A real classic guitar virtuoso album,
This review is from: Erotic Cakes (Audio CD)
This album is one of the most impressive guitar albums ever made. It has really gorgeous songs in it, both complex and musical at the same time. I've also listened to guitarists like Michael Angelo Batio, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, and so forth. But Guthrie Govan is very versatile and capable of doing pretty much everything on the electric guitar.
Guthrie's music is not only interesting for guitar players though. The main instrument in his music is of course the guitar, but the presence of beautiful melodies and fine song structures makes this music overall great.
This album should be right up there with other guitar classics like "Passion and Warfare" by Steve Vai and "Surfing with the Alien" by Joe Satriani. This is due to songs like Waves,Wonderful Slippery Thing,Fives,Sevens, Erotic Cakes and Ner Ner.
