For anyone who is a guitar fanatic, this album is an absolute must.
RooiValk
By this solo album alone, should testify that Rabin was an extremely talented musician, as well as a great pop songwriter.

Buy this album and you will not be disappointed, you may even rediscover how to tap your feet.

Considering 'Big Generator' took 4 years to surface, Rabin's solo album 'Can't Look Away' being released in 1989 is a miracle in itself. I bought this album on the day of its release, and I think I've owned multiple media versions of it for 15 years, cassette, compact disc, vinyl. If it came out on DVD, I'd probably buy that as well. It actually would make an interesting DVD, considering Trevor Rabin's biography and musical history, which are all contained on this solo album. Born in South Africa, Rabin's stance on Apartheid was cemented in his childhood, long before SUN CITY and other artists joined the campaign trail. His family links to Stephen Biko, and the whole struggle against apartheid are worth the purchase of Rabin's work anyway.

As a musician, by 1989 he had been a 'pop star' for almost 15 years, being first successful in the band RABBIT. Rabbit, in South Africa, is still the single most successful band SA has ever produced, it has almost Beatle stature in its success. Rabin was its principal songwriter, and by 1989, his talent and composition skills had truly matured, and are at their most effective here. He is also joined by producer Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd's The Wall, Peter Gabriel's 1st album), Rabbit producer Patric Van Bleurk, and Yes drummer Alan White. But it is really Rabin's showcase.

If you don't like eclectic albums, or those that do not stick with one genre of music, maybe Rabin's album won't suit your tastes. Each track is different from its last, and it moves through so many different genres in its time that one could complain that there is not much to hold on to. This has never bothered me about the album, because each song stands on its own for what it is, and his work is always tasteful to its genre.

This CD, touted as being REMASTERED, is digitally identical to the original CD released in 1989.

Also, the artwork is blurry. Only get this release if you can't find the original CD.

3 stars for false information on a great album.

Ten years on and this album still sounds utterly fantastic. The guitar playing is multi-layered and awesome. The backing vocals are sublime and the production is masterful. The real star is the songwriting. Each track is stunning with heartfelt lyrics and soaring melodies. Trevor Rabin is a genius of our time and this album deserves far more credit than it has been given. A masterpiece in rock music.

Trevor Rabin released "can't look away" after single-handedly rescuing dying supergroup Yes with his songwriting and production values. This is no small feat. Albeit a low-key release, "can't look away" made its mark on the rock and roll community, even if his precious few fans were the only ones aware of it. I, for one, was not a big fan of his earlier solo work, heck, I didn't even know any previous work existed! But after seeing his life-injecting formula with Yes, I checked it out and it has become one of my favorite albums to return to again, and again. Melody is the first ingredient into every Trevor Rabin cut here, and the melodies keep coming, all well thought out and all very sucessful. Rabin's melodies soar in his mid-tempo compositions ("Hold on"..."Sorrow"...and the beautiful "eyes of love") and his arrangements are ALL top-notch. Then, of course, there's his incredible guitar technique that astounds in it's complexity and originality. Rabin is truly one of the few amazingly gifted songsmiths and, to me, it's a shame he pays the bills today doing movie scores. "Can't Look Away" ultimatly got lost in the rock scene amid a sea of heavy metal acts clogging the arteries of rock radio and MTV during the era, but this album stands well today, just as it did in 1989.

A superior album that gives Rabin fans exactly what they came for. From start to finish, this album kicks ass as only Trevor can.

I received the cassette tape as a gift, and promptly wore it out. Now the CD I got to replace it is showing signs of excessive wear. So I guess my warning to the prospective buyer is to be careful, because this music is likely to cause you to wear out your stereo equipment as well.

I love listening to this album on long drives through the desert, but beware: it can be very engrossing and hypnotic. Trevor crafts his music with all the guile, cleverness and depth you'd expect from a celebrated Yes alumnus.

So if you're in the mood for a great musical experience, don't look away from "Can't Look Away".

"Can't Look Away" is simply one of the best solo albums ever made. I always liked the old "YES" as well as the new "YES" music. Listening to this album, one can hear the excellent musicianship that helped Trevor boost "YES" into their re-birth with "90125". Not only is he awesome on the guitar, but the keyboard work is extrordinary as well. The composing and arranging of his music is equal to the performing of it. This is a relativley obscure recording, by industry standards, but would be appreciated by any fan of "YES", "KANSAS", or "RUSH".
