One of my top five Beck albums

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Give credit where credit is due: Jeff realized Flash was a dead end and decided it was a good idea to continue following his own eccentric course. The result is by far the most diverse album in his career, containing several stabs at different genres that fail occasionally but succeed more often. Really, the only experimental track that comes up short is the new wave-ish "A Day in the House", with gawky, David-Byrne like vocals - among the few on the album, though sadly some show up on the goofy toss-off title song, an advertisement for guitars set to a painfully obvious '80s rock beat. Much better are his stabs at... well, everything else. His lightweight, offbeat reggae experiment "Behind the Veil" is a definite plus; he cooks up two lovely ballads (the beautiful, intense "Two Rivers"; "Where Were You") that can be seen as modernized successors to "'Cause We've Ended As Lovers". Even more surprising is the fact that he succeeds with punk (the breakneck "Slingshot") and random '80s rock ("Savoy") in addition to the usual heavy blues-rock he just excels at in the first place ("Big Block", with a storming guitar riff - it takes a close second to "Two Rivers" as my favorite on the album). It's a shame that this gets overlooked as often as it does, in spite of a couple misfires - all the diversity makes it one of my favorite Beck records."
One of Beck's best records

"'Guitar Shop' is one of Jeff Beck's best records. It features the legendary musicians Terry Bozzio on drums (of Frank Zappa, U.K. and Missing Persons fame) and Tony Hymas on keyboards (he also appears on Beck's 'Who Else!' and 'Jeff' records).

And it won the Grammy award in 1990 for the best instrumental rock performace, and rightfully so. This is easily one of Beck's best records, and it's worth buying the album alone just to hear Bozzio and Beck jam together. Add Hymas' classic synth textures and classical style and you have a masterpiece.

Some of the highlights here are 'Guitar Shop,' 'Savoy,' 'Two Rivers' and 'Sling Shot.' But the whole record is great.

If you enjoyed some of Beck's earlier records like 'Blow By Blow' or perhaps even 'Wired,' than chances are you'll love this record. It's a great Beck record that's well worth buying.

Highly recommended for any Jeff Beck or guitar lover. This is a great album. Buy it, you won't be disappointed. ENJOY!!!"
