Le premier CD reprend l'album sorti en 1986 après le départ d'Asia pour Steve Howe, qui se retrouve sans groupe (Yes a adopté Trésor Rabin en 1984 et Asia est virtuel depuis 1984). Il monte un projet avec l'ex guitariste de Genesis, Steve Hackett (qui bien plus tard travaillera avec feu le bassiste de Yes, chris Squire).
Il s'agit d'un album rock OAR, qui peut se rapprocher du premier album d'Asia, sans les claviers de geoff Downes bien que celui ci soit l'auteur d'un titre (la discorde d'Asia tenait plus de la mésentente avec John Wetton !).
Nous sommes loin du progressif, même si trainent des compositions instrumentales (une pour chacun des deux guitaristes), et la production est très ... métallique ! Les aiguës sont mal maitrisés. Je pensais qu'avec le remaster cela s'améliorerait : la qualité sonore est mieux que le premier pressage du CD mais identique à celui de l'édition japonaise sous format mini vinyle.
Le deuxième disque est celui du concert sorti par King Biscuit Flower Hour il y a quelques années (1996).Qualité sonore correcte sans plus.

Cela dit, l'album a des qualités indéniables notamment le titre d'ouverture (ainsi qu'Imagining et Toe the line) que j'ai toujours beaucoup aimé et qui aurait pu faire un hit si la maison d'édition avait suivi. Malheureusement l'expérience ne durera que le temps d'un album studio.
A noter que le chanteur principal est Max Bacon, voix puissante qui l'on trouvera sur deux albums de Mike Oldfield (Islands, Earth Moving). Jonathan Mover jouera plus tard avec Joe Satriani. Phil Spalding, le bassist, rejoindra aussi Mike Oldfield.

Osez réunir deux guitaristes de génie du rock progressif britannique des 70's en 1985 au sein d'un groupe de rock FM se révélait assez risqué. Pourtant c'est ce que fut GTR. Steve Hackett, ex Genesis, et Steve Howe, ex Yes et ex Asia, s'allient dans un combo mariant très habillement leurs références prog', leurs virtuosités, mais aussi et surtout une bonne dose de rock taillée pour les ondes, venant rendre plus accessibles leurs propos.

Au final, nous avons un album très agréable à écouter, et qui en dépit d'un style très 80's, n'en demeure pas moins bien produit pour l'époque par le comparse de Steve Howe, Geoff Downes (claviériste de Yes en 79/80, Asia, The Buggles). Le remaster ne fait cependant pas de mal à cet album trentenaire.

Pour cette nouvelle édition 2015, la petite boîte spécialiste des rééditions de musique progressive, Esoteric Records, propose un second CD, contenant une des rares prestations live du groupe. Le son est fort correct, l'ambiance tout aussi sympathique, et ce malgré une set-list qui a un peu de mal à trouver son identité entre tubes calibrés pour les radios et standards du rock progressif british issus des répertoires des deux Steve.

Le seul regret de ce projet est qu'ils n'aient pas pu se développer davantage, ne serait-ce que dans une second disque, que le groupe aurait mérité de pouvoir réaliser.

Cet album unique produit par Geoff Downes (Asia) et bénéficiant d'un duo de guitaristes exceptionnel Steve Hacket Steve Howe est tout simplement étonnant... 2 guitaristes/claviers principaux avec un chanteur principal (Max Bacon) un bassiste et un batteur de qualité c'est un groupe unique en son genre... Des arrangements de guitarre uniqueS rythmés par une batterie "punchy" un excellent premier morceau hacket/howe en format "tube" "when the heart rules my mind" suivi du planant "the hunter" 2 solos de guitarre des 2 steve un chacun ... Pas de dechet : on se laisse entrainer par un album dense varié avec des ruptures rythmiques et sons originaux... Entre Asia et Genesis/Mike and the Mechanics... Vraiment dommage qu'il n'y ait pas eu de suite...

HASH(0x9289e5c4) étoiles sur 5 Great Album--Negativity, Be Gone 16 juillet 2012
Par Jeremy L. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
How anyone could give this album a negative review is beyond me. It's great! I mean, you have a member of Yes, a member of Asia, and a member of Genesis; the singer Max Bacon is the absolute PERFECT fit as vocalist of this band. The band sounds somewhat like Yes but without as much time devoted to long instrumentals and with more of a pop feel. It is much more easily digestible than classic Yes, which is very complex and intricate. The band has a great enjoyable style that is their own and I wish they had made more albums; anyhow, there's really not a bad track on the album and it's a great listen overall. Ignore the fact that they were critics' whipping boys back in the 80s, look at the crap that passes for music now! At any rate, no one could accuse them of not knowing what they were doing on this album as they were already established artists beforehand, and what's wrong with being more radio-friendly/easy to listen to? I highly recommend this album.

HASH(0x9289e618) étoiles sur 5 A rare eighties gem 22 août 2011
Par D. Otto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
GTR 1986. featuring Phil Spalding, Steve Hackett, Jonathan Mover, Steve Howe, and Max Bacon.

GTR came together following Steve Howe's leaving from Asia (1985). Teaming up with Steve Hackett of "Genesis" Adding Bass guitarist Phil Spalding and drummer Jonathan Mover and finally gaining strong vocal talent from singer Max Bacon.
GTR released one self-titled album (Arista Records November 1986). This gold album had two fairly big hits
"When the Heart Rules the Mind" hit #14 and "The Hunter" which topped at #85. The album as a whole hit #11 on the charts. That was about it as the band slowly crumbled after a North American and Europian tour.

