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…)

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.”
