Who Else!

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
Classic-rock guitar-god Jeff Beck has said his first album in a decade, WHO ELSE!, has a "robotic, hypnotic attitude." And just as old fans may be a bit shocked to hear that one of England's truest, bluest rockers has moved into the millennial world of ambient techno, youngsters will be amazed to hear how well the 55-year-old former Yardbird has adapted his style to the sounds of Tomorrowland. Aided by producer-keyboardist Tony Hymes, Beck places the music of the Mississippi Delta in orbit as he welds nimble, searing fretwork to the fiery drum 'n' bass of "What Mama Said" and the pumping industrial of "Psycho Sam." When he finally returns to earth for the live blues number...

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
Classic-rock guitar-god Jeff Beck has said his first album in a decade, WHO ELSE!, has a "robotic, hypnotic attitude." And just as old fans may be a bit shocked to hear that one of England's truest, bluest rockers has moved into the millennial world of ambient techno, youngsters will be amazed to hear how well the 55-year-old former Yardbird has adapted his style to the sounds of Tomorrowland. Aided by producer-keyboardist Tony Hymes, Beck places the music of the Mississippi Delta in orbit as he welds nimble, searing fretwork to the fiery drum 'n' bass of "What Mama Said" and the pumping industrial of "Psycho Sam." When he finally returns to earth for the live blues number "Brush With the Blues" and a solo performance of the Irish ballad "Declan," the bridge he's built between the past and future holds the strongest music he's made since his 1974 chart-topper BLOW BY BLOW.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Jeff Beck has never shied away from following trends, at least as far as the musical styles he uses to back up his signature guitar sound. Back in 1969, in a sleeve note on Beck-Ola, he noted that he hadn't come up with "anything totally original," and instead made an album "with the accent on heavy music" at a time when the "heavy music" of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Led Zeppelin was all the rage. In 1975, at the height of the jazz fusion movement, he made a jazz fusion album, and a good one, too. In both cases, however, the fashionable genres only provided a contemporary-sounding context in which his playing could flourish. If anyone has ever needed to be inspired to work, it's this recluse. So on his first regular studio album of new material in ten years, Who Else!, Beck, on at least a few tracks, solos over heavily percussive techno tracks reminiscent of Prodigy. But whether he's piercing such a rhythmic wall, rearranging the blues on the live "Blast From the East," or floating over an ambient soundscape on "Angel Footsteps," it's the same old Beck, with his stinging and sustained single-note melodies, his harmonics, his contrasting tones, his drive. And the man who played "Greensleeves" straight on Truth in 1968 is the same one who is faithful to the Irish air "Declan" here. Older fans who haven't been spending time at raves in recent years may want to program their CDs to avoid the electronica, but they should at least give those tunes a listen -- are they any heavier than the "heavy music" of 1969?

    Wow! This truthefully rocks!

    Something old, something new, something wild, something new. This is one of the finest albums Jeff Beck has ever created. This is unmistakeable Beck guitar work in the context of Europe's hypno and ambient styles. Oh yeah, there is a heart breaking, beautiful blues song right in the middle of it all. Turn the volume as loud as you can bear and rock out. Beware, if you are driving, this album will probably get you a speeding ticket!

    Jeff Beck's Who Else !

    Techno -Rock has just met the Master of inovation and Blues-Rock improvisational Excellence. although my hat had previously gone out to Peter Frampton on his solo effort: Fingers, Jeff Beck on this latest album, has broken all the previous walls down.... hands down.... the first 5 tracks are seriously Hi-tempo, masterful rock engendered pieces of Hi-Octane After-Burners adrenaline kickin tricks that are a Rush t listen inside, Thrust reveling pound-for-pound Bigger than Any bag we try to carry them in. They Literally Bust through no matter how we try to contain them. Literally they can't be contained, they are Wild Beasts which are untamible. Even the slow-dance numbers have a boundless attitude which gives the entire album a feeling of rawness, extreme caution for the un-suspecting ear. Beck has truly put forth a rare effort here in "Who Else" which begs the question of anyone attempting to wrap a label upon Mr. Beck. Indeed he throws off any such attempt with this latest compilation of Beck's Imagination unleashed, and un-throttled all for the listeners pleasure. And as one reviewer mentioned be ye fore-warned before getting behind the wheel, with this intoxicating blend of Jeff Beck's awesome concocktion of material in "Who Else".
