Paul Gilbert
Get Out Of My Yard
November 2006
Released: 2006, Mascot Records/Border Music
Rating: 2.5/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

Guitarist Paul Gilbert is mostly known from Racer X and Mr. Big. After that, he released solo albums that have established him as one of the few premier rock guitar players in the world. Apparently, his fans have craved an instrumental album for quite a while, and here it is, an entirely instrumental album with only bass, guitars, and drums.

Paul Gilbert explores a lot of different music genres on this album. He plays pure metal, rock’n’roll, progressive rock, and even classical music. He delivers it all in a confident way and yes, he’s skilled, but because everything is instrumental I get kind of bored after a while. The album is pretty long; Gilbert has squeezed in 14 tracks and he’s written all of the material himself except for the “Haydn Symphony no. 88 Finale” which, naturally, is written by the great composer Franz Joseph Hayden.

GET OUT OF MY YARD is an OK album but it doesn’t have any surprises, and after a few listenings I loose my attention. He’s a great guitarist, but I’m not a huge fan of instrumental albums so this is an album I’m pretty sure I won’t put in my CD player anymore.
