Review

There´s a lot of humour in the artwork of Kevin Windross´ new solo album "Broken brain", this album cover would fit a Frank Zappa record without doubt.
But the music don´t have much in common with Frank Zappa´s music, the only thing they have in common is that they´re both guitarists and both like to play guitar solos.
The first time I got to hear Kevin Windross was with his band Early Warning System and the 2007 release "Overworld", a really good EP that is recommendable if you like King´s X.
The next time was his solo EP "Loud and clear" from 2013 that has more of a classic rock sound, a solid EP but not as good as "Overworld".


Windross has also released the instrumental album "Standing outside circles" in 2009 and now unleash his latest offering "Broken brain", a 11 track record with everything a pop producer hates these days. Guitars, guitars and more guitars.
You can tell he´s been influenced by Joe Satriani without sounding like a carbon copy.
I think the music would be of interest if you´re into artists like Dave Sharman, Pyramids on Mars, Mahogany Head Grenade.
Windross probably spent a lot of time writing, recording and producing his new album so it would be disrespectful just to listen once and then have an opinion about it.
I thought about all the effort he put down in the making of "Broken brain" and all of a sudden, I could hear how much he loves to play guitar.
I´m not a fan of all songs but I do think the majority is pretty good where my favorite tracks are "La Dolce Vita", "Bite the bullet" and "Meticulous mechanic".
