Johnny Marr - Call The Comet album
referencing Call The Comet, LP, Album, NVLP004. On the 3rd studio album under his name, the former Smiths guitarist delivers another batch of well-written & immaculately produced, soaring indie pop/rock tunes. Marr doesn’t have Morrissey’s voice, but his vocals are more than adequate, and his guitar-while never the only focus-shines through with a refined brilliance. His real strength may simply be that he uses his natural talent to full effect: presentation, arrangement and quality of songwriting all sound like the work of a consummate professional
Johnny Marr has had a varied and interesting career. Best known as the guitarist (and one of the two main creative forces) of the '80s British pop-rock giants The Smiths, in the thirty-plus years since that band's demise, he's been a member of The Pretenders, The The, Electronic, Modest Mouse, and The Cribs, and has done session work with a list of artists as long as a. Russian winter. Call the Comet is Marr's third solo album, following on the heels of 2013's The Messenger and 2014's Playland. He also put out a live recording, Adrenalin Baby, in 2015). The Messenger was absolutely first-rate, and while Playland was much less consistent, even that one had some really good songs, most notably the single "Easy Money". Call the Comet finds him back in top form.
It might be best to appreciate Call The Comet as a sublime soundtrack, possibly the most atmospheric, widescreen guitar album you'll hear all year.
Includes FREE MP3 version of this album. Especially the last song, A Different Gun. It reminds me of the first time I heard Johnny's guitars on Electronic's "Get the Message.
Cover art for Johnny Marr's new album 'Call The Comet' ( ). ★★★★☆. Download this: The Tracers, Hi Hello, New Dominions, My Eternal. Johnny Marr has taken his time declaring independence. The title of his autobiography, Set the Boy Free, described both the world-expanding imaginative jolts rock gave him in the 1970s, and the long process of shuffling centre-stage. Join Independent Minds. The muscle of the synth-powered 1980s Big Music which followed Bowie, early Simple Minds especially, also thrums through Call the Comet. Typically, The Tracers finds room in the rushing momentum of its final, wordless chorus for Rolling Stones harmonies, too. The chiming synths and urgently climbing guitars are at their most euphoric on My Eternal.
