A Guitar Lovers Dream Come True
on August 13, 2007
You can count me in that category of music lovers who live for that next great guitar solo. And Duarte sounds like his main mission here was to please fans like me. Simply outstanding guitar work throughout. And this cd comes closer to his live show performances than anything he has ever done in studio. You can kick back and really get into this cd. Over half the songs here clock in at more than 6 minutes. With a couple reaching double digits. The 13 minute "Something Wicked" is a slow blues burner that is simply outstanding throughout. And it's followed up with "I'll Never Know", which is one of the best songs that Duarte has ever written. And his singing is also very impressive here. I noticed he's changed labels to the more guitar oriented label Blues Bureau. And I hope he sticks with it, because it sounds like he's headed in a good direction with his music. He's playing to his strengths where the guitar comes first.. And almost nobody out there in the blues rock category is more original at it than Duarte. A thouroughly enjoyable album. And the best that I've heard so far in 07.
