Andy Timmons - ‘Electric Truth’ review

Andy Timmons is a guitarist who has had significant success in the music industry for decades. He got his start in the late-eighties glam rock band Danger Danger, which toured the world and sold a million CDs. Actually is one of my favourite solo artists. Maybe he doesn't have the overall skills and hits of monsters like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai but I always enjoy his solo albums, most of the time even more than the 2 geniuses I mentioned. Talking about the latest releases, I would pick up this new one over the good The elephant of Mars and Inviolate, which left me a little cold, to be honest.

The band playing in this ‘Electric Truth’ consists of drummer Lemar Carter (Joss Stone, Raphael Saadiq), Travis Carlton (Larry Carlton, Robben Ford) on bass, keyboardist Deron Johnson (Miles Davis, Stanley Clarke, Seal), and vocalist Corry Pertile, singing in Say what you want

The album has a "slow" start with the opener E.W.F, very bluesy and it has its highlight in the anthemic Apocryphal, surely in the beautiful When words fail..., probably my favourite of the album, Shuggie, the longest track of the album with a hypnotic riff and the sweet and melancholy One last time, the last instrumental track before the closing track Take me with you, with an unexpected acceleration in the second half of the song and probably my favourite solo of the album.

‘Electric Truth’ is a very enjoyable album, not only for people who are looking into guitar hero material but also for all Rock lovers, with lots of different atmospheres and solutions. Welcome back, Andy Timmons.

Rating 70/100
