Before The Revolution
on 3 July 2010
Already owning a copy of the latest offering from Philip Sayce - Innerevolution - and finding that he's certainly way up there with the current crop of guitar slingers, I had to delve back to try out the Peace Machine album.
Now, while I find Innerevolution a stunning album that broadcasts Mr Sayce's place on the blues map, Peace Machine is an altogether different trip, reminding me very much of the music that was around in the late sixties/early seventies and BOY, is it good!!
Heavily influenced by the style of a certain Mr J Hendrix, this album blisters along with fine vocals, riffs and solos that are all well recorded with some particularly strong and heavy bass undercurrents - this really is a treat and it beats me why on earth this man is not yet better known. But if quality will always out, then Mr Sayce is going to be big indeed!
Certainly, the material is excellent and at over 1 hour 15 minutes long, it's also great value as there are no "fillers" here. So, if you like your music fast, brash and bluesy with just a tinge of Hendrix then this is definitely for you - BUY!
