i can de­stroy ear­mu­sic

Most of you will be fa­mil­iar with Paul Gil­bert from Mr Big and Racer X, as well as clin­ics and demon­stra­tions at gui­tar shows over the years. Any who have seen him will agree that he’s a great en­ter­tainer as well as a phe­nom­e­nal player. And there’s plenty of that en­ter­tain­ing qual­ity on this lat­est al­bum. There’s a sense of hu­mour to his lyrics and even his gui­tar work makes you smile be­cause he’s just so darned good! He cov­ers most styles but it’s his speed and ac­cu­racy that never fail to amaze: just check out the dual-tracked ti­tle song with its sur­prise end­ing and eye-wa­ter­ing pace. This is Paul’s 18th solo al­bum, yet his songs al­ways sound fresh and up­lift­ing and he’s got a great voice too – prov­ing that some peo­ple are at the front of the queue when raw tal­ent is given out! This is an in­spi­ra­tion to all gui­tarists, re­gard­less of mu­si­cal lean­ings, so make sure you sam­ple its many de­lights.
