Paul Gilbert
Get Out Of My Yard
October 2006
Released: 2006, Shrapnel Records
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

The first ever all instrumental from guitar virtuoso Paul Gilbert. This is the album fans expected years ago and have been begging for since day one when Paul first came on the scene. Melodic, fast, heavy, soothing…..it’s all here.



From the beginning you get an all out guitar assault that seems almost impossible to play. The first 38 seconds of the disc contains some of the fastest shredding you will ever hear in your life. It seems almost impossible to be humanly possible to play. From here on it is one diverse release with one key feature, amazing guitar work.



You get a bit of just about everything here from full on shredding and wailing to melodic pieces to relaxing melodies. Paul is un-mistakenly one of the most talented guitarists out there today. He draws from his background and influences for much of the disc all the while creating something totally unique and all his own.



Track’s like “Radiator” are Hendrix influenced while “My Teeth Are A Drumset” is just an all out Metal assault. “Marine Layer” is a fantastic mellow piece that shows a melodic and lighter side to Paul where “Hayden Symphony No. 88 Finale” showcases his classical playing abilities.



A very enjoyable disc even if you are not a player.

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.
