GTR GTR CD (1986) 4.2 stars

Most supergroups don't last long, and GTR was no exception to the rule. Steve Hackett and Steve Howe -- lead guitarists for the prime periods of Genesis and Yes, respectively -- formed the band in 1986, not with the intention of reviving classic prog rock, but with the idea of making a stadium-shaking hard rock band. It was two veterans with very clear musical identities of their own, teamed with a trio of supporting musicians eager for a big break. Not the ideal formula for a perfect rock album, since the scales were already tipped toward one side as the recording began. And, GTR's lone eponymous album didn't deliver the fireworks that Howe and Hackett fans desired. Part of the problem is that the two guitarists crowd each other out; it rarely sounds like they're trading licks, but rather like they're stepping forward for solos at their pre-scheduled times. Despite the largely cool reaction of Hackett and Howe's dedicated fan base, GTR wound up being a respectable hit in America, thanks to the terrific leadoff track, "When the Heart Rules the Mind." The one track where the group's go-for-broke arena rock formula paid off huge dividends, this is anthemic, professional stadium rock at its best, with a great hook on the chorus, a fine performance by Max Bacon, and some nice, tightly controlled soloing. There are other moments that work pretty well on the record but, on the whole, the record feels a bit like a missed opportunity. There are glimmers of what might have been -- what GTR could have done if they dropped their crossover ambitions -- but as it stands, GTR marks the point in time when both Howe and Hackett took one last stab at commercially oriented rock, before turning toward more ambitious solo projects. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine Recorded at Townhouse Studios, London, England. Includes liner notes by Stephen Thomas Erlewine. GTR: Max Bacon (vocals); Steve Hackett, Steve Howe (guitar, keyboards); Phil Spalding (bass); Jonathan Mover (drums, percussion).

Gtr albums Recorded live at the Wiltern Theater, Los Angeles, California on July 19, 1986. Steve Howe and Steve Hackett's GTR was one of the shortest-lived supergroups, releasing only one album in 1986 and breaking up a year later. During that year, they gave a handful of concerts, and the live King Biscuit Flower Hour captures their virtues quite well, arguably even better than the studio record.

Not only are highlights from GTR are featured, but so are Yes' "Roundabout" and Genesis' "I Know What I Like," as well as the previously unreleased song "Prize Fighter." Both guitarists are in fine form, and their solos are generally jaw-droppingly accomplished and musical -- in ...
