Adrian Belew - Side Two


Adrian Belew returns again, with a follow up to Side One (see below =P) This album again has strong guitar work, but seems to have a large amount of synthesized drums and is almost devoid of outside help. Still again, the album takes on the trademark Belew sound, with guitar riffs that don't feel right, but sound right in place and somehow sound good. (I honestly don't know what I'm trying to say in the previous sentence :D )The album opens with "Dead Dog On Asphalt" A mellow yet somewhat disturbing song. A perfect chilling opener for the album. In this way, the album divides from the previous, with a more calm yet scary atmosphere; as opposed to the powerhouse that was Side One. Don't get me wrong, this album has its good share of powerful guitar riffs, however they didn't appeal to the feel of the album as much as they did on Side One. Overall, great album similiar to the previous. if you like Side One, or any late Crimson stuff, SNAG IT

  • please remove the free download. This master is owned by Sanctuary records. The publishing is ASCAP and Adrian Belew. Lawyers will be contacting you if you do not remove immediately.

  • Any chance you could re-up the ROBIN TROWER - BRIDGE OF SIGHS album? Any others would be fine too. TC
