Adam Hole & Mark Easton – Monster Guitars Live
Having reviewed one of Adam’s albums in the past, I was really looking forward to this collaboration with Mark Easton. From the onset, you can tell these guys have played together before. Big noise,
big riffs and big energy. If they added Satriani or Steve Vai to the mix, there’s another G3 right there.
Remember the scene out of Crossroads (no, not the Brittany Spears one) where there is a ‘guitar off’? That’s this whole album. Seriously, it’s an awesome, hour long jam session. Now, I’m not saying they’ve used ‘crowd in a can’ (they have) but it works so well and gives the album that proper live feel, you actually wish you were there. This is the record you put on when you’re preparing to go punch someone or get so drunk you forget your own name. Or both.
Either way, it’s another cool album from Adam Hole and great collaboration with Mark Easton.
