Vic­tims Of The Fu­ture (1983)

Total Guitar - - BACK TRACK -

6Moore’s flir­ta­tions with rock gui­tar hero­ism dur­ing the early 80s are of­ten re­garded with de­ri­sion by blues chin­stro­kers, but he re­mains up there with the genre’s great­est. The har­row­ing Mur­der In The

Skies in­cludes scorch­ing sec­tions of his live solo and is punc­tu­ated with chill­ing gui­tar recre­ations of a plum­met­ing plane, while the far lighter Teenage Idol fea­tures more as­ton­ish­ing tech­nique. Con­trast­ing the fret­board py­rotech­nics is the ma­jes­tic Empty

Rooms, a heart­felt bal­lad com­plete with a per­fectly-con­structed bluesy solo. While the mu­sic’s of its time, there’s a huge amount for any rock gui­tarist to glean here. Stand­out track: Teenage Idol
