Format: Audio CD
Guitar players that can only do three chords and a few blues licks could not pull off this album. Anyone that could get past the flowing blond hair and marketing to screaming girls back in the seventies, knew that Frampton was not just a minimally talented hype package, but instead was a very talented player that could drive home a power chord one minute and then do a delicate melodic run on an acoustic the next. Now that his hair is gone, the talent can stand on its own. In a world of pretty boys that are done as soon as the pretty wears off, Frampton continues because he was the real deal from the beginning.

This is a very fine album that could make average guitar players (like myself) feel like they don't know as much as they thought they did. It rocks, it is sweet, it is melodic and it flows perfectly from track to track. You don't get a sense of déjà vu in the middle, which says a lot that 14 songs can be distinctly different. While an instrumental, there are two minimal vocals including a Frampton obligatory talk box single line in "Black Hole Sun".

If there is one negative thing, I wish that Frampton followed the lead of others that did duet type albums, such as B.B. King. King made it a point to differentiate the guest guitarist from his own guitar by assigning a specific Speaker. King's solo notes come out of one speaker and Clapton's or Knopfer's (or whoever) come out of the other. I would love to know which lead was Frampton and which was say, Warren Hayes, both playing the same model guitar and with a similar phrasing over a slow blues shuffle. This is just a wish and does not reduce the score for me.

FWIW.... I bought my disc at Best Buy because it came with an exclusive DVD at no extra cost.

Have listened to Peter Frampton's new instrumental album "Fingerprints" a few times now, and wanted to post a review. It's really good, but it's really different from his prior albums too. Being an instrumental album and having read the pre-release press I was expecting that, but was still surprised at the wide range of musical styles covered here. On first listen I wasn't sure it sounded like Frampton at all, on 2nd listen it sounded much more familiar, and by the third listen I could hear Frampton all over it. His fluid guitar leads & sound are unmistakable, but it's the shifting song styles he plays them over that make the album so diverse. This sounds like the kind of music he's probably always played when he was practicing, playing for his own pleasure, warming up during a soundcheck, or jamming on in the studio between takes for more "regular" sounding songs during previous album sessions. This is an important album for Frampton, and I think it establishes clearly just how accomplished a guitarist & musician he is. Most fans know this already, but this album shows just how much command over the guitar he really has, and how comfortably he can branch out into all sorts of playing styles to make the instrument do whatever he wants. More of a guitarist who also sings, rather than a singer who also plays guitar. Not all rock musicians could record such a diverse album as this. Each song demonstrates a completely different aspect of his playing ability, and puts him in the ranks of other jazz/rock/fusion instrumentalists. Another nice touch is that none of the songs play on for longer than they need to. On an instrumental album it would be easy to just play on forever, but all 14 songs here have very tight themes and arrangements, and keep the album moving.Read more ›

First I must admit that I am not a real big fan of P.F. The only record I own from him is the same one you do, Frampton Comes Alive. The reason for me buying the record is twofold... I saw him sit in w/ the Allman Brothers at the Beacon Theater in March and he definitely still had the chops ( you have to if you want to hang w/ the brothers), and I heard a great instrumental track from the new record ( Float) on sirius radio. So I decided to check it out. It turned out to be a great decision. This record has everything for everyone. He really shows his diversity here, from Latin Jazz to Blues heavy songs, to straight rock to grunge ( Black hole sun). I especially like the more ''spacey'' Pink Floyd sounding tracks (Float, My cup of tea) along w/ the bluesier numbers ( Blooze) which features Warren Haynes and Frampton locked in a great slide duel. Be warned, this is an instrumental album and sounds nothing like Frampton Comes Alive. Good thing for us. That record was made by a young Twenty year old hotshot. This one was made by a seasoned veteran who can transfix you with the gift he was given. My guess is you will like the results.

I am old enough to not only remember Frampton in the 70's but to have seen him live then. I won't "go there" with the career problems through the years, but as I have told many people - people forget, or perhaps never realized, what a great guitarist Peter Frampton was, and is!

I pre-ordered this album after hearing Mr. Frampton play two of the tracks from it live over the summer. I could tell then that this was going to be a special album. Since receiving my copy I have played it at least 6 times through and it is amazing. A fully instrumental album, this is worthy of taking it's place along side anything ever done by Jeff Beck, George Benson, etc.

Frampton explores several styles and moods in this album. There is not a track that I don't like. Take a chance - buy it!
