CD Reviews

Look out Jeff Beck!!

"Listen up all you guitar fans! Trevor Rabin is THE MAN!!! If you want to hear some awesome guitar riffs, this is the cd for you! I have often heard people compare Trevor Rabin to Jeff Beck, but, can Jeff Beck write, compose, play all instruments (except the drums) and produce his own music like this man does? I think not! (and I have to say I am a Beck fan) Look out Jeff Beck! Trevor Rabin is giving you a run for the money! All you YES fans really should invest in ALL of the Trevor Rabin solo's, and you will see for yourself just who contributed to the "YES success" of the eighties. And for all of you Beck fans out there, I'm not saying Trevor is better, just that he is equally as talented at his style of guitar playing. So, buy the Trevor solo's, and prepare for a mind blowing experience! Cheers, and enjoy!!"
All worship the guitar GOD!!!

"Trevor Rabin IS the man! Aside from the seventies sound of this cd, you have to tip your hat to the many talents of this man! If you buy this cd, just read the liner notes and you will see how multi-talented this man is. He played all instruments, (except the drums) wrote all the songs, sang lead and backing vocals, and produced the whole project! Very impressive. His vocals and screaming guitar on the opening track, "Getting to know you better" and "Finding me a way back home" are not to be missed. Any guitar player should have this , and all Trevor solo cd's in their collection. This man is MY guitar hero. Give him a listen, and, he may be your's too!"

"I believe I'm probably one of the very few living humans who fell in love with this album within a month of its original release. I was working in small-town radio at the time, and Rabin's original label (Chrysalis) was one of the few to service the station with promotional LPs. Along with pre-fame Blondie and Split Enz, this debut LP arrived one day.Checking it out, I fell in love instantly and played it repeatedly for years, as well as the followup "Face to Face" LP. I haven't listened to it in some time, yet nearly every song is easily called up from memory. I was frustrated at the time that no one else seemed to pay any attention to the brilliance of the swirling arrangements, wrapped around rock-solid heavy guitar riffs and heart-pounding rhythms.And then he joined Yes, that union resulting in the band's biggest fame with hits like "Owner Of a Lonely Heart." So Rabin did get his appreciation, and has gone on to score multiple hit films with his unique sound.But none of his Yes work or film work, in my mind, matches this phenomenal debut. Imagine if you will a 19-year-old rocker (that's me) slipping this absolute unknown onto the turntable and hearing the gutsy, grab-ya riff at the opening of "Getting to Know You Better," first cut on the LP and CD as well. It's a "how we doin'" riff that refuses to be ignored, and the whole song is chock full of hooks and "turn me up" cues that don't quit.Yeah, that was great, but as the record played on I found that practically every song in this collection was just as enjoyable, just as hard to stop my foot from stomping, just as hard to not sing along. Along with GtKYB, "Fantasy" is another solid fave, although only one or two tracks here can be considered less than superb.A sinful lack of promotion from Chrysalis kept this LP from being discovered by more than a few people, but it's wonderful to see the artist's seminal work getting another chance through rerelease."
