2.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointment, 28 May 2007
This review is from: Trust No One (Audio CD)
Considering the ability of Dave Navarro as a guitarist, I must admit, I was expecting a tad more from 'Trust No One', especially as it begins rather auspiciously.

The opening track, 'Rexall', is a well-worked piece which, after a few listens, works its way into your subconscious - in an entirely pleasing manner. Following this, 'Hungry' doesn't lower standards too dramatically, and is another solid rock song, however you get the feeling that Navarro, for some reason, isn't hitting top gear - he's holding something back! What's especially worrying is that the opening two tracks are actually the album's strongest pieces.

Many of the subsequent tracks are drab, forgetful and characterless, lacking in discernable colour and timbre. Navarro simply isn't flaunting his ability to the fullest extent, which is rather frustrating. Some tracks exhibit traces of inventive musicianship, such as on 'Avoiding The Angel', however these moments are fleeting, and, ironically, merely serve to heighten the album's general anti-climactic feel.

Overall, I'm bitterly disappointed by the dearth of quality on offer here, and would suggest that those interested in Navarro should pursue his work with Jane's Addiction, rather than wasting time on this uninspired claptrap.
