Eric Gales Transformation
October 24, 2011
Eric Gales brings his
burning take on the
blues to these 12 cuts.
Big tones, a stinging
attack, and huge chops are the order of the
day, with jazzier lines on “Double Dippin’,”
angular rock on “Tortured Mind,” and Beatle-
y melodicism on the title track. Gales has
a good sense of space throughout, knowing
when to blaze and when to lay back. Fans
of high-powered blues-rock will find a lot to
love on this record. Shrapnel.
