2 Drink Minimum is the third solo album released by jazz fusion guitarist, Wayne Krantz. It is the first live album released by him, and includes a lot of improvisation and freer techniques than his first two albums. It also includes more use of effects pedals, and implies Wayne's future styles on later Greenwich Mean and Your Basic Live. Songs like "Shirts Off" and "Isabelle" showcase Krantz's uncanny technique of pull-offs and tapping. Wayne's fiery improvisational skills are exhibited on the 2-minute closer to 2 Drink, "Lynxpaw". Though his freer technique is more prominent, Krantz's songwriting abilities still are noticeable. His album builds up to climaxes, as documented on the 9-minute thriller, "Dream Called Love". Wayne also begins to utilize his approach to hybrid picking more prominently on songs like "AFKAP", and "Alliance/Secrets". However, this technique is used more distinctly in his forthcoming albums.



The Allmusic review by David R. Adler awarded the album 4.5 stars stating "Essential listening for fans of gritty, non-commercial fusion music.".
