Despite the low score, I would still recommend this highly to anyone who appreciates good guitar playing. It's a masterclass in fingerstyle guitar and if I was rating on technical ability this album would get five stars. But it suffers the same problem a lot of solo instrumental albums have -- the music is beautiful, but it all blurs together and very little of it is memorable after it has finished.

Bob Catley - The Tower (1998)

1 Dreams ****
2 Scream ****
3 Far Away ****
4 Deep Winter ***
5 Fire and Ice ****
6 Madrigal ****
7 Steel ****
8 The Tower ****
9 Fear of the Dark ****
10 Epilogue (Instrumental) ***

I'm not sure if Bob deliberately set out to make an album that sounded just like classic mid-period Magnum, but that's exactly what this is. Naturally this rockets straight into the top 10.

Bob Catley - Live at the Gods (1999)

1 Dreams ***
2 Scream ****
3 Far Away ****
4 Deep Winter ***
5 Lonely Night ****
6 Fire and Ice ***
7 On a Storyteller's Night ****
8 The Tower ***
9 Fear of the Dark ****
10 Just Like an Arrow ****

Album score: 65.0

The recording doesn't really capture the atmosphere that a Bob Catley gig has, so it doesn't score as highly as it should do. A nice album but for completists only I think.

7 A Beautiful Night for Love ****

It's more of the same really, and Bob sounds a soog as ever. But the songs don't have the same hooks that made The Tower outstanding. This is just... ok.

It's nice to see some more complex song writing, but it doesn't always work out. It's an album with some great moments that feels like it out to be better than it is.

Chain - Eros of Love and Destruction (1997)

1 Don't Waste Your Time *
2 Absence of Angels **
3 Shame ***
4 Fake it Big Time *
5 Streets Cry Freedom ***
6 Single Life ***
7 Hellfire **
8 What About Me **
9 I.N.M **
10 Blind Faith *
11 State of Independence ***

Album score: 27.3

Dougie White has a great voice but these songs are a bit too heavy metal, and that's not where my tastes lie. Stand-out tracks are the more subtle ones that show off the versatility of Dougie's voice. As for the rest... well, if you're a Guns n' Roses fan who wished they'd had a decent singer, you will probably love this album.
