Picture of a Thousand Faces Review

by Roch Parisien

Like many a young hot-shot guitarist, Gales tends to overplay - it's all very fine wanting to be Hendrix, but maturity teaches that the notes you don't play can be equally important. Still, Gales' power trio has the talent and the chops to pull off the melodic Fender-on-hyperdrive approach, and it doesn't hurt that solid songs and vocal harmonies underpin the wailing.

Guitar solo fanatics will especially want to check out the powerhouse closing to "God Only Knows," and the 8-minute, blues-injected cover of The Beatles' "I Want You (She's So Heavy)."
