4 stars This is the second of three straight releases where Jeff Beck blends his always innovative guitar approach to the rythms of electronica, industrial, and a little bit of hip hop for good measure. He actually put this album together quickly as it followed on the heels of "Who Else" and unlike his peers from the Yardbirds(the holy trinity) he has never rested on his blues laurels always pushing the envelope to new innovative heights. His guitar playing at points sounds "otherwordly" and yet he does a great job recreating Muddy Waters blues classic "Rollin and Tumblin" featuring a very talented Immogene Heap on vocals. She also appears on the very sexy Beck composition "Dirty Mind". Beck lets the guitar do the singing (or talking) for him on the rest of the album with stand out tracks being the industrial "Earthquake", the melodic "Rosebud" and three all very beautiful pieces "Nadia", "Blackbird" where he duets with birds(very cool stuff) and the album closer "Suspension" which is an absolutely beautiful piece of guitar playing. Highly recommended and I would give it 4.5 stars if I could.
