3 stars I was so glad to hear that Jeff was putting a studio album out and frankly, couldn't wait to hear it. Well it was just released here in The States on Tuesday and I was there to scap it up.

First off let me say, if you are expecting anything in the form of tear it up shred, you will be dissappointed. This is not along those lines. If you are expecting anything in the vein of what he played on the Live at Ronnie Scotts disc 2 years ago, you may be dissappointed. This is not quite along those lines either.

But, what it is, is a fine collection of some traditional folk, swinging rock and beautiful felt and interpreted music offerring the listener a very enjoyable experience from a virtuoso guitarist.

Approach the music understanding that Jeff is a master of his instrument. Approach the music with the understanding that Jeff can make the guitar sing and croon. Approach the music that Jeff has an acute understanding of pitch bending and vibrato and uses it beautifully to tell a story. Approach the music understanding that Jeff Beck is a virtuoso player in any music and you will experience the man and the musician. You will experience all of his passion, fire and sometimes, nonchalant flippant comments all, in a very unique way.

Emotion & Commotion...I am neither blown away with amazement, nor dissillusioned to contempt. I am merely pleasantly satisfied to hear the man's expression on the guitar to make me think...'Yeah...Jeff Beck!'
