This is a great musical addition to either an Asia or Yes collection.

This is a group, that never really went anywhere, and that's a shame, because there is some really good songs here.

How anyone could give this album a negative review is beyond me. It's great! I mean, you have a member of Yes, a member of Asia, and a member of Genesis; the singer Max Bacon is the absolute PERFECT fit as vocalist of this band. The band sounds somewhat like Yes but without as much time devoted to long instrumentals and with more of a pop feel. It is much more easily digestible than classic Yes, which is very complex and intricate. The band has a great enjoyable style that is their own and I wish they had made more albums; anyhow, there's really not a bad track on the album and it's a great listen overall. Ignore the fact that they were critics' whipping boys back in the 80s, look at the crap that passes for music now! At any rate, no one could accuse them of not knowing what they were doing on this album as they were already established artists beforehand, and what's wrong with being more radio-friendly/easy to listen to? I highly recommend this album.

GTR is one of the best bands ever formed, though for a brief period of history. If you like Yes and Asia, you will love them! I first heard them in the late 80's, got the cassette tape and listened to them constantly. My cassette was stolen and ever since have looked for a CD and finally found one here on Amazon. I'm thrilled, to say the least!

This is a great musical addition to either an Asia or Yes collection. Standing alone it is also a good album for progressive rock. Unfortunately there is no follow-up album, nor one anticipated, at this point in time. I highly recommend this album for Progressive Rock fans and collectors.

FIRST OFF: If you can track down the 2001 remaster of this album it's well, WELL worth it. The Production/Mix was this album's biggest issue and the remaster solves that. Space is opened up between the instruments and you can clearly hear which guitarist is playing what. It also gives Max Bacon's voice room to soar. (More on that to come.) loved this album back in the day and the remaster just makes me love it more.

For those not aware, GTR was a one-off project for renowned Guitarists Steve Hackett (Genesis), and Steve Howe (Yes, Asia). It was hyped as "The Ultimate Guitar Album", understandably. Here's where the bad reputation this album has begins, but I'll get to that. Completing the line-up were 3 younger, less known but still experienced musicians. Jonathan Mover on Drums, Phil Spalding on Bass, and Max Bacon on vocals. They went into the studio with Geoff Downes, the KEYBOARDIST, yes, KEYBOARDIST from Asia producing. That's issue #2. Upon release the album took a beating from the critics and many of Hackett and Howe's longtime fans. However it did produce a justifyably huge hit single, "When the Heart Rules the Mind". Tensions between the band and the 2 guitarists emerged and after one tour they split up, leaving only this album and a live album as their legacy. They've largely been forgotten, unless used as a punching bag for critics and prog snobs, and it remains somewhat of a joke to this day.

So how could a project with so much promise go as wrong as some Fans/Critics would have you believe? Most people point the finger squarely, and vehemently at singer Bacon. I'm here to get that Monkey off his back. He, not Hackett or Howe, is the star of this album. Period.

GTR 1986. featuring Phil Spalding, Steve Hackett, Jonathan Mover, Steve Howe, and Max Bacon.

GTR came together following Steve Howe's leaving from Asia (1985). Teaming up with Steve Hackett of "Genesis" Adding Bass guitarist Phil Spalding and drummer Jonathan Mover and finally gaining strong vocal talent from singer Max Bacon.
GTR released one self-titled album (Arista Records November 1986). This gold album had two fairly big hits
"When the Heart Rules the Mind" hit #14 and "The Hunter" which topped at #85. The album as a whole hit #11 on the charts. That was about it as the band slowly crumbled after a North American and Europian tour.

This album is now in cd form only as an import and runs a few bucks. I truly believe it to be worth every dime. It has a definite eighties sound to it but, as that this was prime of life time for these great talents, it is a must have for anyone familiar with the groups they all came from.

GTR - Ive always felt there must be a brilliant album somewhere under the over-ambitious mid 80's arena rock production. I am rating it by the vinyl because that is the only medium (besides the radio) that I have listened to GTR. Actually the more revealing your hi-fi system is the worse this record sounds, I could go on in detail about how bad that is but that's already been covered.

I am not down on the writing and musicianship like some of the other reviews are because I really like the songs it's just the "sound" that is flawed. I think I am going to have to get the remastered CD to see if that really presents GTR as I always wished it could have been. The singer is really quite good he reminds me of those Kansas albums without Steve Walsh (Vinyl Confessions, etc.) it is not a bad vocal treatment and its a good match for the musical content of GTR.
