Customer Review

on 21 April 2010
I bought this album with some trepidation having thought 'Jeff' was one of Beck's weakest albums but I need not have worried. Completely different and astoundingly so, this is an album of wonderful extremes from the full shred of 'Hammerhead' to the achingly beautiful 'Elegy for Dunkirk'. If it is marred at all it is by the voice of Joss Stone who seems to be trying to do a very poor impression of Tina Turner. This is almost made up for by the stunning voice of Imelda May who, as Jeff himself points out, deserves a much wider audience.

The substantial use of orchestration as well as an opera singer may not please the Jazz-rock fans but for me it works superbly with Jeff's guitar perfectly attuned to the overall sound.

It is also one of those albums which gets better with every play. It is a very brave and bold statement from a guitar legend who refuses to be categorised - well done Jeff it is a truly astonishing album!
