John Wesley - a way you’ll never be album review
Former Portcupine Tree sideman John Wesley flares up on hard rock opus.
John Wesley’s new album features a flaming man on the cover. Don’t worry, no one was burned during the making of a way you’ll never be. That said, one imagines Wesley singed his fingers on the fretboard during the scorching title track. His bandmates, drummer Mark Prator and bassist Sean Malone, navigate hairpin turns during the song’s lengthy instrumental interplay, often reminiscent of Rush’s Natural Science. Wesley even emulates Alex Lifeson’s solo guitar sound.
