I caught this duo some time ago on the Jules Holland show, and made a mental note..."Buy this album!". I didn't until recently, and it's been my loss. What a breath of fresh air it is. I can't say I was even aware of Rod and Gab until Jules' programme, but they've got a few albums out now, and they're hugely popular live performers all over the world. A quick look on Wiki confirms they've been together about 14 years, and started off busking in Ireland as they were told that's where street music is really appreciated. I can't argue with that.
Whichever version of "9 Dead Alive" you buy (I believe there are 2...the deluxe includes a vinyl version and specially commissioned "art" prints) it's fantastic value...I bought the basic one but it still includes a DVD which features quite a long "live" performance, studio performances of several tracks from the album, and some quite difficult, broken-english commentary from Rod and Gab. The only drawback is that the double gatefold cardboard sleeve is a bit unwieldy with the two discs AND the booklet containing the stories behind each track. Not enough to complain though.
The concept of the album is interesting...9 people (all dead) who changed the world and whose legacies will remain forever, inspired the tracks. Yes, it's a bit deep, and sometimes it's hard to pick up the link through the music, but it's a great idea, and it can even lead to some interesting Googling to learn more about the subjects.
Anyway, the music...
Well, if you like your guitarists to be blonde rock gods straddling the stage with solid body electrics strapped on, playing power chords through distorted pedals and amps, and singing dodgy harmonies, you're in for a shock.

Having seen them in a very enjoyable concert at the Royal Albert Hall I ordered this album the following day.
It's good - Gabriela's 'percussion' technique on her guitar is pretty much unique, but ultimately all the tracks on the album feel a bit 'same-y'.

Good, but a little bit 'samey' in some numbers as previous recordings, but, still a very good album.

Certainly not their best!
This is ok, quite bland and not the fabulous vibe of their first 2 albums. Many songs are very tame.
It's also a short CD, 9 songs total 41 minutes. CD doesn't come even in a proper plastic CD case, only card envelope.
It's pleasant listening for sure but reading the other reviews which made me buy it I expected it to superb. Not so!

This album is amazing, very deep in the way songs were written and played. Yo can hear rock riffing but on acoustic guitars and with the touch and flavour of two great musicians. It is very different from previous albums but add another item to their excellent catalog. Highlights are the soundmaker, misty moses, sominium, and the russian messanger

Never heard of this duo before catching them on a Glastonbury broadcast last month. Fantastic guitar, including quite unbelievable percussion sounds using the body of the guitar. Will buy more, and attempt to see live at some point..
