TOP 500 REVIEWERon 12 May 2013
'You Had It Coming' is an astonishing piece of work.Combining elements of techno,heavy metal,blues and Indian melody this is an album of such irresistible punch and drive that it resembles a musical runaway freight train. A million miles away from the jazz rock of 'Blow by Blow', 'You had it Coming' impresses with its stripped down sound,disciplined arrangements and playing.Having little in the way of soft edges, this platter may be too energetic and single-minded some.But for others, like me, it's very energy and the sense of risks being taken, makes it required listening.

I loved the beautiful 'Nadia;where Jeff uses his whammy bar and volume swells to achieve a violin like fluidity on the guitar.The reworking of the old fave 'Rollin' and Tumblin''reminds us that it is possible to revamp old blues tunes without losing their essence. Guitarists seeking further thrills should look out for 'Loose Cannon'
yet another textbook example of how Jeff can wrench emotion and the most unlikely of effects out of a guitar.

At 37 + mins, not the longest album around, but it's all good stuff. Recommended.

Never bought a Jeff Beck album before, but I first heard 'Jeff' on Spotify and liked it very much, and after reading the reviews on Amazon of that album and this one I decided to buy them both.

This is a much more consistent set than Jeff, and it really astonished me that someone I'd always only ever associated with a song as ancient as Hi Ho Silver Lining could produce such a sonic tour de force that sounds so, well, modern. But it's just a great, great record. He's clearly an awesome guitarist, and not in that apalling virtuoso Steve Vai sense, but whatever he plays is totally in tune with the mood of the song, and they're all different in style and tone. It's exactly the kind of record you'd expect from a great musician who's not content to rest on his laurels.

Top notch stuff.

It is not easy to find new inspiring music when you feel you heard most. If you are in same situation as me, just get this one. I heard the album 4 times in a row, can not remember last time I did that. This is just music made in heaven. There are many good guitar players, but not many make good songs. This guy is my new Guitar hero together with Jimi Hendrix and George Lynch.

I love Jeff Beck but this album, for me, is very good in parts, excellent in others and over the top in others. Blow by Blow takes some beating. despite being 40 years old.

Quite simply: Mind-blowing. This guy has it all -- feel, edge, risk, dynamics, and damn big balls if this album is anything to go by! He continued the theme of "Who Else?" with his experimentation of live-meets-electro backing, but this time the playing seems even more inspired. 'Earthquake' sets the bar pretty high from the outset, sounding a bit like a revved-up Nine Inch Nails tune. Then we're into a stellar roll of four songs with 'Nadia' hitting possibly an all time Beck high -- fantastic beats and a touch on the geetar that sends shivers down the spine. 'Loose Cannon' has an almost elastic riff that sprawls and grooves whilst 'Left hook' wouldn't be out of place at an underground drum 'n' bass club in Brixton -- super-aggressive backing, super-aggressive chops. The album then rides out on a high, but toned down, note. A genius album by a genius man. Highly, highly recommended for musos and non-musos alike.
