'Session guitarist Neil Taylor has a glittering CV. From studio and live work with Tears For Fears and Robbie Williams to sessions with Tina Turner, Morrissey, Natalie Imbruglia and Chris De Burgh, he's clearly a versatile guitarist. That's reinforced by this, his second solo album, where Taylor offers a tour-de-force on acoustic, taking centre stage in an eclectic mix of hard-edged rockers, power-pop anthems and introspective ballads. Highlights include the aggressive 'Would You Love Me', the bluesy 'Silver Man', the intricate 'Chasing Butterflies', the delicate 'Shadows Fall' and stomping 'No God'. Considering he wrote, recorded and produced this himself, it's a valiant effort filled with rocking riffs on an acoustic.' --Accoustic
