Editorial Reviews

At an age when fellow ex-Yardbirds guitar gods Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page are polishing their legend and trying to recapture it, respectively, Jeff Beck has produced one of his most challenging and rewarding albums. An edgy, metallic maelstrom with a distinctly postmodern slant (thanks largely to the tense, digitized rhythms of producer Andy Wright and drummer/programmer Aiden Love), You Had It Coming is the kind of album his fraternal fretmeisters might scarcely understand, let alone attempt. Already the guitar's unparalleled master of feedback, distortion, harmonic sorcery, and microtonal manipulation, Beck here pushes the envelope yet again. From the manic thrash-metal of "Earthquake" to the hot-rod sampled "Roy's Toy" and especially "Loose Cannon," Beck's soloing is all haunting howls and jagged corners, a nervy dance along the razor's edge of dissonance and melody. The emotionally charged changes of pace are as surprising as they are compelling: Beck exploring Eastern modalities while showcasing his arsenal of technique in a stunning take on Indian pop musician Nitin Sawhney's "Nadia"; the techno revamp of the blues staple "Rollin' and Tumblin'," fronted by the urgent vocals of Imogene Heap; Jeff literally jamming with a chirping feathered friend on "Blackbird" (while plying the frets with a table fork!); the fingerpicking funk of "Rosebud"; and the graceful, lyrical resolve of "Suspension." This is one of Beck's best and a worthy companion to Blow by Blow, Wired, and Guitar Shop. --Jerry McCulley

This is most certainly one of Jeff Beck's best albums yet. But before I move on, let's clarify that. I believe his best albums to be: Blow by Blow, Wired, Guitar Shop, and You Had It Coming.
You Had It Coming is one of the best guitar albums ever released. This is obvious from the start, because Jeff Beck is THE best guitarist ever. Listen to the solo during the fade out of Left Hook. It's so fast and smooth you'll have to send your pants to the cleaners TWICE.
Nadia, as mentioned in previous reviews, is the standout of this album. Jeff Beck is obviously the only person who could pull this off, and he did in fine, fine fashion. He gets a massive, rich tone and his famous phrasing and tricks are shown throughout the album.
Now, you may be turned away from the electronic drums and all. Don't be. Even if you don't like the song, it is impossible on this album to NOT be overwhelmed by the talent. Loose Cannon lives up to it's name. Suspension is a calm, mysterious piece that will leave you begging for more. Nadia, as mentioned, is one of the best songs Jeff has ever done. Rollin' and Tumblin' is a wonderful cut showing Jeff can play the blues better than ever. Dirty Mind is wah-bliss. Beck doesn't pump his wah Hendrix style. He's too good. You have to listen to it to realize the control that he uses on his wah.
Every cut on this album is plastered with sheer emotion. Every note Jeff plays in Nadia is full of intense emotion and soul. Listen to this album a few times. If it doesn't stick the first time, listen again. This album has soul and emotion all over it. 5 stars indeed!

This album, as said by many other reviewers, is one of Jeff Beck's best, and is one of guitar's best as well. You Had It Coming pushes musical boundaries like none before it. People usually turn their heads when I tell them it's techno oriented, but once I play it for them they run out to buy their own copy.
Anyone who thinks Jeff Beck is boring should listen to the first cut, Earthquake. The dynamics and tension are a nice touch, listen as the middle section is like the eye of the storm, calm, but then Jeff rips it apart with his awesome, awe-inspiring solo. Classic. Roy's Toy is another highlight piece with a funky groove (think "A Day in the House" from Guitar Shop, only even cooler). For motorheads such as myself, this song has an extra bonus when we hear the 32 Ford roadster start up at the beginning and is used throughout the rest of the song. Jeff's solo in this song is also quite inspiring and, simply, awesome. The next cut, Dirty Mind, is the single from the album. Jeff Beck's wah pedal playing in this song is amoung the best I've ever heard. The technically staggering solo in the middle is THE best wah wah solo that I've heard on an album. Rollin' and Tumblin', the next song, features the soulful Imogene Heap on vocals. This awesome rendition of the song gives the Blues a new name. The solo section between Jeff and Imogene is very fun, awesome, and leaves you wondering how on earth Jeff Beck does it.
The next cut, Nadia, merits more detailed examination and we shall look it over in a little bit. Meanwhile, anyone who thinks they sound tough and menacing on their Strat (or any guitar, for that matter) should give Loose Cannon, the next song, a listen. The menacing riff in the beginning sets the tone for the whole song.

Unbelievable! The tracks on this album read like a primer of how a guitar god can remake himself & not be left behind in the scrabble of "stuff" that's discarded by (pop music) society!
I'm not even a guitar afficianado, ( I prefer a great keyboard player , usually) but a friend recommended this Cd & I was AMAZED!
Every track is special; it is aggressive; it is "grab you by the throat & shake you hard" aggressive. At the right volume, I could easily picture the paint on my walls shattering to the floor! Yet every track is ALSO well thought out, and extremely well performed.
This is terrific stuff! Buy it if you are into extraordinary guitar work!

You Had It Coming is one of Jeff Beck's best albums yet. It is right up there with Blow by Blow, Truth, and Wired. Jeff has a great band -Jennifer Batten, Randy Hope Taylor, and Steve Alexander. The songs on the album are craftfully made, from the rock song Earthquake to the peaceful song Suspension. Jeff Beck's soloing is EXCELLENT on this album, some of the best soloing I've ever heard him do. If you want a bit of shred, listen to the end of Left Hook. You want fingerpicking funk? Listen to Rosebud. You want a great rock guitar song? Earthquake is most excellent. Into cars? Listen to the hot-rodded song Roy's Toy. Need haunting solos? Listen to Loose Cannon. If you're into wah-pedal songs, Dirty Mind is the way to go. Want some real blues? Listen to Rollin' and Tumblin', fronted by the vocals of Imogen Heap. There's songs for everyone on this magnificant CD by the greatest guitarist of all time. The best song on the album is Nadia. Jeff does a stunning take on Nitin Shawney's song Nadia, and it is the standout tune of You Had It Coming. Better than 'Cause We've Ended As Lovers, even. Nadia is fantastic. I'm sure glad I had this coming!
