When I read about this project I felt a little trepidacious.. I wasn't a particular fan of Rory, although I knew who he was and actually bought the compilation "Big Guns" a few years ago, but for some reason never really listened much to it. Having taken the plunge I was pleasantly impressed when the package arrived, a hardback book cased 3 CD package with a very well drawn and scripted graphic novel. Really though its all about the music, and that is what makes the project. Listening to the words of the songs its clear that Rory drew some graphic novels with his writing, and the idea to combine those with a story is genius. Listening to the novel part of the CD its fantastic the way that the song titles and their various characters fit into the story. The songs themselves are also fantastic, while guitarists like Clapton and his like get all the plaudits Rory remains pretty much a hidden gem - hopefully projects like this will thrust his legend into the public eye where these songs belong. The extra live disc also gives his songs a bit more "oomph" - and Im not usually a fan of live stuff (on record), but done like this - it's excellent.
