Favorite Clapton Album
By Amber Serentio
This is my favorite Eric Clapton studio album. Every track is good. The album shows a real maturity in Claptons approach featuring great guitar work that he's known for and excellent use of synths, unlike some of his earlier 80's work where use of synths may have been considered excessive. A particular highlight for me is his collaboration with George Harrison on "Run so far," an melodic country track.
It's CLAPTON, people... enjoy it!
Listen for Daryl Hall's backing vocal on "No Alibis". Great stuff.
Clapton is Cod
Its just ok. Kinda boring. Definetly not god like guitar playing. Sorry guys.
It's not bad
This album isn't too bad at all. The songs look like they are pop songs.
Clapton is God
Man, every song, well pretty much everysong on this album is great. You won't be disappointed. Clapton is great to listen to but as an aspiring blues guitarist (playing to sold out living rooms everywhere) these songs are a great starting point.
Indeed, this was the one that got EC back to where he should be (outside of the work he displayed on Rogers Waters' 1984 classic, "Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking"). "Before You Accuse Me", with Robert Cray smokes, especially EC's solo in the last three bars of the song. "Old Love" smolters, and his singing and solo in Ray Charles' "Hard Times" conveys bonafide yearning for better situations. Pick this one up, 3/4s of it is good.
For the Love of GOD it's Eric Clapton!
