Album Review

Dave Weiner would like you to travel down this brief but memorable instrumental road that at times sounds like the soft, deliberate licks of Pink Floyd's David Gilmour on the leadoff "Andonova," which then evolves into something out of Mark Knopfler's soundtrack repertoire. From there, Weiner moves into the quasi-Primus category of hard rock, but with a thick slab of bass at times thanks to Philip Bynoe during "Long Run." Wide reaching and quite winding at times, the song settles briefly into a funky, light jazz-rock mold. Fans of Jeff Beck and Steve Vai would love this tune. "Monument Shine," meanwhile, is a tamer affair that slowly builds into a fine crunchy instrumental rock ditty with some soaring riffs for the wordless chorus. It tends to be a bit grandiose or regal, with the closing synthesizers giving it an ethereal, otherworldly feel. But it's still quite good. Fans of Creed would also enjoy the bombastic, hard-then-soft ebb and flow of "The Ghost of Denmark St." Weiner is an accomplished guitarist and his experience brings each of these songs to life, especially the folksy Celtic acoustic opening to "Tourmaline." The lone low point might be on the closing "Shove the Sun Aside," which has the guitars buried in the mix under a bland electro-rock or synthesized format. Weiner breaks out of the mire but it comes off as too little, too late.

Customer Reviews

Amazing Guitar Playing!

I first heard of Dave Weiner when I purchased the Steve Vai: Live in Astoria London DVD, and I have to say when he did his solos, he sounded like one amazing guitarist, so I checked out this album; such awesome guitar work! I haven't heard compositions like this since Vai and Satriani....Buy this album!

this Guy is rockin'!

I wondered for a while if this guy had a solo album, and heck yeah, HE DOES. This is a great solo album that i recommend to all those who love instrumental rock. Im just wondering when the next solo album is gonna come out?

This guy has talent.

This guy's great. I heard about him when looking into the music school I plan on going to, and found out he played for one of my favorite guitarists; Steve Vai. All I can say is if I get into this school, I hope I'm half as good as this guy.
