Amps and Green Screens: “If you’re a guitar fan then you simply must own Careful with That Axe”

This is my Rifle John 5

Another review of the brand new John 5 album, ‘Careful With That Axe’, this time from Amps and Green Screens.

Enjoy!

I’m pretty picky about a lot of things which should come as a shock to none of you. And one of the things I’m extremely picky about is guitar albums. Maybe it’s because I can barely play myself, but more often than not it’s just too much: too much noodling, too many over the top solos screaming, “Look what I can do!”, and too much jacking off all over the fret board. Which brings me to JOHN 5 (you know who the fuck he is, stop it!) and his new album Careful with That Axe, out August 12 via 60 Cycle Hum. Now I was a YUUUGE fan of his last one God Told Me To, and it landed pretty high up on my Top 10 albums of 2012; an absolute masterpiece that was. So yeah, I was dying to see how this record turned out.  (more…)

Careful with that Axe

With just two days to go until John 5’s eight studio album, ‘Careful With That Axe‘ is released on digital music sites (with a physical release expected in the next couple of months), you may want to get a taste of what others are now saying, having had a chance to review the album.

Bloody Good Horror are one of the first to submit their review and here is is for you to read – incase you’re still trying to make your mind up; “The virtuosity and versatility of John 5 is the subtext of the record and the decision to put melody first is a great one. “Careful With That Axe” is a guitar album, yes, but a highly enjoyable one and an easy recommendation for fans of just about anything.”
