TAZ TAYLOR ‘Caffeine Racer’

Is this guy the new Joe Satriani? Quite possibly.

An instrumental guitar rock album on which Taz plays all guitars, bass and keyboards (Calvin Lakin covers the Drums), and the guitars are well layered, smoothly done and a range of rhythms and styles neatly incorporated.

With ‘Caffeine Racer’ and ‘Major Minority’ the song titles give you a good idea of what you’re gonna get.

The guy is amazingly technically proficient without being as anal as many the guitar gods out there. Apparently there’s been some exciting reviews in the amps’n’valves fraternity, and quite rightly too.

There are elements of Ace Frehley in ‘Loose And Unscrewed’, and touches of Dave Murray elsewhere.

The closer is the beautiful and more acoustic ‘George’s Song’, dedicated to his father.

Overall a great album, but for the non-technical whiz like me some vocals and more progressive arrangements would help break it up a little.
