I can die a happy man now...



Just as I was getting sick of G.O.O.M.Y. (Get Out of My Yard - simply because I'd listened to it at least once every two day's since last August), S.F.B.A.D.R. arrived (all the way from Tokyo, Japan) to my doorstep this morning.

Long review short: GREATEST. ALBUM. EVER.

... or one of the greatest at the very least. Paul is just at the absolute top of his game on this CD. The main Metal-style track - "The Gargoyle" - puts bands like Dragonforce to shame. That doesn't surprise me though, because Dragonforce already sucked. What does surprise me is how Paul's style has changed on this album. It's still hard rock meets classical shred, but many of the tracks actually have a lot of focus on slower melody-based playing - kind of like Vai / Satriani.

Paul talks about this in the liner notes. His goal starting out was to just do more hard rhythms and cool fast leads like his last album, but then he started writing songs by making backings and recording himself improv. humming over them until he found melodies that he liked, then he'd figure them out on the guitar and spice them up with all the usual trimmings.

The result is 11 really fun songs with tons of great licks, new Gilbert-isms, and cool live effects! Great tone, great energy, and the most interesting playing Paul has ever recorded (it's flashy, but most of all it fits the songs better than ever)!

Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Check on Ebay, or:

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=IECP-10136

CDJapan is where I got mine. But it looks like they sold out of the first pressing (which comes with this great poster), so try to get it on eBay with the poster. It'll probably cost around $40.

This is a big step for paul I felt, really seemed to be more structured solos in here, maybe just more tasteful to my ear, really good though!

I received my copy yesterday and listened to it during the whole day. It is really an amazing record. For me, it's clearly one of Paul's best albums, with several incredible songs. I especially liked the Norwegian Cowbell, The Gargoyle, The Rhino and the title song, Silence Followed by a Deafening Roar. While trying to sleep this night, I couldn't stop thinking about the music, and I had to grab my iPod and play it to calm down. Still, it's important to note that this record is pretty different from the previous ones, with a slightly softer tone. Muris will have to make a third "in the style of Paul Gilbert" lesson I guess smile.gif
