Album Review

This disc by the former Joe Ely guitar player Ian Moore bears little resemblance (other than the high octane quality) to the music he made with Ely, and owes much more to the Beatles and the psychedelic movement. You are still able to discern his underlying feel of the blues. This is a long leap, but it is a very positive broad step out. Moore either wrote or co-wrote ten of the 11 songs on the disc, and there are no weak ones; nor do they fall into any repetitiveness or follow any formula. The one song he didn't write is the beautiful Sam Cooke gospel tune "Wash Away My Troubles." His version is an absolutely gorgeous rendition that shows off the strength and dynamics of his voice and is one the highlights of the album. His are all strong songs about living, loving, and dying that have their own individuality; Moore evidently learned from Ely that storytellers in songs make them more memorable. Give a listen to "Diablito" (which he penned with Martin L. Gore) for a song that has a life of its own, and note that there is no sitar listed as being played. This is a disc that seems cohesive in its diverse elements and engages interest with repeated listening, and Moore is someone who seems to be growing each time he goes into the studio.

An Essential Album, and One of the Finest Live Ones As Well

Absolutely flawless from one of the most gifted as well as overlooked singer-songwriters around today. As a younger man in Austin, he was heralded as the next Stevie Ray Vaughn, only to reject that mantle, cut off his long hair, abandon the SRV stylings, travel, get the picture. What came out of this was far more than "the next Stevie Ray," as great and awesome as that would have been. He is tragically overlooked and/or ignored by the masses, the powers that be, and those who truly ought to know better. Check him out. You will be rocked as well as moved.

just another swing in a varried ballgame...

ian has tried a number of things over the years. this one sounds like he's trying the eric johnson method. in fact, a couple songs here sound nearly like eric johnson covers. but on the positive side. its ALL good music.

Doesn't Get any Better

This is one of the greatest live albums I have ever heard. Great album from a great musician. The arrangement of Angelyne with the horns is incredible.
