READ

Uncut
The jammy “Rice Pudding” and “The Hangman’s Knee” almost have a smile around the edges. With takes on Elvis and assaults on BB King covers, Beck-Ola stands strong, without ever indicating it satisfied the mainman’s restless spirit. […]

Ultimate Classic Rock
As he did with the Yardbirds’ gem ‘Shapes Of Things’ on ‘Truth,’ he reworks the Presley tune here, taking it from a simple, bouncy little rocker and transforming it into a growling, blusey stomper. […]

Rolling Stone
Outside of Jorma of the Airplane, Beck plays the most unpredictable guitar lines in rock, yet manages to combine them with a heavy blues feeling. He is capable of enormous speed and precision, yet his technique is almost always in service to a fertile, bizarre imagination. […]
