To this day, Inner Revolution still holds that magic for me.
J. Hubner
Inner Revolution, like Revolver, stands as Belew's most consistent, mature and powerful musical statement as a solo artist.
Wayne Klein
Buy it if you want good Beatle-esque pop, but you are warned if you are expecting King Crimson.

The reference to The Beatles' Revolver is no accident. Inner Revolution, like Revolver, stands as Belew's most consistent, mature and powerful musical statement as a solo artist. Given Belew's work with King Crimson, The Bears and his own solo work, that's quite an achievement. Belew's songs focus on the tragic consequences of his divorce (The War in The Gulf Between Us), personal philosphy of life (Inner Revolution)and occasionally takes a detour into the lilting melodic avenue Lennon and McCartney traveled on (Everything).
There's not one song that isn't a gem. The mastering on the original CD was so-so; many of the songs sounded compressed and one-dimensional so it's nice to have another opportunity to visit with this classic album with improved sound. Although it didn't sell as well as Mr. Music Head or capture the imagination the way his work did with King Crimson during the early 80's, Inner Revolution still stands out like a brilliant gem in a discography filled with treasure.
It's Adrian Belew's best album to date (although many other albums would come close to matching its beauty, bizarre sounding guitar parts and musical composition) and I'm happy that Wounded Bird has returned it to print.

First off, don't buy this album if you're hoping to hear King Crimson. You won't. This is basically a pop album that's very Beatle-esque (on one of the songs Adrian imitates John Lennon's vocal intonations almost perfectly) and has some of the best work Belew has layed his name to. Buy it if you want good Beatle-esque pop, but you are warned if you are expecting King Crimson.

This is one of my favorite albums of the 90's. This album, with its psychedelic undertones, actually sounds like it should have been released years before it was. But hey, who says that anachronism is a bad thing? This album makes no secret about wearing its influences on its sleeve, much of it basically sounds like REVOLVER part deux (there's a backwards guitar solo a la George Harrison on the title track, along with numerous other similar production touches). The infectiously buoyant "Big Blue Sun" easily sounds like it could be a lost track from MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. The resemblances in this case are a major plus because the attention paid to melody and harmony is generally just as acute and meticulous as it is on the work it draws its inspiration from ("Everything" is probably the greatest Paul McCartney song that Paul McCartney never wrote). This album is pensive and introspective, with a genuinely empathetic tone throughout (just check out the heartfelt environmentalist's anthem "Only A Dream). I've read that this album was recorded after a difficult divorce (the song "The war in the gulf between us" finds him recounting the dissolution of his marriage) and that hardship led to some strikingly honest and inspired moments. Belew comes across as idealistic but firmly grounded in reality, with moments of plainspoken sober wisdom throughout. He also shows himself to be a master craftsman in the vein of Stevie Wonder, Prince or Todd Rundgren, as he composes every song and plays and arranges every instrument on the entire album (they are the only artists that I've heard who can really, really pull off the one-man band thing).Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
No matter how history dresses it up in anti 1980's pop culture sentiment,fact is 1992 was not the easiest year to cope with musically,depending by degrees on who you were and how you were conducting your career. A perceived lack of vitality in rock in the 80's had been given a massive supercharge with the commercial arrival of grunge. It had been around for years of course. But despite it's nearly decade long take over of rock radio and charts,in different guises of course,grunge or variations on it were not the only alternative rock styles to exist. Adrian Belew had created one in the 80's. And there were many who did the same and never seemed to get noticed. Obviously not one to follow on the coat tails of the grunge rock trend of the time,Adrian decided to go for a very different musical concept here than not only what the times expected but that he had ever done.

This is the only Adrian Belew album I've ever heard that could be described as mainstream. None of the songs are over four minutes,contain much overt musical experimentation and his zoo guitar playing technique is rather downplayed in comparison to earlier releases. The very strident guitar pop title song opens the album,lyrically inviting the listener to think for themselves and not feel a need to conform to attain any of their endeavors. With far more rhythmic complication he extends that same concept into "This Is What I Believe In". On "Only A Dream",a big arena pop flavor emerges as he asks listeners if they want future generations living in a polluted and uninhabitable world. Rather than preach on ecology,he leaves the choice up to us. The double meaning in "War In The Gulf Between Us" is wonderfully offset by the melodic guitar pop of the music.
