5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. 22 April 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great album and needs to be listened to. I can warmly recommend good music lovers to pay attention to the dark and heavy sound of "Code". If you like David Torn then listen to Code's dark and vibrant pulsating blood. You can't let go as soon as "Code gets under your skin.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Clever, So Smart, So beautiful, So Emotionnaly Full 20 April 2012
By Malhomme - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's been for 12 years now in my CDs. Today That I find the soundcloud page of Robbie Aceto, I feel like letting everyone know how good this is. 12 years later, it remains a jewel in my music library. Exactly the kind of album one wishes to make. 12 years later after listening over and over, it still feels fresh. It still amazes. I still have surprises and still have goosebumps. Strong composition, strong songs. Great participations also from Steve Jansen of Japan and David Sylvian fame, David Torns who brings clever guitar looping, method and produces the album.
I still feel strong about Code. Trust and Into Indigo still paralyse me. The atmosphere of The dog it was still haunts me.
This is an album that requires commitment. But really, would you want music to work otherwise ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 12 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Like progressive music? Like somethiing totally refreshing? Off the beaten track? Then this album is for you. Influenced by David Torn (who plays drums and "effects" on the album), Aceto uses a great, sometimes distorted guitar sound to generate some of the most melodic, soul stirring tunes. Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite there 28 Jan 2000
By Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A good debut album, but exactly that, a debut album. Usually an artist has put his or her best work to date into a debut and thus produces a recording of the previous few years of their lives, a kind of "best of ..." containing tracks never heard before. Some of the tracks here are not "best of" material, although most of them have redeeming features.
I'd describe it as "competent". It washes by but doesn't engage my attention much. There are no gasps of surprise on first listening, and no eagerly awaited moments on subsequent listenings. Its a pleasant-sounding recording, Torn's influence is subtly obvious, which you might think is a contradition, but is not.
If you're expecting a Torn-alike, forget it, Robby Aceto has his own voice. You're going to have to enjoy the album for what it is.
What it is.
A nicely produced debut recording from a guitarist influenced by David Torn. His guitar sounds are somehow less interesting than those of Torn although the methods for recording are probably very similar. Guitar distortion is less appealing from Aceto than it is from Torn (to my ears, at least) because it is more agressive and abrasive.
The more atmospheric tunes/songs also tend to meander in a way that Sylvian, Torn, Fripp & co all seem to avoid. With more reflective music there is a much finer touch needed to supply that "edge" that will make people want to come back to the music again and again.
But its a good debut album.
