What should've been
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the UK, the market for virtuoso guitar oriented rock is pretty specialist and so it's only by chance that I got hold of a used copy of 'High gear' through Amazon, 13 years after its release. Until now my knowledge of top class shredders was limited to better known acts that made the cross over to the UK. I'd never heard of Greg Howe until a couple of weeks ago. This is a top quality 'party' rock album in the vein of Van Halen DLR period. Unlike dark and dreary grunge and nu-metal, it has loads of energy and the solos are top flight shreddings, but without being the sort of self-indulgent widdling you find on albums of the neo-classical instrumental variety. Although Al Howe's vocals are more than a tad reminscent of DLR, they work. The bassist and drummer are no slouches either. Why this album never crossed into the US mainstream is a mystery to me."
