The title says it all, really. This is Sayce acknowledging his roots and reflecting the musical styles of the guitarists that influenced him. But unlike similar projects from other artistes, Philip has written much of the material rather than simply reworking classics. This approach works extremely well, and just listen to Out Of My Mind for some of the most atmospheric references to Jimi Hendrix we’ve ever heard. The heaviest part of the album comes in the shape of Fade Into You, a slow moody song which Sayce admits ‘comes from a sad, dark place’ in time that reflects his disappointment in the music industry. It’s very personal, showing him at his best and totally at one with his guitar. The music is as varied and wonderful as the material that his heroes produced, but given that extra Sayce mastery.
