"No, them Gonzos ain't over the hill yet! They were great musicians in the 1970s and this reunion CD is living proof that John Inmon, Bob Livingston and the other Gonzos can write and play and perform better than ever. True to the Gonzo hertitage, Hands of Time is a really enjoyable fusion of country, rock, R&B, folk and jazz with a couple of East indian sounding tunes that utilize sitar, tabla and other Indian instruments. The recording techniques are modern so the mix and fidelity is a lot better than their 1970s recordings but that magical style that the Gonzos created is still happening. Unfortunately missing from the mix is Gary P. Nunn who penned the group's signature song "London Homesick Blues" which became the theme song for the TV series Austin City Limits. But don't worry, you won't really miss him! Hands of Time is a great listen and leaves the listener wanting to hear more."
