4 stars This is my personal favorite output by this brilliant guitarist. While he is probably better known around these parts as a contributor to several great fusion albums like Gong's Gazeuse, the man has put out some nice solo stuff as well. This album has fantastic production, compositions and performance. Holdsworth's distinct tone and unbelieveable phrasing lead the way in this modern jazz masterpiece. Though when I say modern jazz, I am only referring to the time of its release; the song styles are very reminiscent of older jazz. And when I say masterpiece, I mean a solid album made by a great guitar player. So I guess instead of "modern jazz masterpiece" I should say "recently released album of solid material reminiscent of older jazz made by a great guitar player."

2 stars Beware: This is no prog masterpiece.

Instead, it's more of a minimalist showcase for Holdsworth and company to lay down some decent (but far from killer) jazz. The basic theme is that Holdsworth alternates between relatively simple jazz chord-mode and fast rips. There is consistently interesting drums by Novak, but the keys and bass are so sporadic that much of the time it's just guitar and drum interplay. If you really like improv, then this could be right up your alley. As a fan of structure and full symphonic sound, The Sixteen Men of Tain offers little of either.

It's customary in reviews to describe the songs, but the tunes on this album offer so little variety that they often are indistinguishable. Most start slow, build up moderately as the guitar and drums quicken, and die down again. Most are based on relatively familiar jazz progressions, but offer little in the way of melody. I would like to say that I enjoy San Onofre, 0274, and the title track the most, as they keep up the tempo and have the most variety, but it's also probably a function of their place in the track listing--as the album goes on, the songs just start to feel very similar.

With The Sixteen Men of Tain, you're getting plenty of Holdsworth and Novak, with minimal contributions from bass and keys. Although the guitar and drums offer very tight and enjoyable improvisational interplay, the overall lack of variety really drags this album down. Similar to the other jazz guitar greats (di Meola and McLaughlin included), technical skill and feel can't overcome a lack of talent from the rest of the band and lack of creativity in the songwriting department.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars The act of applying a specific genre to the music at which oneself aims might not go in Allan Holdsworth. And, the career of his music has an indeed long history. It knows the work of Solo that he announced and he will learn there was a change in posture and the situation without the compromise for music very compared with the history of the music as for unexpectedly few facts.

The change and the evolution of a little music character might be able to be discovered for his work in the 90's. The tune and the dash feeling with high quality of "Wardenclyffe Tower" and "Hard Hat Area" might surely draw the flow from "Secrets". And, to make the music character at which he aimed every time the work was announced at this time an embodiment, various musicians were appointed for the recording of the album. Of course, competing of the musician who had understanding for his music was done.

Man who had not shown the posture that compromised for his work in the 90's gave width to the expression of own music by competing with the member of Vinnie Colaiuta and Tribal Tech. However, his style became apart from others occasionally might if the technology and knowledge were improved for the method of his performance and it advanced. The listener in the world to say nothing of the style will agree. Therefore, he might already have challenged music in another area.

The work that reconfirmed the method of the root and the expression of the self in the flow that offered the work with a good tension was "None Too Soon" for his work in the 90's as for indeed high-quality music. The flow of Jazz Rock offered to the listener by "None Too Soon" was true that restructured the flow that he had indeed done before. He had accomplished competing with a variety of Jazz musicians before. It is guessed that "None Too Soon" was produced in the meaning that shows deference to the flow and rule. And, a few changes appeared to the method and the idea of his performance on the boundary of the album. The album is this "The Sixteen Men Of Tain".

The exploding performance to make the listener listen to a past work might changed shape a little through the whole. Extension of route shown by "None Too Soon". Or, how to make the idea and the sound to put width on music. Of course, he can perform as exploding if necessary. It might have an approach different from the current work in the album. Fact with width in expression method. And, the style and the character of the musician who appointed it to the recording of the album might also influence. It might be an element about which it intentionally thinks from the start for Allan Holdsworth's producing this album.

Gary Novak of drum player known on business of Chick Corea and Alanis Morissette. And, it is deceased Bass player's Dave Carpenter now. And, Walt Fowler of the trumpeter known by competing with Frank Zappa. And, Chad Wackerman that participates in the album only by one. The meaning and the theme of something might surely be concealed in this album. The performance of Allan Holdsworth unified to surrounding musicians while basically uniting the organization of Trio is offering the listener indeed splendid flexibility.

Especially, a peculiar anacatesthesia and a transparent feeling of opening "0274" and "The Sixteen Men Of Tain" might be surprised at a few changes from the style of his past performance. However, always width to music has extended and the style might always be consistent. The tune from this album is often performed for live of him. "The Drums Were Yellow" dedicated to Tony Williams is a tune that has an exactly mysterious sense and is advanced. The flow of this tune might be appearance of work to which the current man was related and the respect to the root. Flexibility that the melody with which a transparent feeling of "Texas" overflows doesn't exist in a past work either is shown. It might be a tune that along a consistent flow of the album also of "Downside Up" in which Chad Wackerman participated. It might be understood that the element of the album is consistent.

The method of performing Allan Holdsworth might have developed still another stage in this album. Communication of intention with musician to participate in recording and restructuring of root. Or, the fact into which the guitar synthesizer has been introduced. The music of man who creates it while repeating dismantlement and restructuring will not end. Even if music to which he often evolved is offered to the listener, the listener can enjoy "Spider Finger" at any time.

5 stars As a longtime fan of Holdsworth's work (solo and with other groups), I consider this album to be the finest hour of his solo recording career. There are no weak spots on the album. Great for Holdsworth fans and jazz guitar fans alike. Very mellow album yet technically complex and sonically ch ... (read more)

4 stars I 'm starting to "0274" a vivid example of Allan's post-None too soon period, with some reminiscences of atavachron at the beginning with sinthaxe.

5 stars I have several albums of Holdsworth ranging from the early 80's to now. I can see that his melodic bliss and his progressions have not changed much over his long career. I will say this though, the feel and passion that he portrays in this album is probably his greatest he has ever done. Wh ... (read more)
