Out in the Fields: The Very Best of Gary Moore

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Irish guitarist Gary Moore has built an entire career on stubborn self-recycling. Just when listeners think they have him pegged within a particular musical style (heavy metal guitar slinger, soft-hearted acoustic player, jazz fusion experimentalist, electric blues purist), the enduring six-string legend throws a curve ball and changes artistic direction -- seemingly just to spite his critics. Because of this, his extensive recorded legacy as a solo artist has defied adequate encapsulation into greatest-hits packages, and in America, where his profile has never exceeded the status of a connoisseur's favorite, taking a first stab at discovering his work becomes an even...

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Irish guitarist Gary Moore has built an entire career on stubborn self-recycling. Just when listeners think they have him pegged within a particular musical style (heavy metal guitar slinger, soft-hearted acoustic player, jazz fusion experimentalist, electric blues purist), the enduring six-string legend throws a curve ball and changes artistic direction -- seemingly just to spite his critics. Because of this, his extensive recorded legacy as a solo artist has defied adequate encapsulation into greatest-hits packages, and in America, where his profile has never exceeded the status of a connoisseur's favorite, taking a first stab at discovering his work becomes an even more vexing task. Out in the Fields: The Very Best of Gary Moore doesn't solve this problem, but it does alleviate it somewhat by concentrating on Moore's best-known guise among the aforementioned connoisseur club -- hard rock and heavy metal guitar shredder. Included here are the rare mainstream hits ("Out in the Fields," "Wild Frontier"), balls-out metal headbangers ("Run for Cover," "Military Man"), sublime ballads ("Parisienne Walkways," "Empty Rooms"), and later-day blues successes ("Cold Day in Hell," "Still Got the Blues"). In an imperfect world and a less-than-perfect career, this is about as spot-on as one can expect.

    Good - but buy his albums instead

    Some Gold, Platinum, Silver ...and a little Bronze. Some great songs: Parisiene Walkways (a World record for the longest sustained note?). The late, great Phil Lynott contributing to several songs, including several classic Lizzy-type songs. There is a very enjoyable version of the classic ''still in love with you'', one of my favourite songs of all time -- more sophisticated than the Live and Dangerous version, although Brian Robertson's version remains the definitive version of this song for me. The big surprise for me was that the songs I enjoyed the most featured Gary singing, and for the most part were songs written by just him - and the Lizzy-like songs I usually skip over! This album varies from blues to heavy metal -- guess I wanted & expected more blues from Gary. If you do to, try some of his other albums. Other great songs include wishing well, Still got the Blues, Cold Day and Hell (wonderful - it has real punch). My suggestion, buy the albums rather than this ''best of'' -- they probably have a more coherent feel, and Gary's own work is very good.
