Sorry this is not one of Ian's best

"Ian Gillan has made a number of fine records over the years, but this is not one of them. The production is terrible and all the songs have the same sterile sound. Sound problems aside, most of the songs just aren't that good. I have been really disappointed with this one.Nevertheless, there are still a few keepers. "Country Mile" is really nice. "Chandra's Coriander" is interesting. "That's Why God is Singing the Blues" is typically enjoyable Gillan humor/philosophy, and the cover of "Any Way You Want Me" is quite entertaining.Also, be warned that this is not one of Gillan's hard rock albums. It's not exactly soft either, but the sound is far removed from the heavy metal of a record like "Glory Road"."
INTELIGGENT ALBUM WRITTEN BY A GREAT MUSICIAN

"This album by Gillan is about music, not formulas, not rotules like "rock", "jazz" or whatever. Gillan smartly used his time outside Purple commitments to record some different stuff. That was not the case in the MR. UNIVERSE / GLORY ROAD / FUTURE SHOCK days, when he had not Purple to release his full rockers, and so did it with his own band. No. Now, with Purple going strong and strong with Steve Morse on board, there was no need for Gillan release and old-fashioned rocking album. If he did that, I would be dissapointed. DREAMCATCHER is interesting since the first page of the booklet, when Gillan talks about the recent passing away of his father. The songs are well crafted and emotional; the production is simple. I just don't know if all drums and bas are electronic, because the credits only contain Gillan and his long time mate Steve Morris on guitar."
Very good album

"I think this an excellent album, I like every song on the album, it has many differant styles of music on the album, it kind of reminds me of Ian Gillan's new cd " One Eye to Morocco" I highly recommend "Dreamcatcher" to Gillan fans who don't mind a differant side of Ian's songwriting talent."
