Wes King's first, and still one of his strongest, albums.
(5 out of 5 stars)
""Motivation" was released some years ago as Wes King's first album, but it is still one of his best albums. In contrast to "Common Creed" and parts of "The Robe," this album showcases a scaled down band, and the guitarist in Wes shines through. Big fans of "Common Creed" and "The Robe" may not enjoy "Motivation" as much because the pop element is not so evident. But if you're a die-hard guitar fan you will definitely play this CD over and over trying to learn the licks. This is an extremely strong first album, and is really reminiscent of "A Room Full of Stories," the latest album from Wes. The songs on both albums are well-crafted and beg for repeated listenings."
