Well this a terrific CD. Robin Trower playing here is superb. The feel of the album is pretty laid back, but I feel this brings out the best in him. There are lots of great songs here as well as guitar. The openening instrumental track even has lush strings on it and it works. So many highlights here and one is definitely 'Once the spell is broken'such amazing guitar tone as throughout. There is also the added bonus of hammond organ on a couple of tracks and 'Time and Emotion' is another stand out track with emotive guitar playing.
The Detailed sleeve notes tell of the recording sessions and how he got the sound he wanted.
On this album Robin sings himself. I love Davey Pattisons voice on previous albums as its similar to the late great James Dewar. RT chose to sing here himself as the register was not quite right for DP. while RT's vocals are not great they sound fine in the context of the songs. But of course we mainly listen to to RT for the guitar playing and he is on top form here.
I have all of his albums and this one is certainly one the best in ages.
So if you love quality guitar with loads of feel buy it, you won't be disappointed. Five stars as the guitar playing seals it and great songs too.

For Robin Trower's fine guitar playing and vocals provided by the late James Dewer,
no Robin Trower album will ever achieve the brilliance of Bridge Of Sighs.
Nevertheless, if you recognise great guitar work when you hear it, then this album will not disappoint you.
Each track has been well worked and yet again, this is another fine example of Robin Trower's brilliance.

I like instrumental tracks more than sung ones and this album does it for me on this account. But I have to say what a fine recording Livingstone Brown has made, the beautiful tones of the stratocaster are so easy on the ear and Robins vibrato and string bending is superb and very well supported by the strings and organ on several tracks. This is Robin reaching out and trying new ideas and subtly blending them with his old style so you hardly know that you are listening to something fresh. My favourite tracks are "Wish you were mine" "As you watch each city fall part 2 " "sleeping on the moon" "Time and emotion" and "Find a Place" As to Robin singing on this cd I like it, and it does sound like he has been having singing lessons, his vibrato is much improved.
A great album a great improvement from that awful one he did with Jack Bruce.

As noted the guitar playing is beautifully considred and expressive. It's curious that guitarists in particular labour under the impression they can sing however, and Trower's vocals drag the songs back, bringing them flatly earthwards. It's a curiously dispiriting experience. One reviewer says "you don't buy a Robin Trower album for the singing but for the guitar playing" or words to that effect. I disagree - music is about ensemble playing and the experience is of listening to a whole musical expreience working together, not just elements of it. Why hobble yourself by employing less-than-par singing? Would he have employed a less than par drummer, or less than par bass player? Hubris! Ego! He's got nothing to say vocally but tons to say with his playing.

I read a review about this being Trower's best album since "Bridge Of Sighs". This created a false impression on me because I thought it was to be as rocky. It isn't. It's nearer to "In City Dreams", possibly on a par with "Caravan To Midnight". I was hooked in with interest, following the opening three tracks and their differant styles, listening to the band back Trower exceptionally well. Trower's guitar work, as ever, is brilliant, but the album as a whole and on a second listening is a tad too laid back for me.

This album is one of Robins best, a throw back to the days of his much loved "Bridge of Sighs".It is well thought out with songs rich in mood and talent. Better still the man himself takes the vocal credits and, of course, a guitar tone to die for! Brilliant!
If you love BoS you will certainly love WLB

Its quite boring for Trower. Twice removed from his earley stuff which was fantastic. He is still good live though and can still rock hard at his tender age.

Today Robin Trower must be one of the most underrated guitarist in the world. In the 70`s he made 3 great albums and excellent live recordings. For me, he was right next to Jimi so I`ve been a huge fan ever since.
"What Lies Beneath" is a good album but ofcourse it`s not "Bridge of Sighs" or "20th Century Blues". My favorite is "As You Watch Each City Fall", a great song that has Jimi all over it. Great guitar playing. Robin Trower is not a good singer but his kind of a spooky way of singing/speaking the songs is ok . I`ve always been for the guitar.
It`s definately not his greatest album but worth buying.
