Editorial Reviews

'Abnormal' is the follow-up to Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal's previous offering 'Normal,' a hard rock album flavored with a light-hearted mix of different styles and genres, with catchy hooks and blistering guitar work. When asked about the new project, Thal had the following to say: 'It was October last year, I was about to fly into a f**king rage, went to go crash out at the studio, and all these songs just started flying out of my head. Spent the next few months recording drums, bass, guitars, vocals, opera singers and tuba players. Some people heard it and said it reminds them of the Sex Pistols with a little Beatles/Queen vibe to it. Didn't have a plan, just did what I felt, and in the end this is what I got.' Ron Thal is from NYC and is a member of Guns N' Roses, as well as a songwriter, producer, music Professor at SUNY Purchase College, and volunteer with the MS Research Foundation. He has released 7 solo works previous to 'Abnormal', has written TV themes, video game soundtracks, and has been a guest guitarist on stage or in the studio with a diverse list of artists that include Jessica Simpson, Joe Satriani, Nancy Sinatra, jazz legend Allen Toussaint, Turkish composer Fahir Atakoglu and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little something for everyone August 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying I love Ron. I've been into him since LONG before his G'n'R days. I've been to a couple of his clinics, own all his albums, have pretty much every rare recording of his, etc. HUGE fan. That said, a lot of this album doesn't appeal to me. Sans a few good riffs here and there and some blistering guitar solos, I didn't really start digging the album until about the 2nd half. The notable songs on the album for me right now are: Simple Days (very easy-going tune), Piranha (heaviest song on the disc with great composition and a great solo), Guitars Still Suck (a ridiculously amazing follow-up to Guitars Suck), Green (another easy-going tune), Spaghetti (an instrumental that would've mostly fit perfectly in the movie Pulp Fiction), Misery (if you liked the vibe of his album Uncool, you'll really dig this tune), The Day After (this song has a very ambient feel to it and REALLY reminds me of something I would expect to hear from Buckethead), and Dash (just a solid rock tune with a cool solo).

Basically, exactly half of this album really appeals to me and the other half doesn't. This is what I've become accustomed to with Ron's solo discs, though! Outside of his first few albums, I usually like about half of the music on any given disc. That's why I've given it 5 stars. Even though I don't like the other half, that's not to say it isn't well-written and won't appeal to others. Ron is an amazing talent and regardless of who you are, there's stuff on this album for you. (Unless you're looking for stuff like "Bun B" or "David Allan Coe" or something, lol)

5.0 out of 5 stars Abnormal.. not an ordinary rock album July 6, 2008
By Satrio
Format:Audio CD
Ok I just got this album today, definitely a pleasant surprise because it has so freaking great tracks. The style is widely diverse from punk,classical,opera,shred,country.. well you name it :). For all these years I've been listening to Ron's music, it's quiet amazing to see how this man always came up with fresh and amazing ideas with his music. To some people probably they know Ron from his blazing licks and never ending smart shred guitar playing, but as a matter of facts, he's more than just guitar god, he's definitely a modern composer that has his own way to express his idealistic and genious music.. I really can't get enough to listen to this amazing CD.. it's so yummy like banana split ice cream and yet spicy like your tasty hot sauce! get it and listen for yourself.. Abnormal definitely a great album .. I consider it as the best one among Bumblefoot's CDs .. yeah.. it's that GREAT! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Another record from Bumblefoot! December 10, 2008
By Michael
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bumblefoot is a wicked guitarist that has talent and skill to burn. Few people had heard of him until recently after he got the gig with Guns 'n' Roses resulting in a great boost to his profile. This is his new solo album and it continues in the style he is known for - weird psychotic frantic punkish country virtuoso rock jingles! Don't be frightened but be prepared for something a little different. I'm gonna be honest and tell you that this is a mish mash of killer guitar playing and quirky songwriting with brutally honest and potentially offensive vocals. I love it but I think it is an aquired taste. Bumblefoot is really interesting to listen to and he certainly can't be accused of rehashing ideas - his music is one of a kind! Don't expect to hear standard guitar shred cause this is way more quirky and more in the vein of Frank Zappa (concepts and humour) meets the Beatles (catchy jingles) meets Steve Vai (guitar shred).
