ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Stus Rollins' third album for Alien Resurrection Records is an all out Rock & Roll guitar instrumental anthology, that reflects his influences over the past three decades of Guitar Hero's since Jimi Hendrix.
He has stripped everything back to the bare essentials in order to let the lead guitar play the major role.
Each track tells a story and delivers chunk after chunk of big fat guitar sounds and bright metallic lead lines.
His best playing to date with some of the finest rock music to be heard in a long time from a solo artist
" Rock Guitar is alive and well" ( Jon Astley)

Talk Rock, Stus Rollins' Amugdala
“Rock Guitar is alive and well, Amygdala is a great sounding record.” (Jon Astley Mastering Engineer, The Who, George Harrison )
Talk Rock (review)
Twelve tracks of pure Rock & Roll guitar heroics here from Stus Rollins second release for Alien Resurrection. From the tight punchy opening track, ‘The Calling’ ( his epitaph for the deceased members of Lynyrd Skynyrd) the album takes the high road and sets the bar high. Throughout the album there is an anthology of sound bites that catalogue the various events that have helped shape his style and approach to the electric guitar. Amygdala tells a story of all things Rock & Roll from Jimi Hendrix to the more modern guitar hero’s like Steve Vai, Jo Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, Greg Howe and Scott Henderson. The album also likes to remind us of those infamous string benders that are no longer with us, such as Randy Rhodes and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Amygdala really kicks in with ‘ Land of Hope’ and then delivers track after track showing us his mastery of the instrument from blues to fusion, with a taste of metal from the awesome ‘Metal Head’. It’s an honest straight up guitar album the likes of which we haven’t seen for a while. There is little time to rest as it comes at you with slab after slab of chunky riffs and big fat guitar solos in a wide crisp stereo field. ( an ode to his abilities as producer and engineer)There is time to put your feet up though during tracks like ‘All I Want’ which has a the only smattering of vocals from Stus before the lush landscape of the lead guitar melody comes to take you away. Then it’s back to business… listen out for the blues fusion on ‘ This is Howe’ ( Greg Howe inspired) then the hallucinogenic metal mayhem of ’ Road to Eleusis ‘. ” Great Stuff ”
There is a sense of humour that comes through in his playing though, sometimes tight and expressive or loose and free like on the super heavy’ Blues for Eddie’ or the offbeat mix of funky fusion found on’ Miles & Miles’. Grab the missis on the lonely waltz time ballad that is ‘Amygdala’ and dance to a thousand guitar notes.
A full hour of entertainment is what you get from the album Amygdala if you are into all things guitar and I mean electric guitar, loud and heavy. It left me happy, exhausted and begging for more. A disc you will want to keep spinning.
