SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Eclectic Prog Team
3 stars The Aristocrats is a heavy rock and jazz fusion power trio from around the world. The music here tends toward playful fun but incoherence. This is a series of lengthy albeit sophisticated jams full of incredible technical proficiency but lacking any memorability.

"Boing!. I'm in the Back" Distorted guitar and an odd rhythm adopt a quirky drive in this opener. Eventually, it boasts a bit of progressive surf rock. I appreciate the softer side the band takes on during the middle passage.

"Sweaty Knockers" Interesting title aside, the music here switches from aggressive rock to smooth jazz in a matter of mere moments. The guitarist gyrates through heavy metal shredding and country rock twang.

"Bad Asteroid" Velvety guitar begins this calmer venture. It's rather similar to "Walking the Plank" by Celtic rockers Bad Haggis.

"Get it Like That" This fourth piece stays in that laidback jazzy mode, but there's more of an urgency about this one.

"Furtive Jack" The band offers a degree of variety on this Caribbean-inspired excursion. It blends silky jazz with grittier leads. There's an excellent bass solo to be found here.

"I Want a Parrot" Slow and swinging, I find this lengthy tune to be somewhat similar to material from David Gilmour's On an Island. There's plenty of screaming guitar and grooving bass here to go around. The judicious drummer does an incredible job giving the music precisely what it needs, even if it means sitting it out for a bit.

"See You Next Tuesday" Initially of an avant-jazz-rock piece, this one tends to be harder to follow until it settles into a heavy groove upon which the guitarist has a field day.

"Blues Fuckers" This unfortunately titled piece is just all over the place and is only really bluesy in the beginning and the end.

"Flatlands" The final piece is clean, slow-paced blues that is reminiscent of some of Eric Johnson's smoother work- a placid ending to an otherwise frenetic album.

4 stars Freshly baked...

It's been six long years since Guthrie Govan released his debut album. With no solo activity since then and some disappointing collaborations with Asia and GPS I had almost given up hope on this phenomenal guitarist.

But then along came The Aristocrats, a three-piece instrumental outfit consisting of Govan, Bryan Beller on bass, and Marco Minnemann on the drums. The band was formed after a single performance at The NAMM Show lead to more gigs, and ultimately this debut record, which features three tracks from each member

Despite being entirely instrumental and containing elements of jazz rock, 'The Aristocrats' is not 'Erotic Cake Part 2'. The sound is quite different, it seems to be more focussed. In terms of guitar, there is not such as broad spectrum of styles, but it remains creative and engaging throughout. That's not to say that it's completely tied down though, I am reminded of Jeff Beck or Trey Anastasio at times, whilst the slower paced Flatlands has an Eric Johnson vibe to it.

Guthrie Govan has a reputation for his fast playing, and whilst there are moments of shredding on 'The Aristocrats', they come in tasteful, short bursts. But that's enough of Govan, I make it sound like the other two are his backup band! Far from it, Bryan Beller is an outstanding bassist who has played with the likes of Mike Kenneally and Steve Vai, whilst Marco Minnemann was about two hairs away from joining Dream Theater. Individually, they sit amongst the best musicians around, but its what they achieve together which is so important here.

The chemistry is just incredible, simple riffs lay the foundation for cohesive improvisation. At times busy, but never claustrophobic. Killer hooks aplenty, but not immediately accessible. The sparse interplay on tracks like I Want a Parrot is absolutely captivating, this is not something you can stick on in the background and hope to appreciate, it really demands attention.

The Verdict: An extremely fun, slightly challenging album that evolves with every listen.

4 stars If the cat got their tongue, it does not care, Aristocats could play without any vocals, and they will catch your ear.

3 stars The Aristocrats - both the band and the album - is certainly pure good news for all lovers of quality music. First of all, we now have an eloquent piece of evidence that the real music is alive and well, despite the ongoing efforts of the pop industry to promote the "elevator prozac", so apt ...

4 stars I'm a fanboy of Guthrie Govan. I think he is one of the best guitarists of our century, maybe the best. His melodies are so strong that you can't call him a shredder. On this album, he shows us that he can play like a true jazz guitarist. He's also so good at rock, blues and even metal. So he ... (read more)
