Resolution, from the Andy Timmons Band is an impressive monument of extraordinary guitar-texture-aggressive, inspired, blissful, and simply irresistible. Bolstered by Timmons' blazing virtuosity and immaculate song craft, the record is an imaginative marriage of studied dynamics, smoldering grooves and hard-hitting musicality.
Recorded in Dallas, Resolution was co-produced by Timmons and bassist Mike Daane, with drummer Mitch Marine rounding out the band lineup. "This is the first real official Andy Timmons Band release," asserts Timmons. "When we first formed in 1988, we began to record a series of demos that eventually became ear X-tacy. These tracks mainly featured Mitch and Mike but due to occasional unavailability, other players were used. In a way Resolution is the very first unified band effort and the initial idea for half of the songs were written as a trio."
Andy Timmons is quickly becoming one of my favorite guitarists. A Gem!
That Was Then This is Now features 11 tracks compiled from ear X-tacy 1 and 2 (newly re-mastered!), plus 5 new tracks featuring the original Andy Timmons Band line-up of Mitch Marine on drums and Mike Daane on bass.
