Very similar to the previous “You Had it Coming”. Again Jeff does better than all those teenage guitar wannabes half his age. Some terrific rocking stuff here, combined with truly great “spacey” tracks.
Hi-energy guitar, October 3, 2003
Reviewer: kelly a chitwood (see more about me) from Camden, United States ordered this for someone else, but had to listen. I love the techno bass and rhythm that accompanies Beck’s solid guitar solos. Very modern which makes me think that this will reach a wide variety of people. Very intense music, I imagine driving down the highway from the very start of “So what”. So fasten your seatbelts and hang on!!!
Again, the re-invention of Jeff Beck…, October 1, 2003
Reviewer: Thomas Quarles (see more about me) from Austin, Texas United States The same gut-grabbing guitarist that first caught my attention so long ago returns in his latest foray into melody, trance and technology. At fifty years old and I still love this man’s playing as much as I did at fifteen with “Truth”, at eighteen with “Rough and Ready” and at twenty-two with “Blow by Blow”. In the 1970’s I was fortunate to catch Jeff and John Mclaughlin on tour together. They, along with Robert Fripp are my three favorite guitarists of the past thirty or so years. I consider myself, and the music world, lucky indeed that Jeff Beck is as alive and vibrant as ever. I love this new CD. Techobeat, sampling, studio wizardry and all. Jeff Beck is as hard, delicate and melodic as he’s even been. More so, I think. (Apparently, he’s also been tearing it up on tour with drummer Terry Bozzio…)
