5.0 out of 5 stars Relentless Blues? 10 Nov 2010
By J. M. Green VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Why oh why is Eric Gales still languishing in a blues backwater? Beats the hell out of me - witness this album for yourself and see just how formidable a player he is -and his vocals ain't bad either.
I know that he's been compared to Hendrix over the years, but while that in itself is an "honour", Mr Gales is definitely NOT trying to cash in on the Hendrix commercial ticket, he just produces damned fine albums of which Relentless is just another excellent example.
Kicking off with a straight electric blues in the form of Bad Lawbreaker, we are soon into one of his solos which are played with such an attack that it is a delight for any guitar lover to hear. And it doesn't stop there, we get mid paced blues in the form of On The Wings Of Rock N Roll, together with some blues rock in Block The Sun and The Liar, together with some funk in A Little More Time, a sublime instrumental in Universal Peacepipe (which would do credit to the likes of Mr Satriani!) and the fun, rip off of ZZ Top's La Grange in The Change In Me.
All in all, a fine album which should proudly sit in any blues or blues rock fan's collection.
BUY!!

4.0 out of 5 stars definitely worth a listen 26 Dec 2010
Format:MP3 Download
A lot of people have said that Eric Gales is just a Hendrix copyist, and while I can sort of understand the comparison, this latest album shows him spreading his wings and developing his own style.

I really enjoyed the album, and it is presently on "repeat" in my car. Buy it, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...blues, funk and rock'n'roll... 8 Aug 2010
By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I'd never been convinced by the music of Eric Gales until he hooked up with ex shred king Mike Varney. Beginning with "Crystal Vision" and "The Psychedelic Underground", his last album "The Story Of My Life" was his best by far, as he managed to rein in his flashier Hendrix predilections, and concentrated on writing good songs.

The first couple of tunes on this record, however, and it seems like a bit of a step back. It isn't until the pace slows a bit on 'Block The Sun' that things fall into place, although even there, he has a tendency to over egg the pudding, with notes flying around like there's no tomorrow. Elsewhere, he gets a funky groove on in 'Make It There', which comes across like Lenny Kravitz on speed, and is a real treat.

However, there is a stack full of good tunes here, which will keep fans very happy indeed. Long time bassist Steve Evans is still in attendance but new boy Aaron Haggerty has arrived on drums and adds a rockier edge to proceeding. It's been a long, long time since Eric Gales was the next big thing, but if he keeps making records as good as this, then his longevity in the blues is all but guaranteed.

5.0 out of 5 stars PHENOMENAL! 4 Oct 2010
By Baberufus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was wondering how Eric Gales was going to top his last CD, "The Story of My Life," but somehow he did! This is definitely his best piece of work yet! A great mixture of straight blues and more modern blues-rock songs! His guitar chops and tone are KILLER! This HAS to be the best blues-rock album in the last 5 years, at least! The only other player who reminds me of Eric, style-wise, is Joe Bonamassa, but Joe is more eclectic, whereas Eric seems to concentrate more on blues and comes off as more of a "natural" bluesman than Joe. He throws some effects and little twists in his soloing, that makes you go, "Huh? How did he do that?" And the sound is TOP NOTCH. His drummer and bassist also deliver killer performances and are as tight as wallpaper! I love the sound of the drums--really punchy and in your face! Nothing is buried at all in the mix--a fantastic job by the sound engineers!

I've always thought that Eric's vocal ability suffered somewhat compared to his undeniable guitar virtuosity, but on this CD his singing sounds much better than ever--a little fuller, clearer sound to his voice--a fine job!

I'd love to see this guy live, but for some reason he never seems to be on tour--???? Hopefully he'll get on the road soon...

This CD is INDISPENSABLE for all blues-rock fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Blues/Rock CD 5 Sep 2010
By George Barker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is aptly titled. It is "Relentless" kickass, take no prisoners blues rock from the first note to the last. Yes, there is a Hendrix influence but there is so much more. It's funky, boogie, straight rock, and even a little psychedelia. The best blues/blues-rock CD I've heard in ages. Not one bad song. He co-wrote all of them, sings and plays killer guitar. This man needs to be heard. He is as good or better than anyone out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars the successor to Jimi 30 Dec 2010
By wjones14 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eric Gales has been putting out brilliant guitar albums for close to 20 years. His output was sporadic at first, but recently has picked up. His latest disc displays his full maturity as a player and singer. The comparisons to Jimi Hendrix are obvious - black guy playing hard blues on a right-handed Stratocaster left-handed - and rightly so. With SRV gone, Eric could well be the successor to the Hendrix style of guitar playing.

Relentless is indeed relentless if you are looking for hard blues rock guitar playing. There are 12-bar blues variations, combined with psychedelic hard rock (Block the Sun), funk (Make It There), epic slow-burning anthemic blues (On the Wings of Rock and Roll), and even a straight-ahead hard rock instrumental (Universal Peacepipe).

Gales even has a Jimi-like voice making the comparison even more complete. I would recommend any of Eric's albums, particularly Picture of a Thousand Faces, and That's What I Am. Relentless is another great guitar record from this guy, and as good a starting point as any for someone new to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal 10 Nov 2010
By J. Salch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every now and then an artist rises from the multitude of fine musicians alive today and distinguishes themselves as a true star and a force to be reckoned with, Eric Gales is that musician. Establishing his musical ability while still a teenager Eric had some tough times that followed. There is no need to go into his personal life, but on the worlds stage Eric's music shines, he is a true master of the fretboard and has brought back to music an element that has been missing for a long time; fierce musicianship, and epic song writing. Relentless should be a part of everyone who appreciates Blues Rock and fine, fine guitar playing with beautiful phrasing and chops to spare. Eric Gales is the real deal: 5 stars.
