    CD Review: Blink Of An Eye

    Translated from the original Dutch by Google Translate
    Review: Gary Eisenbraun Blink Of An Eye
    20 december 2019
    Text: Peter Marinus

    I have been counting on the website of singer-multi-instrumentalist Gary Eisenbraum and then come to the conclusion that we are dealing with the eighteenth album of this artist !!! Gary is originally from Rochester, New York and currently lives in Tampa Bay, Florida. He was inspired by rock acts such as The Allman Brothers Band, the Black Crowes and Ian Moore as soul artists such as Al Green and Otis Redding.

    On his new album, Gary plays all the instruments himself and it is especially his hard, raw guitar sound that stands out immediately. A guitar sound that is reminiscent of the raw raw guitar sound of Neil Young. The soul influences are mainly reflected in the experienced raw voice of Gary.

    Of course it is great if you play all the instruments yourself and then come up with an album that has a sound as if a band is playing. Only in drumming does Gary sometimes fall short. Zin drum style is at times somewhat woody.

    Still, this album really impresses me. There are a number of songs on the album that are reminiscent of Ian Moore in terms of sound, such as the opener Blink Of An Eye. A mid-tempo song with clear soul influences and with a burning hard guitar.

    The driving Can’t Think About Love also reminds me of Ian Moore. Gary's sandpaper voice sounds extremely soulful here and the howling guitar work reveals slight Allman Brothers influences. Then the blues gets a good deal of attention in the slow-moving Delta blues of Right Down In The Middle. A song that turns into funky driving blues rock with unrivaled raw-cutting guitar skills. The sultry funky Easier Said Than Done sounds quite intense with his floating guitar and log-pumping guitar riffs.

    Time Catching Up With Me is an intimate and atmospheric ballad, comparable to the quieter work of Jeff Healey. The semi-acoustic Coming Up For Air is also a ballad with a melancholic sound with accompanying howling guitar.

    Hiding In Plain Sight is then a soggy grooving blues rocker with riffs that are well immersed in the fuzz. Drive It Into The Ground sounds nasty. A heavily buzzing slow blues rock shuffle in which the tempo is lowered at some point to make room for a loud howling guitar solo. In the mid-tempo One More Shot To My Heart there are quite a few Thin Lizzy influences and in Another Lover On The Run a Neil Young & Crazy Horse-like rawness is coupled with a floating Pink Floyd-like sound.

    After the languid and threatening Pale Moon, Gary closes the album with the very soggy boogie Wind Me Up, a massive Z.Z. Top-like song with beautiful melodic breaks.
    I think it is unimaginable that we now realize that Gary Eisenbraum is a very talented blues rock artist who has delivered a great eighteenth album.

    In A Blink: Brand New CD!

    What makes this album different from previous ones? It's all rock and roll, but this one has more blues rock in it. I hate to use the term "blues rock" because my music doesn't fit tightly into that category. Look, I know that I'm not playing into the stereotype of this music, ...but rather the intent of the genre. This music has to move, or face extinction and I'm trying to move it in my own (humble) way. I'm proud of this album because my overall musical vision is becoming clearer. Not only that, but I feel like my song-writing is taking on more depth, my production skills are growing and I am finding out that the possibilities of a guitar...are endless. It's all... one more step down the road. Everything is endlessly changing and growing. I don't want to blink... or I might miss it..

    The album is available on compact disc and/or as a download/stream.

    Rock & Roll Incantation.

    Casting a spell with my fender strat. "Blink Of An Eye" is the first official music video from my brand new album (of the same name). I've bookended the song with guitar solos front and back that travel with the magician as he wonders the shore in search of answers. Rock and roll holds the key ( everything). Right?

    A Song That Is Hard To Classify...

    Sometimes songs defy classification...and that's a good thing. When you think of it, a lot of rock and roll is made up of songs that don't really fit classification. When they turn out really well, they're something special ... and I think this is one of those kind of songs. So all things being said, welcome to my new music video from Fork In The Road. Check it out on my YouTube channel. ...and.... enjoy.

    A New Fork-full...

    The red light is indeed on. Fork In The Road is both the title song from the new album ... and is the latest music video uploaded to my YouTube channel. This one has a really good rock and roll feel to it with some freaky backwards video effects (to match the backwards guitar parts). Hey. If it's good enough for Hendrix, ... it's good enough for me. This is also our first foray into 4K UHD,,, as pleasing on the eyes as it is on the ears. LOL. Ha. Enjoy the video.
