For many years we have seen all of the different faces that Chris Caffery musically possesses. His level of skills across the wide variety of Metal and Hard Rock genres led him to give us his first solo album appropriately titled "Faces" which he followed up with "God Damn War". Each of these albums and the re-issue of his work with Doctor Butcher set the clear path for him to deliver "Pins And Needles", a recording that finds the Savatage/Trans-Siberian guitarist at his heaviest yet. "Pins" is not continuing the experimentation that he first gave us with "Faces" but instead relies on shredding guitar and thunderous drums to focus more on the Metal side of things. My thoughts are that the fans of his work with both Metalium and Savatage will appreciate the choice to remain heavy as opposed to trying too many different things. The album opens with one of the best numbers I have heard Caffery do and this is the actual title track of "Pins" itself. The drums here are delivered by the talented Yael, but she is not the only drummer on the album to enjoy. I also took notice that the album required a couple of more listens before settling on how the tunes were affecting me. "Faces" gave you a wide assortment as we have noted but with the heavy groove remaining on each tune here one will need to sit and absorb them a little more carefully. Overall there is a higher level of musical complexity showcased, and the album is very dynamic at almost every turn. It's the most consistent in sound for the player as he rallies the army with one Traditional Metal laced rocker after another. One of my favorite such tunes is "Chained" which rocks with abandon and definitely "Walls" because of the unique vocal styling he is delivering during that one.Read more ›

I love Chris Caffery's work with Savatage and TSO.. But his solo projects always leave me a little flat. Caffery is a very talented musician, one would think his efforts would shine a lot more on his albums. But it just comes out to be straight ahead, uneventful power metal. The same holds true with former band mate Jon Oliva.. his first solo album was pretty good, after that, it all turned into poinless screaming, banging and zippy guitars. No one expects Caffery and former company to release carbon copy Savatage music.. But it would be nice to see them put some magic into their solo projects.. They can do it, why settle for less?

I've only listened to this a few times, so I don't really have any business with comments on individual songs. What I do feel qualified to say is how impressed I am with Chris overall. Here's a guy that's been playing for over 20 years, with over a dozen bands, in some cases on albums where he doesn't even receive credit. BUT he keeps playing! Not for money, not for fame or women, as many do who start in this business. He plays because he truly loves what he does. That shows through in every project he's involved with. He is also one of the best out there for keeping in touch with his fans, constantly posting comments about whatever is going on in his life. Even if you aren't totally in love with his music, you get a great sense of what a likeable person he is, what a cool guy he would be to hang out with. When you meet him at a show, he's just as personable. He truly seems to appreciate every single person out there who takes the time to come say hello, or ask for a pic or an autograph. How can you not love a guy who's honest, down-to-earth, and who seems to put all of himself into everything he does???

Pins And Needles Is Right-When Listening To It, Your Walking On Pins And Needles From It's Aweful Sound !!! I Love Savatage-John Oliva's Pain-Circle II Circle-Trans-Siberian Orchestra-Chris Caffery's Albums "Faces" "Music Man EP" And W.A.R.P.E.D. Is An O.K. Album-But This Album Is Total Crap !! Chris Return To Your Roots Or Go Bankrupt With New Albums Such As This !!!
