What Lies Beneath = Digipack = (CD)
Though Robin Trower found his greatest career success in the mid-1970s, his intensely soulful brand of Jim Hendrix-inspired psychedelic blues-rock guitar playing helped him maintain a healthy audience decades past his commercial heyday. During his long career he worked with several different singers, most notably ex-Stone the Crows bassist James Dewar. Surprisingly, however, Trower himself never assumed sole lead vocal duties until 2009's WHAT LIES BENEATH. Fortunately, the veteran rocker reveals himself to be possessed of earthy, R&B-influenced pipes often reminiscent of J.J. Cale and Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler. On the majority of tracks, including highlights "Time and Emotion" and "Wish You Were Mine," the London native favors a mellower, more ethereal approach that will please lovers of vintage fan favorites "Daydream" and "I Can't Wait Much Longer." That said, there are a few nods to Trower's "Day of the Eagle"/"Too Rolling Stoned"-style power-blues numbers of yore, especially on the viciously funky, Thin Lizzy-esque "Skin and Bone" and the muscular, hooky "Freefall." As with the majority of Robin Trower's catalog, however, the most striking feature about WHAT LIES BENEATH is the man's utter mastery of electric guitar tone and phrasing, and this is ultimately what will put listeners under the virtuoso axe-slinger's aural spell.
