5 stars For those who maybe don't know Colin Tench, I should say that he is a very talented and skilled musician, who is involved in various bands and projects, such as Corvus Stone for example. I knew Colin and his skillful guitar playing from his previous works with Corvus Stone, but this solo album came as a surprise to me. I have no intention to get into details for every song, because to be honest, 99% of the times I just put the CD and let it play. It is one of the best releases of 2016 without a doubt, and that is proven by the No.1 position at the Prog Archives albums chart with the best releases of 2016. As Colin told me a couple of days ago when we were talking on Skype, one of his most beloved bands is The Beatles, and that is something that is rather obvious throughout the album. One can find enough influences by The Beatles among a few other bands, like Pink Floyd for example. The song Can't See it any other way sounds like it was taken out of The White Album, and the small passage of ''Because'' at the start of Something new, Something old? makes me chill every time. There were many musicians that participated in the recordings, so further than Colin and the 6 musicians that worked on this album, there are also 16 more that helped as guests; playing a very big variety of instruments, like flute or violin for example. But further than each person's personal taste in music, the important thing is that Hair in a G-string is a well-structured album, with emphasis on the details. And you know what? All these simple and small details are making a big difference finally. Based on the 6-7 times that I listened to the album so far, these are my most beloved songs: Hair in a G-string Part.1, Can't See it any Other Way, The Sad Brazilian, And So Today, Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Screwed, and the fantastic Liza's Waltz with full orchestral arrangements, that is a bonus track. The album is available for download on the artists Bandcamp page, but further than that it will be available in CD near the end of November. Give yourselves a favour, and buy this really beautiful album! You will not regret it! Highly Recommended! My Rating would be: 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. P.S: Because I can't rate it with 4.5 stars, I will give 5.0, in order not to downgrade the very good ratings the album has so far. Thank you for reading this. :-)
