It's excellent! For sound quality and material. Some of Jeff's best work in years. I'm a big J.B. fan. He's one of the most underrated guitarist I know of.

"Maybe he owed his label one more album on the contract."
Mabe two. The "Jeff" release had some of the worst crap I've ever heard. I think some of it would have been perfect pinball machine music. Grease Monkey was the title I think. There were a couple good tracks, but otherwise it was ear-bleed. Or maybe it was "limp-ear". Hmmm.
I figured it out- mainly ear-bleed, with some limp-ear tossed in for good measure! ;-)
I still haven't bought it yet due to the roughly 50% -50% split on opinions on this disc, some say great, some say it's not so great.
Would you say it is comparable to Peter Gabriel's - Scratch My Back which also has an orchestra? I really like that cd.And specifically , is the sound quality of the Jeff Beck cd good?You guy's have thrown me off here with your varied opinions.
Boring Boring and more Boring. Not a thing that is original or even pretends to be original. Commercial dreck at its worst. Panders to the commonest of guitar drivel. Waste of a person's money and time. I thought maybe something that was not classical music like Beck would spark my interest in Rock music. Nope. Laughed at it and went back to something more listenable like plainchant. And of course I am serious.
well, i really like jeff beck, wired and blow by blow are great. a lot of his stuff is a bit disjointed, although he is a brilliant guitar player. that being said, 'bout a month ago, i was warming up the big rig for a listening session, and grabbed his "jeff" album, which came out just a few years back. let me tell you, what a fucking monster of a guitar album. kinda backs up everything people say about him. a "MUST" listen.
