CD Reviews

Great diverse playing!

"When I first got this album on import vinyl in 1979 or so, I was looking for a great progressive acid rock sound and I got that and more! Since then it has been one of my favorite albums because of the quality of the musicianship and of the music itself. Today great rock is rarely found to be so diverse, from the poetic lyrics and hypnotic guitar work of "Japanese Dream" to the mind blowing molten feedback progressions of the title track. I have always respected Uli for his devotion to his music, and this album is true to form"
Under rated axe meister!

"Being a huge fan of the "Master of the Stratocaster" Jimi Hendrix, I easily gravitated to the sounds of Robin Trower & Mahogany Rush in the early/mid 70's to fill the void. They were the closest to Jimi's spirit as you could get. Enter Uli Jon Roth, Scorpions axe man(where I first heard his playing on the Tokyo Tapes live album)and felt the Hendrix vibes throughout and then taken to the max on "Fly to the Rainbow". I picked up the "Earthquake" Electric Sun album back in '79 and was stunned by some of the best virtuoso and technical guitar playing I have heard in awhile. If you you love that Hendrix sound, Uli delivers the goods and puts a smile in your ears. From the opening track "Electric Sun" to the closing title track of "Earthquake" Uli Jon Roth paints a melodic soundscape of guitar "meisterwerk" that would influence the next crop of rock guitarists to come in the 80's. This album is an instant guitar hero classic and it takes you to another level. The only downside are the vocals but they'll grow on you and don't take away from his monster guitarwork. Keep your rap and alternative...and give me a real musician, a stratocaster and a stack of Marshalls and I'm one happy rock n roll camper! Rock On brothers!"

"It's amazing that I can give this album 5 stars even with the sub-par vocals of ULI ROTH. He is probably still the best all around musician and may be one of the greatest guitarist to breathe. Any fan of his should hear this cd. Unbelievable guitar work just like the previous records with the scorpions, only with a different feel to the songs. I bought this record as part of the 3 cd set 'from here to eternity'. A must for ULI fans."
