Product Description

Neil Taylor's star is only just beginning to shine in its own right, with its roots firmly planted in a career spanning three decades. As one of the UK's premier session guitarists, Neil has worked with an enviable array of artists, ranging from the likes of Robbie Williams, Tears For Fears, Rod Stewart, Natalie Imbruglia, Peter Gabriel and Tina Turner, to name a few. For the past six years, Neil has been a lynchpin in the Robbie Williams band, touring the world with him several times over. It is arguably this time spent touring with Robbie that turned Neil's mind to becoming an artist in his own right. "You end up thinking, what's next? Surely it can't get any better than this!" Neil adds. The highs and lows of this time in his life have helped to inspire his own music. His new album, 'No Self Control', is a gritty hark back at his career to date, and to the future that is yet to come. 'Just Walk Away' is the title track from this record, one that has gained notable appreciation among fans and critics alike. The bluesy hues of 'Blood From A Stone' draw the listener down to the depths of the dirty south, tacking another string on to Taylor's musical bow. This collection of songs utilizes all of Taylor's musical skill, masterfully combining rock, pop and blues throughout. Taylor collaborated with song writer Steve Torch to create this album, initially to create an instrumental guitar record. Torch subtly suggested that Taylor should sing, bringing to bear the contemporary, rocky record that you hear today.

This is a great, great album and is on my top playlist and will stay there for a long time yet. Neil Taylor is the distinctive white haired guitar player you may have seen on stage with Robbie Williams, but who has also played and toured with Tears for Fears, Morrissey, Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Peter Gabriel, Natalie Imbruglia, and many more.
Here he has gone solo in collaboration with renowned songwriter and musician Steve Torch who has written amongst others Cher's "Believe" and Kylie's "On a Night Like This", and has ensured there is a great lyrical quality to the album. Together they have produced a stunning album which I would recommend anyone should purchase.
Highlights of the album are the wondrous "Would You Love Me" and the powerful "Walk Away". Both "I Never Said and "Here is Comes" are also not to be missed and then turn the volume up high for the faster and rockier "Rewriting History" and the raw title track "No Self Control". However, there is not one track not to like as all have great lyrics, music and Neil's great guitar work.
This album has something for everyone .....BUY IT!

Having worked through Mendelessohn's violin concerto's into the early hours last night,I'm probably not Neil Taylor's obvious market. But then again, I like quality music, and this is quality pop/rock music. I'm playing it as I write and loving it, especially 'Don't drive my Car', 'Just Walk Away' (LOVE this one) and 'Do you Love Me'. And living close to Bath, I can't help but sing along to 'Everybody Seems to Know my Name', which is all about walking through that beautiful city. And I love that opening guitar work on 'I Never Said' (reminiscent of a Pretenders track).

The music is great and it's obvious that you have one of the world's top guitarists behind it. But, top or otherwise, being a guitarist doesn't make you a great lyricist. But Neil is also that. He has written one fantastic track after another... There is a common style and quality running through them while maintaining a individuality in each track and I won't be surprised to see, as this becomes a hit, that better known artists do covers of these. I also love the backing vocals - they are made even more special when you learn that these are sung by his partner Sachi and their gorgeous little kid, Johnny. When you see the videos of these songs (especially 'Do You Love Me')there is a heart-warming love that unites these three, an obviously very close family. As I sit here, I can't help but wiggle and tap to these tracks (and sometimes I can't sit any longer and just have to get up and dance to them!). For sure, they have become a nicely raunchy 'throw the windows open' breath of fresh air in my music collection.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, Neil is Robbie Williams' guitarist ...though, when he's got this much talent in his own right, it doesn't need to be said.

Not just Robbie Williams, I first heard of Neil Taylor in the eighties with Tears For Fears. He has a unique sound (which you can hear most clearly on Ride (RW with Kylie)) and it turns up again here, but it isn't just one sound. There is a great variety of songs on this album and it reflects the variety of musicians he has played with overs the years. My favourite song is Would You Love Me, great structure and a really original vocal. Top stuff by a REAL musician. Loved it!
