Album of the Day
Six years after his last studio album, two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jeff Beck delivers the goods once again with LOUD HAILER. The name refers to a megaphone, and the new Atco collection isn’t shy about speaking its mind - its topical lyrics make striking statements about everything from the love of power, to the power of love. To help him write the 11 songs on LOUD HAILER, the legendary performer enlisted two fierce young females from London, fellow guitarist Carmen Vandenberg and singer Rosie Bones; the core trio was joined in the studio by drummer Davide Sollazzi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti. From the intense opener “The Revolution Will Be Televised” and riotous rocker “Live In The Dark” (the set's first single) to the reflective ballad “Scared For The Children” and instrumental “Pull It,” Jeff Beck's fluid fretwork dazzles throughout LOUD HAILER.
