    Jeff Beck is One of the World's Greatest Rock Guitarists

    It's been decades since I bought a Jeff Beck record. My last one could possibly be "Blow by Blow." See, I told you it's been a long time. But, on "Emotion and Commotion" Beck establishes himself as one of the world's great rock guitarists. He is equally comfortable playing a slow, soulful tune like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as he is ripping through many of the other songs on the record. One of the songs even has a full orchestra playing. A guitarist as maestro. Now, that is something you don't hear every day. His guitar weeps, loves, hammers, and cries. The name is apt for the varying moods Beck puts the listener in as you enjoy this collection. I whole-heartedly recommend this album.

    Mesmerizing Brilliance!

    How many ways can I say brilliant? Phenomonal. Perfection. Genius. This CD is all those synonyms and more! A blend of funk, mellow rock, and mind-melting blues that I will never grow tired of hearing. Buy it. Experience Beck's brilliance.

    One of Beck's Best

    The artistry displayed on this album continues to show why Jeff Beck is rock's premier guitarist. From the mournful "Corpus Christi Carol" to the rollicking "There's No Other Me", Beck wrings the emotion from his guitar in a way that even non-guitarists can appreciate. In addition to the usual instrumental gems (including a stunning take on "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"), his collaborations with vocalists Joss Stone ("I Put a Spell on You" and "There's No Other Me") and newcomer Imelda May ("Lilac Wine") are highlights as well. The inclusion of a full orchestra on several cuts harkens back to Beck's Blow by Blow album. Emotion and Commotion is a fully realized and wonderfully executed album that shows Jeff Beck at the top of his game.
