FunkyMonk Posted May 25, 2008 Share Posted May 25, 2008 (edited) Now I didn't put this in the main GN'R section because it's not relevant to NuGNR at all. What a truly great CD, he really nailed it on this one. Not that his other albums aren't pretty great too, but this takes the cake. I have trouble getting through the whole CD though, but purely for the fact that I keep going back to the first 8 songs as they are so awesome. The first 5/6 songs are just perfect, after Breaking though they lose their momentum I think...but listening to them now I could be very wrong about that, they are still pretty stellar. My god what blistering solo's there are on this CD, not too much wanking on this one as compared to 9.11, he gets some cool 'emotional' solos here and they really really sound great. He's such a great guitarist (do I hear some awesome Brian May-esque soloing here? Yes I do) and he really shows his talents off on this little offbeat CD. Great tone too. Unlike a lot of other "virtuoso" guitarists solo cds he really doesn't get caught up in showing off how fast he can play, sure he throws in a few flourishes here and there, but when he does it only serves the songs. Everything on this CD is for the songs, he isn't showing off, and I think that's really cool. He actually makes real albums, if you know what I mean. Anyways, I really only created this thread so maybe a few more people might download it (or buy it obviously). This album is better than most of the NuGNR leaks IMO, he really just gets it all perfect on Normal. Get it, now.
