EWAN DOBSON

Acoustic Metal

(Candyrat Records)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 7.5

Cool idea here, Canuck acoustic six-stringer Ewan Dobson stripping metal down to an unplugged format that is not wimpy, hokey, or horribly demo-quality. And it works, most fascinating aspect being how much acoustic metal sounds like something you'd hear on the sidewalk in Mexico or late at night in L.A. or something, the Latin sounds that happen when you take thrash riffs and play 'em fast on an acoustic humorously awesome. This double CD breaks down as such: the first disc is 15 tunes, including two IN FLAMES covers, and a cover of the Halloween theme song; the second CD has everything from the first CD without the drum tracks so you can really pop a boner over the guitar playing, plus seven more (!) tunes, including a JASON BECKER cover, a cover of a Mega Man 2 song (hey, is that a girl over there? Get out of here, now!), and a song based on the Nightmare On Elm Street theme. Okay, it's all a lot to handle, so here's what I say: put on disc one, listen to it for about 20 minutes at a time, on headphones, and let it soak in. There's a reason that Dobson is known in the fingerpicking/classical guitar scenes, and it's very cool that he's taking some time to get back to his metal roots here.
