CD Reviews

Stuck in a rut.
Lee Hagen | Delafield,WI | 12/25/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"My first purchase of a Trout CD. If not for one major annoyance, I would have given this at least four stars. The problem? This guys solos are stuck in a rut. Each song starts off solid with a bang, but when the solo comes and the hammer-ons/pull-offs are piled on top of another, it ultimately becomes unlistenable. Eventually, you begin to realize that all the solos sound the same and take their toll on the overall project. It's a shame, because overall the group has a good sound and Trout has a fine Strat tone. This CD had potential. Unfortunately, Trout hasn't quite figured out that sometimes less is better.Lee Hagen Delafield, WI mhagen1@wi.rr.com"
His best album (hard to believe he could get any better)
Roger Lewis | Chardon, OH United States | 01/05/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Critics have said that Walter Trout plays too many notes. True, there's a lot going on in his solos, with notes coming at you faster than you could imagine, but they do have feeling, and are clear. Almost nobody out there can play as fast as Walter, and none can play at that speed as cleanly. The rest of the band, although good, is clearly designed around him. Anytime you listen to a Walter Trout album, you are in the presence of true greatness, so allow yourself to be pulled in. This is not background music.If you buy this album, you will realize that I'm not over-stating his skill. There's a reason why he's quickly gaining in popularity in the States, and is a show-stopper at blues festivals. He and his band play long sets and with great intensity. God help the band that has to follow him.There's one sure way to decide ahead of time if you'll like this album. Do you like a harder type of blues-rock? If yes, ANY Walter Trout CD will be a great purchase. If not, his stuff may be a little too much to digest. Not for the easy-listening or Britney Spears crowd.I saw him play live in Cleveland recently, and it's even better that the studio recordings. Trust me, you have never seen someone work an electric guitar the way he does. It's a lot like watching Arnold, in the movie Predator, mowing down half the forest with an M-60.I practice all the time, but I'll be 150 years old before I can do the same things with my Strat."
