Julien Kasper – Flipping Time

Another nice guitarist: not overdone, just what’s needed, a nice touch. The distorted guitar even sounds quite dirty at times: gotta love it!

This is an album of easily enjoyable rock, played by Julien on guitars with accompanying drums, bass and occasional Hammond (a real Hammond) all played by real musicians.

I took a particular delight in I Know, a piece with only a guitar doing nice effects, leading into the jazzy And Now We Know. A nice play on words and two pieces that work very well together.

All in all, Julien Kaper shows a lot of potential. I would like to hear him on a project with vocals as I’m sure he would be able to fit his guitar into place. Although I’m not saying he should stop making instrumental albums.

Definitely a worthwhile album.
