If there is a better album then 'El Pistolero' this year then I'd like to hear it. Mick Brown is a real talent - he plays good guitar, has a great voice and is a fine songwriter. The album flows beautifully and successfully tells the story of the gunslinger (El Pistolero) who finally meets his match. My only slight criticism is that most of the really great songs come in the second half of the album, so it is a bit of a slow starter on the first few listens. Highlights for me are 'Dead Garden', the magnificent 'Scream in Silence', 'Hangman', the equally magnificent 'There's a Man', the poignant 'Until The War Is Won' and the pulsating climax 'Now I Ride'.
Brilliant.

This band are killer live! This set of tunes has grown on me but not as immediate as the previous set. Some interesting departures and I never tire of his voice. Old school grunge leanings can still be heard but the metal is pushing through and I found them even more metal live! Power trio making a massive noise, watch out the next offering could put them in another bracket if they keep improving!!

Tracer are one of the finest young rock bands out there at the moment and are building on the outstanding full album 'Spaces in Between' and the magnificent EP 'L.A.?'. They're on tour in the UK in June, my tickets are already booked!

The premise of writing an epic, 'themed' album is a brave one for the 'difficult second album' and Tracer, thanks mainly to more intelligent song-writing and some rocking guitars (Michael) and drums (Dre), almost pull off a classic.

My tiny issues with El Pistolero are that the bass (now that Leigh has left) seem to be too dominant & simplistic (session performer before Jett came on board?) and don't support the basic harmonies Tracer seemed to so effortlessly pull off with the first two releases. I also think that the album's theme perhaps limits the breadth that could have been explored without this Robert Rogruez's El Mariachi / cowboy spine running through and dictating mood.

In all though, Tracer's strength manages to prevent this becoming a novelty album and it is a very fine effort but for me, falls just a bit short of the first two...

You need this album !! It is one of the best cd's I've heard in ages. Not one bad track, it rocks from
begining to end. Have also seen them live and they are awesome.
The vocals,guitars are deep and amazing. Do yourself a favour,buy it, listen to it loud and enjoy.

Iblike the way they sound sometimes like Alice in Chains with a bit of Soundgarden vocally at times but still manages to sound current and fresh

No frills, seventies-based rock. No more, no less. Naff lyrics at times, but hey, let's rock. Look forward to seeing this band live.

Excellent, as always some tracks hit the spot better than others but this one of those rare albums that doesn’t have me hitting fast forward at least once when I’m listening in the car. I usually don't bother to review music but this is worth the exception,

Great album from the Aussies, love the Desperado influences and good mix of musical styles. Some nice riffs and the vocals are brilliant too, this band deserve to be heard as much as possible!

I love this! I had never heard of Tracer until I saw them recently and was amazed at how good they were. For a relatively unknown band they rock.
