I didn't know Eric Gales from Adam until a friend invited me to go to a live performance and I was blowed away. There was only about 15 people there at this small club so I got a close personal view. His music was fantastic and he had a down to earth personality that just warmed everyones heart. The very next day I ordered this CD and guess what, every track is a gem. Great Lyrics, great bass guitar and drums, great vocals and GREAT guitar playing. I'm a musician and I play guitar and I played bass in the pass so I know. Take it from me. Forget the other review that said the songwriting was weak. Eric is a gifted musician and I hope he gets his day in the light that he soooo much deserves.

Eric Gales' second effort, despite its characteristic "attitude", suffers the same malady afflicting all guitar shredders, from Satriani, Vai and Johnson to Dweezil Zappa and Chris Duarte -- poor songwriting. When your whole act is an excuse for a guitar solo, songwriting and lyrics suffer. Gales' first CD may be his best ever, a shame for a first effort. But he is in good company. (The artist formerly known as) Prince and David Bowie each have had only one great album in their long careers -- Purple Rain and Let's Dance.

A stunner!Faithful to the Jimi Hendrix tradition Eric Gales displays guitar pyrotechnics with soulful vocals from the Gales brothers;check out the imposing'Paralyzed'and the atmospheric 'Angel of the Night',also the bluesy'God Only Knows'.A diamond in the rough.

HASH(0xa66fa960) out of 5 stars .....from one musician to all the others.....and beyond. Feb. 23 2003
By Scott Wharton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had the distinct privelidge of witnessing the awesome power of The Eric Gales Band back in the Fall of '93 in a nightclub called Rockefeller's in Houston Texas. It was During their tour for this Album. I had never heard of them before at all and one of my buddies I was there with made the comment that Gales was only 18 years old at the time. An all black band finally hit the stage sporting two bandmates(brothers) who played left handed guitar. I was right next to the stage so I was able to see every note that was played and their sound system was flawless. There were many famous faces there that night after the last "101 KLOL Anual Rock'N'Roll Auction" for needy Children so I wasn't the only serious musician who was blown away by Gales and his band. I recommend this album to any one who really loves to hear an excellent mixture of power, speed and R&B; not to mention some of the most soulful lyrics and vocals that you will most certainly find emotionally stirring.

HASH(0xa66fa438) out of 5 stars 2 Blasts In A Row... Jan. 5 2003
By WILLIE A YOUNG II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While his bands' debut gave them a lot to live up to, The power trio, Eric Gales Band proved more than able to follow up their stunning first LP. "Paralyzed" is a highlight of this assured sophomore set, but the real gem here is a great cover version of The Beatles "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" that doesn't just copy the original, but injects some real blues and fright into an already terrifying classic. A Job Well Done.

HASH(0xa65df120) out of 5 stars A solid sophomore effort by a young Eric Gales!! Feb. 22 2012
By Baberufus - Published on Amazon.com

Eric G. was only 18 when this CD was released in 1993, I believe, but his guitar playing is already top-notch by this time! You can easily hear a blend of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Hendrix, and Eric Johnson in his soloing, and Eric in fact lists each of those greats in his liner notes when thanking the ones who influenced him as musician. Great playing throughout, along with a fine rhythm section performance in his power trio band! Bassist Eugene's vocal style has a little more power than Eric's, so his vocal contribution also enhance the musical quality of these tracks. Eric's singing is still good, of course, and in fact his singing sounds a little clearer on this CD than it does on his more recent material.

The only real gripe I have is that the guitar solo on the title track is buried by a bunch of vocals--during the main guitar solo in the middle of the song--that was dumb. Just my perspective, but some of the tracks have a bit more "polished" sound with over-produced and over-tracked vocals, kind of like Toto...but it still sounds good, nothing really wrong with it...I myself just prefer the "rawer" sound of Eric's more recent CDs.

The real showpiece of this CD is the cover of the Beatles' "I Want You (She's So Heavy)". Fantastic!! As you might expect, at end of the song where the Beatles' own version is nothing but that arpeggiated figure repeating over and over, Eric lays down a KILLER solo on top of it to finish the song...a great version!!

So overall...a MUST HAVE for all Eric Gales fans, or any fan of quality blues-rock!

Eric Gales is one of my favorite guitarist. This album, his second, is just great from start to finish. If you want to listen to a great guitarist that you have never heard before give him a listen you will become a fan.
