Gary Moore - Back to the Blues
Over the years, Gary Moore has been at home pacing the stage with Thin Lizzy, playing rocky fusion with John Hiseman's Colosseum, or pouring out his heart in one of the many versions of the same minor ballad that he keeps penning (represented here by "Picture of the Moon" and "The Prophet"). With this CD (something of a sequel to Still Got The Blues, his last return to his roots) he reminds us of all that's best about British blues: genuine feeling, great tone, and an energy that puts the "electric" into electric guitar. Those that miss the fire of Eric Clapton's Bluesbreaker years will find it here. "You Upset Me, Baby" shows that Moore can swing, and if some heavy metal plod occasionally seeps into tunes like "I Ain't Got You" or "Looking Back", we can forgive him: in a world blighted by irony and cold craftsmanship, this man's honest passion is something to be treasured --Michael Ross

Having been more experimental with his last 2 albums, Dark Day In Paradise and A Different Beat, this new album is pure blues/rock at its very best.
There are 10 songs, 6 originals.
The album opens with Enough Of the Blues which starts as a very quiet old style Robert Johnson blues before exploding into a loud, driving, typical Gary Moore blues which begs you to turn your hifi up!
Next up is the BB King cover which Gary does very well, You Upset Me Baby is a good song in the style of Since I Met You Baby and Too Tired from the previous After Hours and Still Got The Blues albums. Complete with brass section too, an uplifting blues number!
The next song, an original, Cold Black Night has a nice lyric and good riff. It is a good song with Moore demonstrating his Hendrix style guitar licks in the middle of the song. Alright!
Next up is a highlight for me, showing Moore's skill for creating atmosphere and emotion, Stormy Monday the classic blues song is excellently played. Moore plays some great licks on this song with showing out off like he sometimes tends to do when playing slow paced numbers. In deed the new album has Gary playing more relaxed and focused on hitting the right amount of notes and playing notes not just for the sake of it. He seems to have matured with regards to playing blues!
Ain't Got You is next up and is a cover with good riff, good lyrics. Driving rythmn.. cool!
Picture of the Moon is the 6th track and is penned by Moore, similar to Still Got The Blues and Parisian Walkways. It is a nice ballad, laid back, romantic song, but not quite as good as its 2 big brothers!Read more ›
Having toured extensively throughout the UK in the last 2 years this album captures the raw power and craftsman ship of a man on top of his game.
Not only is this a cracking album,the live performances of the man demonstrate the ability to produce the same quality of playing and singing live.
Gone have the experimentations of Dark days and a different beat but more of the Blues with hard edged rock delicatley balanced which was captured so well on the still got the blues album but until now missing for too long.
A good album and first class extensive UK tour not an overproduced/overmarketed bi centenary album with a couple of tour dates thrown in to keep the massess quiet.
An absolute must for all rock and blues fans.
Keep it up Gary Moore : Don's miss Sheffield off the venues!!!
A good listen although not quite what I expected.
