David Bowie collaborator steps out with solid effort

"Gabrels has been a, well... controversial David Bowie collaborator, but I for one would gladly pick a fistfight with any one of his detractors. "Firedome", written by applying the piston firing sequence of a Firedome's 8 cylinder engine to a major scale (7 degrees, plus 8 = octave), is all he will ever need to secure his place among the greats of rock's avante-garde. The remake of the Bowie/Gabrels penned "You've Been Around" (with actor Gary Oldman [!] on vocals for the second verse), and the slow, noisy cover of "Bad Moon Rising" are definite highlights. A few of the Gabrels-written songs are weak lyrically ("119 Years Ago"), but all in all this is a fine album. 3.5 stars (I'll round up, I guess...)."

"This album demonstrates why Reeves Gabrels is widely known as one of the best and most innovative guitarists around today. On this album he combines his mind-blowing fretwork and effects with melodic rock songs. The highlights are 119 Years Ago with Frank Black on vocals and a re-make of David Bowie's You've Been Around. A must buy for fans of innovative guitar work."

"WOW. This is an interesting discovery. Longtime David Bowie guitarist Reeves Gabrels, Parker Nitefly in hand, recorded this disc while still in Bowie's band. The songs are really good and the guitar playing is frightening. Bowie even makes an appearance. I would like to hear more instrumental work from this guy. If you aren't already familiar with Reeves Gabrels I'd recommend getting "ULYSSES (DELLA NOTTE)" as an introduction. It's newer but probably the best introduction, and has guests like Robert Smith, David Bowie, Dave Grohl, and Frank Black. Then get this CD!"
