In 2003 Jeff Martin (Racer X) started writing
his first solo album, titled “The Fool”. Two years later Jeff
Martin completed the recordings of his solo album, and I’m
sitting here with the final result.
Featuring names like Michael Schenker and Paul
Gilbert, among others my expectations were high when I first threw
“The Fool” in my CD-player.
After about 5 to 6 spins I was stunned… and
I don’t mean that in a positive way… - This album is sooooo,
boring. There are not a single memorable riff, solo or chorus on
this release. I gave it another chance… and another and after
about 10 spins in my CD-player I just couldn’t take it any more.
Even after 10 spins, still no memorable riffs
or choruses. The production is alright but it won’t save this
crappy album. Maybe I’m being a hard ass, but this album
is a waste of time.
End of review.
