Neck and Neck

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Working with Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler had a rejuvinating influence on Chet Atkins. Knopfler has Atkins moving toward his country roots, but both guitarists still play with a tasteful, jazzy sensibility -- however, Atkins has abandoned the overt jazz fusion pretensions that sank most of his '80s records. With its direct, understated approach, Neck and Neck is the most focused and arguably the most rewarding record Atkins has released.

    not enough sizzle in this steak

    These are two excellent finger style guitarists, real artists in their respective genres. I bought this with the anticipation of hearing some guitar fireworks, but alas, it was not to be. These sessions are very comfortable, very gentlemanly, and very overproduced. A pleasant listening experience to be sure, but nothing of significance. It would have been far better just to hear the two of them without all the padded accompaniment getting in the way of things. If you were expecting something along the lines of "Chester and Lester" (Chet Atkins and Les Paul) with great dueling guitar interplay, this in not it. Just not enough sizzle in this steak.
