Schenker back to his Very Best,
This review is from: Bridge The Gap (Audio CD)
This is the album that Schenker fans have been waiting for and is probably the guitarist's best work since his solo career began in 1980. From the pounding opener `Where the Wild Winds Blow' to the closing number `Dance for the Piper', every song is a corker. Stand out tracks include the galloping `Horizons', the amazing `Lord of the Lost and Lonely' and the brooding `Black Moon Rising'. One or two tracks may need a few plays to appreciate just how good they are, but this album gets better and better every time it is played. Schenker has put together an exceptional band that is finally worthy of his talents and Doogie White, Herman Rarebell, Francis Bulchholz and the ever dependable Wayne Findlay are in fine form throughout. However, it is Schenker's stellar playing that makes this album great. He is possibly in the best form of his career and recent live performances testify to this. The word genius is too often used to describe moderate talent, but it is fully justified in Schenker's case. Buy this album, it is quite simply the most consistently brilliant piece of work Schenker has done since his UFO days.
