5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece - my most frequently played album 24 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Definitely TYA's masterpiece, issued 1970. It's probably my most frequently played album of all times, still after those 40 years. I still feel the smell of the parties of the seventies in Prague, dancing e.g. to Think About the Times. The album has an extremely unique atmosphere (yes, also tired in a way, maybe frustrated, but also full of tenderness and love in Alvin's voice and music as well, subdued lights mandatory), which is only partially captured on other TYA albums (e.g. Cricklewood Green, Space In Time). The totally happy tune, She Lies In the Morning, is really great (maybe adding some genuine British /Liverpool?/ inspiration to the mixture). Alvin's guitar solos are at his best: more "homogenous", with greater than ever melodic invention. In addition, the perfect musicianship of the other 3 members of the group ought to be mentioned (Leo Lyons-bg, Chick Churchill-kb, Ric Lee-ds). Watt heralds the great change from the music of the sixties to the actual modern rock sound of the seventies (what a progress if you compare it to their pure R&B debut some 3 years before). Just listen to the brief shift into a fantastic jazzy improvisation (Gonna Run), years before the climax of the jazz-rock era. There are also heavenly rocky improvisations (I Say Yeah, She Lies In the Morning). The value of Watt is probably in its very specific sound that has brought together divergent inspirations, from blues, jazz to hard-rock. Watt is an extraordinary achievement, the result of previous years of playing the blues (and I guess they must have had experience with jazz as well). Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing.....TYA 17 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Watt was my first ever introduction to TYA and it pleases me to now have a copy on CD , this band had a record along with Argent for the amount of north American tours they undertook. But the albums were always really fresh and interesting written nearly always by Alvin Lee guitarist vocalist and founded member, also once known as the fastest player in the west. this Watt has rock, rock n roll, fierce to delicate songs I love it all and if you stick your neck out and buy a copy the next one to get should be A space in time. If you want the beat blues rock then dip into a earlier album like Cricklewood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best ? 2 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
Watt is not the favourite album of TYA fans. It is a fact. But not for me. I am a French TYA fan for ever (hello Leo, Ric, Chick and Joe)and even Alvin Lee if you read that.
I don't know why, but "watt" is something special for me I can't explain.
perhaps because I discover TYA with this album. I am sure it the reason.
The cover art work is wonderful, very 70s, as "ssssh" or cricklewood green"
In this times bands made wonderful LP covers. (where do these times deasappear?)
My favourite song is "i'm coming on" . Simple, fresh, rock, with one of the best fantastic solo ever made.
But others are simply great, natural, uncommercial (sic...),as "gonna run" and all others.
A free one, a good one, a great one. The best you've done my friends. For me. of course.
It is still my favourite today.
Patrick, (France)

sorry for my english. hope you understand what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy sleeve 3 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
Watt a weird cover Watt a fantastic album. looking back its an assortment of styles we have folk, rock. r&b a real eclectic groove and it all flows so well. Alvin once infamously known as the fastest guitarist in the west gives us plenty to chew on here. all four members do them self proud especially the flowing almost jazzy bass runs from Leo. what with the vast amount of American tours this band made it is amazing to think they ever got in to a recording studio and came up with such great stuff...brilliant indeed. Watt is my favourite TYA album
