    Jeff Beck is my favorite amongst the still living members of the Rock Guitar Gods Club. (Jimi will always be King, IMHO!) JB has always continued to grow, never resting on his laurels or going backward into blues like some of his contemporaries. He began a journey with his groundbreaking album "Blow By Blow" into the jazz-influenced rock fusion world that continues to this day. His hand technique is light years ahead of most "rock" guitarists. His band line-up is constantly changing. This line up is a return to his rock roots, with his progressive approach to the guitar and a female-driven band. it is very contemporary RAWK with excellent guitar work by one of the Masters! If you like your Rock loud and raucous, this is a great choice. Really excellent vocals and lyrics, too!

    While some may take issue with the addition of a vocalist( or the vocalist herself) there is never any doubt as to what we're listening to. This is first and foremost a JEFF BECK ALBUM!!! And what an album it is. Political and social commentary run through the entire album. Unheard of for any kind of a JB album. You make your own call as to the validity of all that. But, at the very least, this shows that even at 72 he is not afraid to chart a new course for himself. And then there is the guitar. Are you kidding me!?!? The range of sounds and the emotions his guitar conveys is mind boggling. He goes from some of the rudest and crudest sounds a guitar is capable of making, to some of the most melodic and angelic lines imaginable. To be able to express himself equally as well through such a range is an ability that I find almost inconceivable. Great sounds abound! A must buy!!!

    I have practically everything Jeff Beck recorded over his 50+ year career. You never know what to expect with a new recording. Here, he works with a new songwriting team (vocalist Rosie Bones and rhythm guitarist Carmen Vandenberg), but no keyboards. The result is a mixed genre crunchy album with excellent guitar work, but no overindulgent soloing. I just saw the new touring outfit a few weeks ago and the new songs sound great live, too. I can't recommend this enough to Jeff Beck fans and guitarists.

    One of Jeff Beck weaknesses (he doesn't have many!) is the quality of material on some of his albums. The playing exceeds the level of the songwriting. Plus for me I get a little bored of all instrumental albums. Here he is joined by girls from the group Bones UK. They inject a needed energy to the songs. Rosie Bones sings topical lyrics with passion and sass. Beck rises to their level of energy. Great to see a man 50 yrs into his career still growing and pushing forward. Play it loud!

    I've been a fan of Jeff Beck ever since I heard 'Blue Wind' when it was actually getting radio play (and yes, 'Wired' is better than 'Blow By Blow'...). Skip forward to today and it's almost inconceivable that he's 72. His music resonates like that of a young person, and his guitar skills are as dangerous as ever. Not to mention his status as a mentor to a number of EXTREMELY talented musicians, especially Tal Wilkenfeld (no, she isn't on this release). Buy this. Really. Now.

    You will really like this CD if you enjoy searing guitar solos and a more contemporary sound than what you are used to from Jeff Beck. It has been six years since his last studio album and you can see how he has grown with music that works for today's audience. It is rather political but I like the fact that you know where he stands on issues instead of leaving you guessing. Highly Recommended !!!!

    Jeff Beck is back in the power trio format that has served him well over the years. And he's also playing guitar God again. This is easily one of Beck's overall better albums. The female bassist/vocalist has a bit too much of a cockney accent in her singing voice but it doesn't get in the way. Great songs, great playing. It's good to see Beck over his techno phase. Hope he keeps this band together for a follow up.

    Loud Hailer... hmmm. I didn't like this album very much. I think it was the line up with the singer being the biggest distractor. I bought this album without doing an audio preview - lesson learned, don't buy without listening first! I like Jeff's instrumental albums much more. I thought the singer was a drain on the energy and just didn't add anything to the songs.
