Editorial Reviews

For his first all-instrumental album, slide guitar master Sonny Landreth assembled an extraordinary group of musicians that included guest guitarists Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson, steel drum legend Robert Greenidge and members of the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra directed by Maestro Mariusz Smolij. With elements from many different musical influences - Rock, Blues, Classical, Zydeco, Country, Jazz and Reggae - Landreth's melodic and harmonically rich compositions shift seamlessly and astonishingly to make this his most diverse and adventurous work to date.

I have been waiting for this all-instrumental album for a very long time. Without a doubt, it is worth the wait. Landreth's guitar work is always exceptional, moving between the aural pyrotechnics that makes his playing live so exciting, and the sweet, lilting melodies that fill the listener with yearning. This album brings all his masterful writing and playing together. Some tunes, like Brave New Girl and Heavy Heart Rising immediately grip the listener in melodic passion; other pieces, like For You And Forever, reveal their beauty in repeated listenings. As ever, Landreth's fine craftsmanship attracts other fine musicians to contribute, and this album is no exception, with Robert Greenidge on steel drums and Joe Satriani on a forceful solo. I drive a 32 mile commute, and this CD has been my constant companion for weeks, never tiresome, always reassuring, giving me energy for my Elemental Journey home.

Most Brilliant Unique & original instramental album i have ever heard! Just great musicianship on this album. Sonny Landreth has done a great job on this from prodution & mixing sound & the song writing as well. This is a very textured album. For one i dont think i have ever heard a slide guitar instramental album ever. Sonny pulls it off perfectly. There are many different types of music & i think the album title fits. It is an Elemental Journey through music. On this album there are blues textures & rock' country' caribbean style music & easy listening as well. But he has mixed all Elements together to where with his slide playing and mixture of styles makes it like no other instrumental album. He also has made the music to where there is background music and his solo fills are taking place of vocal lines like the guitar is the melody of what the words should be. Eric Johnson & Joe Satriani make an appearance on the album as well but i dont think it was needed Sonny held this together quite well. Very beautiful album! If you are a fan of Sonny Landreth you will enjoy this album & if you are a guitar player pick this up take notes & study. There is something for all types of musical tastes to enjoy on this album.

The masterful artistry of Sonny Landreth, shines on this, his first all instrumental offering. Engineered By Joe Satriani, who also appears on the blistering 'Gaia's Tribe'. If you appreciate the technical aspects of slide guitar playing, as well as just enjoying the music, by all means, discover Sonny Landreth!

I own many Sonny Landreth albums. He is my favorite slide player. This album while still sounding very Sonny is at the same time so fresh and new sounding to me. I love that it's an instrumental album and Sonny really takes us into new musical territory on it. This may be my favorite Sonny Landreth album, time will tell. Do yourself a favor and buy this album. One of the true living guitar greats!

I've just finished listening to Elemental Journey for the third time and must say that this is one of his best ever. If you've never listened to Sonny, this is a fantastic introduction. I've got some road trips coming up and this CD is going to get a bunch of play time.

Any project that Sonny does, is going to appeal to me. This one is very good however. I like the collection of 100% instrumentals.
He is a good singer, but the fact that there are no lyrical tunes, doesn't detract from this album.

Buy it if you are a fan. Buy it if you are starting your Sonny Landreth collection. And for $5 bucks, why haven't you already??

As with all of his albums this clearly shows how talented Sonny Landreth truly is. Recording is excellent. Sonny covers a lot of ground with this album. If you like Sonny you will enjoy this album...... Just wish I could play guitar half as good!

I wouldn't have thought it possible for Sonny to put out an album with no 12 bar blues on it, which is not my favorite musical style. It may not be overdoing it to call this music transcendent. The arrangements are at once lush and simple, with the chord changes melting into one another rather than in the usual block style. The string parts are particularly unique. And Sonny's playing is better than ever. In short, its all good.
