ANDY TIMMONS BAND
Theme from a Perfect World
Andy Timmons and his band are set to release their next album, Theme from a Perfect World September 30, 2016. From the unexpected rests in the first few measures of “Ascension,” this album pulls the listener in with meaty riffs, tasty hooks, and enough crunch to break teeth. If one is a fan of instrumental rock guitar, as I am, one appreciates the artistry of fingers on strings. Guitarists so skilled, they evoke smiles, laughter, and tears, foot-tapping, and dancing without ever opening their mouths to utter one lyric.
Theme from a Perfect World is addictive ear candy, pure and simple. It entices the listener with sweet, delicate intros that lead into knock-down, fist-up, hard rock. There’s not a bad song on this album, but I’ll admit a personal affinity to “The Next Voice You Hear.” It’s been ten years since ATB released their last album, Resolution, but it’s been worth the wait. I can’t stop listening to it and I can’t keep from smiling. When the last fading notes of “On Your Way Sweet Soul” concludes the album, I breathe a satisfied sigh, and long for it to start again.
Don’t miss this stellar work of rock guitar mastery. You will not be disappointed. They start their US tour in support of Theme from a Perfect World on October 1st in Dallas. For dates and venues, go to www.andytimmons.com/news.
