Wes Borland - Crystal Machete album review

Album Review

Nu-metal nimrod Wes Borland in decent album stunner.

For all right-thinking people, multi-million selling nu-metal band Limp Bizkit are as much fun as swimming through sewage. That’s a big and ugly obstacle to get past. All the more startling, then, that their guitarist Wes Borland, who’s left and rejoined twice, has made a palatable solo debut, nothing like his Black Light Burns side-project. Belying his usual onstage dress sense, it’s a set of varied, thoughtful instrumentals, with, perhaps, half on eye on landing film-score commissions. The opening overture bears the title Main Titles, the finale, End Credits.
