Album Review

Guitarist Paul Gilbert continues to refine his peculiar Elvis Costello/Cheap Trick/Mr. Big/Racer X experiment that he introduced on King of Clubs. The odd mixture of styles is centered around his much-heralded guitar technique, which is prevalent throughout the session but rarely overused. His affinity for strong pop songs complete with catchy choruses prevents the session from being just for guitar fanatics. Songs such as the Green Day-influenced "Better Chords" and other pop numbers such as "Individually Twisted" (released as a single) and "Cut, Cut, Cut" demonstrate his ability to pen clever lyrics and adequately serve as a lead vocalist. There is plenty of frenetic fretboard work here, too, with selections such as "Let the Computer Decide" and "Attitude Boy Will Overcome" conjuring up memories of his early Racer X days. "Koto Girl" and "Whole Lotta Sonata" also feature some of the creative and adventurous guitar playing that he has become famous for. While this recording requires a unique taste, there is no mistaking that Gilbert is thoroughly enjoying himself on this energetic session. Of note, this recording was also released in the DVD audio format.
