Nobody argues that this was one of the worst PRODUCED and CONCEIVED Jeff Beck albums ever, including Jeff himself. But let's not overlook the fact that it contains two SUPREME tracks,
the immortal "People Get Ready", and the vastly overlooked instrumental gem, "You Know, We Know". I also find the Jan Hammer track "Escape", which won a Grammy by the way, to be a very cool 1980s flashback. Overlook some of the horrendous vocals, and listen to the guitar solos---true Jeff Beck fans know it's all here, just sift through the garbage to get to it.

In general, I agree with most of the above comments, but as a long-time music lover, I have to rate this album as a must-have for one reason : People Get Ready. Beck nails the track, and it's probably one of Rod Stewart's best vocal performances. The combination of raspy vocals and Beck's thoughtful, haunting guitar work redeems an otherwise synthetic mish-mash of tracks. Like was stated before, you can sift through and hear the trademark Beck . I can't help but visualize most of this album as a soundtrack for a mediocre made-for-tv 80s movie. Too bad.

It wasn't hard for Jeff Beck to see the writing on the wall that six years after his previous album There and Back that doing another instrumental rock/fusion/funk album was out of the question. Music had changed to such a degree he couldn't keep doing the same thing without being looked at as a complete dinasaur and Jeff Beck was always a progressive musician. What I personally find it hard to understand is a lot of the closed minded (and possibly even somewhat racist in a couple cases) comments I've heard about this album using drum machines and having "dance tracks". One of the best ideas for this album was bringing in Nile Rodgers for the production on this album. He was very renowned in the production arena in the early/mid 80's and was doing incredible work and tracks such as "Ambitious","Ecstacy","Gets Us All In The End" and "Stop Look And Listen"the Beck sung "Get Workin'" and "Night After Night" are extremely slinky and funky,with a mild Rod Temperton/Michael Jackson type flavor in the rhythm here and there and Becks vocals aren't full of ego no but have a sly and likable quality. There's also a great hybrid of funk and new wave synth rock here that showcased how Beck wasn't finished in terms of fresh ideas and new ways to use them. One of the major nose dives on this album is the vocalist on some of the other songs. Jimmy Hall has his certain range but,fact is sometimes he's very off key on some of these songs and has a tendency to oversing. There's only one outside guest artist here and that's Rod Stewart who does a wonderful job on what wound up being a pretty tasteful update on Curtis Mayfield "People Get Ready" which,as 1985 as the production is the song winds up as something of a highlite.Read more ›

Ok, ok I know what all you fellow Beck lovers are saying (I'm a Beck lover too of course). This is the worst Beck's album ever (I think Beck himself thinks the same...). I undersand why you're saying this, but sorry, I don't agree at all. Or better, I find this album great in its own right. Yes, Flash is incredibly untrendy now for a lot of reason (you can see it by the price it is sold now, 2 dollars!!), but I don't let arrangements fool me. Beck's music here is great as ever. There are reasons why I'm saying this album is great in its own right. First of all, Beck played phenomenally here, phenomenally. The solos are solos only Beck could conceive and play. Unbelievable guitar playing (I'm an expert guitar player, I know what I'm saying). He played more flashy than ever in a sense (and the album was rightly called "Flash"!!!!) because those were the eighties and excess, machism, and explosive personality were the things. Van Halen was the guy you have to compare with, and Beck could do it easily, so he did with this album and prove he could challenge all the youngers and (Ed apart) win. Second reason is because several songs from "Flash" are great, great vehicles for Jeff's improvisations. I love them! "Ambitious", "Gut us all in the end" (try to play this solo, go, try!), "You know We Know" (it's faaantastic), "Nighthawk", "Night after Night". Obviously the wonderful "People get ready". They're great songs. Ok the arrangements are eighties, there are synths and drums machines involved, but frankly I don't care at all until the music, the MUSIC is great, and moreover Beck plays like only he could do!!! In a sense those weird and untrendy arrangements make me smile and love this album even more.Read more ›

A must have from Jeff Beck, back in the heydays of the 80's. With help from Rod Stewart, Niles Rogers, Jimmy Hall, and Tony Hymas, and others, Jeff is able to expand himself again. "Gets Us All In The End" and "Ecstasy" are great. and Rod singing "People Get Ready", makes this effort a must have.

Flash is one of guitar idol Jeff Beck's best selling album, a lot of this buoyed by the great remake of The Impressions' classic "People Get Ready," with vocals by Beck's old bandmate Rod Stewart (truly delivering one of his best performances).

But the rest of this record is solid and entertaining, including "Ambitious," (featuring a particularly nasty Beck solo), "Gets Us All In The End," and the Grammy-award winning instrumental "Escape."

If people buy this expecting to rock out, forget it. But if they want to hear some great guitar solos mixed in with some great vocals, you'll enjoy Flash.
