Customer Reviews

Kotzen at his near best if possible

For the previous reviewers, yes Richie was in Mr. Big. He joined after Paul Gilbert left. Check out tracks such as Electrified, Static, and the hit that Richie wrote and brought to Mr. Big called "Shine." In regards to this album, Get up, this is definitely something music fans will want to get. If I had to pick one song for someone to download and test the waters, it would be the first track, Losin My Mind. It displays Richies solo writing style, vocals, and playing perfectly. For any new listener, this is the CD to buy before you dig into Richies past work. Richie also played with Poison on the Native Tongue album and left there after. This was Poisons best album, song structure wise, with songs with Richies touch such as Stand. Get Up is packed with awesome songs, here is a break down: 1. Losin My Mind - Great rock song in general to set the mood of the CD. Richie definitely displays his talent to write great, straight-ahead, rock songs here. 2. Fantasy - Continues with the Rock vibe started on the CD and keeps you going. This is also a great song that displays another structure that Richie uses throughout his writing style. 3. Remember - Slows down the CD and lets the listener get a feel of how Richie can display emotion and feel in his songs. This is a great song that he plays live, as it has catchy lyrics, an awesome melody, and the chorus is something I wish I could have written. 4. Get Up - A perfect song to break back into the rock feel of the CD after a slow song like Remember. It picks up right away and gets you banging your head. Usually in the middle of a CD, it gets boring. Not for Richie! 5. So Cold - Displays Richies tonality and his playing as how you would hear on his previous albums. It gives you a good idea as to why this guy is awesome to see live, you can get into it! 6-7. I'll put these songs together as to not take up to much time and space. Both songs are great, but those following deserve to be mentioned instead. 8. Still – This is a song I find myself turning on if I can only hear one song before I go do something. It has a very catchy groove and lyrics that will get you singing the simple melody right away. 9. Never be the Same – Displays how Richie can write catchy, yet very basic song structures, and make them seem new. For any musician that is into modern rock, this is the song you should get. 10. Special – This is an incredible song, I can’t say enough to describe it. This has all the elements that you would expect from Mr. Kotzen. The melody and guitars are perfect. 11. Blame on Me – Great song to wrap things up for the CD, leaves on an up-beat note. Mr. Kotzen has changed my writing style and playing since I began to focus in on his material. If you study his playing, writing, and singing, you will discover a real musician. Too bad he does not have a large fan base in the states; he does go platinum outside the US though. Shows how crappie the US is in regards to musical taste. Rock on!

Get Up

Richie finally rocks out the way he did with Mr. Big. Of course, he has his funky side showing and a couple slow songs with a jazz feel. This is his best disc to my humble opinion.

Kotzen does it again!

One of his best albums in years. Upbeat, rocking, bluesy, funky. Chock full of his trademark guitar playing and brilliant vocals. Just buy this, seriously.

Guitar virtuoso Richie Kotzen burst onto the heavy metal scene as a teenager with a lightning-fast guitar technique.

DeVille, who was forced out of the band due to his substance abuse problems. Kotzen recorded 1993's Native Tongue with the group, and the album showcased...
