Simple” and the harmonics-punctuated iTunes exclusive “Finger Lakes” also showcase a corner of Emmanuel’s soul that’s as melancholy as his opening salvo is fiery.
