5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece, 14 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ah Via Musicom (Audio CD)
I'm going to shamefully admit that I got this album because I saw Cliffs of Dover on the list, which I had heard from Guitar Hero. However I wanted to check out some of his other work, so I took a gamble on this. I'm glad I did, because over the past 6 months it's been my main inspiration in terms of my guitar playing. Honestly this guy is just a genius, every song is a melodic masterpiece. From the first song, Ah Via Musicom,it's a brill intro, kicking into his famous Cliffs of Dover (which Johnson himself shamefully admits it took him no more than half an hour to produce!). Then rolling into my favourite off the album, Desert Rose. I just love every aspect of this song, from the tone to the structure, half way between major and minor. Other favourite songs on the album include Nothing Can Keep Me From You, Trademark, in fact, the whole album! He shows his versitility in this album with an acoustic piece, Song for George, and a nice country-blues style song, Steve's Boogie. It really is a killer album. And you'll be surprised to know that I'm not your stereotypical reviewer of it's era, but an 18 year old uni student, so it's not just for the old ones! Ha, it's going to be my mission to learn every song perfectly off this album :)
