Editorial Reviews

Product Description

With his avant-tribal leanings, his love of Beatles-esque pop, his penchant for dense sonic structures and his instrumental improvisations in the modern classical mode, it's hard to know what Adrian Belew will do next. Clues lie in the sources ... Full Descriptionof COMING ATTRACTIONS, a sneak preview of works in progress, which include a new solo album, an acoustic record, a series of experimental guitar compositions, and a box set of rarities called DUST that will serve as an overview of his last 20 years of artistic activity.

Tracks from these projects incorporate early demos ("People"), treatments of songs from his previous solo albums in live acoustic settings ("Time Waits"), and remixes ("Bird in a Box"). Radical instrumental experiments such as the pulsing "No Such Guitar," the primeval sounds of "Predator Forest," and the extended jungle motif of "Animal Kingdom" create an interesting contrast to the more straightforward rock and pop outings, such as the crunching, guitar power trio on "Inner Man" (Belew, as always, is playing all the instruments). This collection of odds and ends demonstrates Belew's startling talents as a songwriter and musical innovator as well as any of his "finished" projects.

Review

Adrian Belew is easily one of rock's most prolific guitarists. He's lent his six-string talents to such notables as David Bowie, Frank Zappa, the Talking Heads, and Nine Inch Nails; played with King Crimson and the Bears; performed as a solo artist; produced bands like Jars of Clay; and wrote songs for others (such as Mariah Carey's "Daydream Interlude"). In 2000, Belew had several projects in the working stages -- a new solo album, a new Bears album, a live acoustic album titled This Is a Pencil, a new King Crimson album, and a box set titled Dust. Tasters from all of these projects (save Crimson) plus a few odds and ends were included on Coming Attractions, as well as a couple of live acoustic tracks (the latter sounding similar to his last Thirsty Ear release, Salad Days). From his upcoming solo album, the track "Inner Man" is perhaps Belew's heaviest rock track yet, while the pop perfection of "117 Valley Drive" (from the Bears release) is reminiscent of Belew's last couple of solo releases (Here, Op Zop Too Wah). Other highlights include the two live acoustic tracks "Inner Revolution" and "Time Waits," which highlight Belew's underrated vocal talents in addition to his superb guitar skills, as well as a solo demo titled "People," which previously appeared as a fully realized version on King Crimson's Thrak. --Greg Prato, All Music Guide

Adrian Belew is still not a household name, but in some music circles he is one of the most exciting and respected guitarists of his day. He has worked with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Paul Simon, Mike Oldfield, Nine Inch Nails and many others. He's made solo albums since 1981's "The Lone Rhino". He's worked as a member of King Crimson and The Bears. Yet, mention his name and most people will look at you with a perplexed brow and say, "Never heard of him." On his latest outing, "Coming Attractions", Belew compiles new, old and redone songs for our listening pleasure. This is good since he hasn't released anything in America since his 1998 compilation "Salad Days". Here we find Belew writing, singing and playing songs he does best like "Inner Man", "Predator Feast" and "117 Valley Drive." Also included are some live recordings of "Inner Revolution" and "Time Waits". An interesting demo of King Crimson's 1995 song "People" is included. All in all, Belew has put together a fairly smooth and entertaining compilation of songs here. While not as great as 1989's "Mr. Music Head" or 1992's "Inner Revolution" or even 1990's "Young Lions", "Coming Attractions" is by no means unworthy. If you like experimental guitar with a David Byrne sounding voice and clever and insightful lyrics, Adrian Belew might interest you. Recommended for Belew fans and non-fans alike.

Belew offers a preview/review of some seriously innovative pop tunes and a few unusual and pleasing guitar pieces. What is particularily outstanding about this record is that it is a true anti-greatist hits compilation. It a rare artist indeed that has the courage to give us such a personal look at his work. This CD is top notch start to finish. high lights- live cuts from Argentina/House of Cards.

If you are a fan of Adrian Belew, then you absolutely must have this CD in your collection. I was reluctant to buy this at first, because it appeared to be a compilation of his other albums. Some of the tracks I had already heard, but discovered these were different versions altogether and quite nicely done. I was also delighted to find a track with what sounded like the Prophet Omega Townsend on "I Know What I Know And That Is All I Know and I Know It". That guy never gets old.

Included with this CD in the liner notes is a nice introduction to each track written by Adrian, where he explains the source of each tune, and gives some interesting explanations and background info.

If you are new to Adrian Belew, you might be better suited to one of his other works, such as "Twain Bar King","Lone Rhino" or "Desire Caught by the Tail" (personally, I like "Desire of the Rhino King", but of course I ended up getting all four). A less progressive choice for new listeners would be "Young Lions" or "Mr. Music Head".
