Album Review

Electromagnets are best known as the launching ground for Eric Johnson, one of the great guitarists of the '80s and '90s. Johnson was known for his clear tones and amazing technical skill — two things that are apparent on the Electromagnets' first and only album. The group followed the path of such trailblazing fusion groups as the Mahavishnu Orchestra, creating an amalgam of rock, jazz, blues and the avant-garde. Unlike many of their peers, the Electromagnets were loose, letting themselves bend the beat and have fun. As a result, their album is more enjoyable than most '70s fusion records — even when they venture into prog clichés, or when vocalist Chris Geppert becomes overbearing, their musicianship pulls them through. And of those musicians, Johnson stands out with his crystal clear guitar and tasteful solos. His presence makes Electromagnets the curiosity it is, but also makes it more than an odd historical item.

Customer Reviews

They are confused on the review

The reviewer has confused this with the other Electromagnets release. This one does not have Chris Geppert aka Christopher Cross on it as the first Electromagnets album had him singing backup on one track. He was never the singer for this band. This is a rawer set of songs than the first record and really represents the band more than anything other than the two live tracks added onto the first CD release of the original 1975 release. This one was also not released in 1975. It was recorded in 1976 but never released until 2005. Needless to say it is a must for guitar & jazz/rock/fusion fans.
