CD Reviews

THIS is Gary Moore!
Christopher Michael | Oakland, CA USA | 10/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"No offense to his blues stuff, but to me this guitar work stands up with the greatest; His '80's lead style evokes strong mixture of Van Halen, Schenker, Jeff Beck, and Vivian Campbell. The leads in the title track, Devil in her Heart, Empty Rooms, and Murder in the Skies are still hard to fathom, and Shapes of Things still remains one of the greatest rock/metal solos to come from this era. Moore displays an incredible balance of technique and spine chilling emotion...Rock/metal guitar fans will be pleasantly(if now overwelmingly)surprised at how much he shreds here; Those who have the album already know what I'm talking about...His most shining moment as far as I'm concerned."
Some of 80's Metal's Finest!
PROBLEM CHILD | Henderson, NV | 09/16/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The title and opening track sets the mood for the CD, putting great 80's metal with nuclear anxiety right on the table. "Shapes of Things" will take you back to the Summer of '83, when GM dominated even US rock radio with this track. Maybe you've forgotten this fantastic rocker and maybe you didn't even know at the time who it was. It's actually a cover of an old Yardbirds song, but you've never heard a makeover like this! The ferocious, galloping rocker "Murder in the Skies" relays the true tale of a commercial passenger jet shot down by communist fighter planes during some of the most intense moments of the cold war. It begins with a stellar solo where you'll find darker metal's answer to Van Halen's Eruption.
My 4-star rating picks up anything from pretty good right up to just about a 5-star rating. And I stop at a 4 here for a few reasons. Empty Rooms does beat most other ballads. Even so, calling it the '84 Remix really doesn't even justify the repetition of the song as a "bonus" track. Also the instrumental, Blinder, just doesn't go anywhere, which distinctly disappoints--especially with what GM does everywhere else on "Victims". Aside from these things, you've got tons of solid 5 star material here.

" the Gary Moore that I will always hold near and dear to my heart, for sadly, this Gary Moore no longer exists. For me he was one of the finest rock guitarist ever. His playing was balls to the wall and he had the chops to pull it off. Sadly he never got his just due here in the United States but there's no mistaking that Gary was the real deal. Victims of The Future starts off with some nice mellow acoustic guitar and then BOOM!!!...the power chords kick in! Put this bad boy in your iPod, crank it up and watch the smoke come out! Enuff said!