This album is now in cd form only as an import and runs a few bucks. I truly believe it to be worth every dime. It has a definite eighties sound to it but, as that this was prime of life time for these great talents, it is a must have for anyone familiar with the groups they all came from.

HASH(0x9289e8f4) étoiles sur 5 Not the punching bag many would have you believe. Great Album. 2 avril 2015
Par Sean Moloney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
FIRST OFF: If you can track down the 2001 remaster of this album it's well, WELL worth it. The Production/Mix was this album's biggest issue and the remaster solves that. Space is opened up between the instruments and you can clearly hear which guitarist is playing what. It also gives Max Bacon's voice room to soar. (More on that to come.) loved this album back in the day and the remaster just makes me love it more.

For those not aware, GTR was a one-off project for renowned Guitarists Steve Hackett (Genesis), and Steve Howe (Yes, Asia). It was hyped as "The Ultimate Guitar Album", understandably. Here's where the bad reputation this album has begins, but I'll get to that. Completing the line-up were 3 younger, less known but still experienced musicians. Jonathan Mover on Drums, Phil Spalding on Bass, and Max Bacon on vocals. They went into the studio with Geoff Downes, the KEYBOARDIST, yes, KEYBOARDIST from Asia (And I'm a huge Asia fan) producing. That's issue #2. Upon release the album took a beating from the critics and many of Hackett and Howe's longtime fans. However it did produce a justifyably huge hit single, "When the Heart Rules the Mind". Tensions between the band and the 2 guitarists emerged and after one tour they split up, leaving only this album and a live album as their legacy. They've largely been forgotten, unless used as a punching bag for critics and prog snobs, and it remains somewhat of a joke to this day.

So how could a project with so much promise go as wrong as some Fans/Critics would have you believe? Most people point the finger squarely, and vehemently at singer Bacon. I'm here to get that Monkey off his back. He, not Hackett or Howe, is the star of this album. Period. His voice is powerful, emotional, and has a crystal clear delivery most of his 80's peers would kill for. No, he's not a Prog singer like Greg Lake, Jon Anderson or Peter Gabriel in his Genesis days, but Bacon is a GREAT, GREAT, GREAT rock singer. If you need any further proof, listen to the demos of the unreleased 2nd GTR album with Robert Berry trading lead with Bacon. Good Lord. Imagine any of those singers singing the chorus of "You can still get through" and tell me you wouldn't rather have Bacon. For further proof, find his Solo album "From the banks of the river Irwell". which is an absolutey brilliant retrospective of his sadly short career. Max, all is forgiven. Obviously Hackett and Howe are their usual brilliant selves, Spalding is a good solid Bassist and I've always loved Jonathan Mover's creativity, and really loved his work with Joe Satriani. The musicianship on this album is beyond compare and what you might expect from such accomplished artists.

The songs are mostly all very strong, with great hooks and melodies you would expect from this collection of musicians. "When the Heart rules the Mind" is as good as any 80's hit single, but better because of the musicians. A chorus that will be in your head for days, an ultra catchy guitar ine to kick the song off, and Bacon just blows the song away, stating that he's going to be the focal point of this album. "The Hunter", co-written by producer Downes, is not a highlight but the note Bacon hits at the end will make any other singer green with envy. "Here I wait" is one of the best songs on the album. Hackett and Howe are in usual form and Bacon just WAILS. Howe's accoustic solo "Sketches in the Sun" is fantastic, as is Hackett's solo "Hackett to Bits". "Jekyll and Hyde" starts with a great guitar riff and some great creative Mover fills. Bacon shines as usual. "You can still get through" is one of my 2 favourite songs on here. Admittedly, the lyrics on the whole album are a bit lacking, but the chorus of "Someday you're gonna fly, to the edge of world. You just have to believe you can still get through." is Bacon's finest moment, and is one of those moments that reminds us how powerful music can be. "Reach Out" is a weaker song but still showcases Bacon, while "Toe the line" is maybe the weakest song on here, but very listenable because of Howe's pedal steel work. Closer "Imagining" is the closest to what this album should have been. A great accoustic intro by Hackett leads into a driving rocker propelled by some truly outstanding work by Mover, and as usual, Bacon drives the song. Great, great song that deserves to be mentioned among Prog-Rock classics. The songs do sound a bit dated as do all 80's recordings, but the quality of songwriting and the performance by the great musicians more than makes this a very listenable album even nearly 30 years later.

Ok, so what actualy went wrong? Well, promoting this as "The Ultimate Guitar album" is somewhat misleading. "The most innovative Guitar album" is far more realistic. Both Hackett and Howe use a ton of then-revolutionary synths attatched to their Guitars, making a lot of the Guitar work sound like Keyboards. (Perfect example, the synth line in the chorus of "You can still get through" is played by Hackett on his Guitar fitered through a synth.) A lot of it was really innovative, but it wasn't want Hackett/Howe fans wanted. Finally, getting a Keyboard player to produce "The Utimate Guitar album" was just a bad idea. Downes is a very good Keyboardist and producer, and I love Asia, but he synthesized way too much on this album and the finished product suffers from it. Arista wanted an 80's sounding, bombastic, overproduced album and that's exactly what Downes gave them.Finally, the mix is very Tinny and compressed, taking away a lot of the detailed intricate playing Hackett and Howe are known for. Again, the remaster of the album solves that issue.

This album could have, SHOULD have, been way better than it is, but it's still a great listen, with great performances from great musicians and fantastic songs that could still be hits today. I have always loved this album, and even saw them live. It's a shame they never did more because with the right producer they may have realized their full potential. I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves great melodies, big hooks, and musicians at the top of their performance. Obviously Hackett and Howe are legends, Mover went on to do great work with Joe Satriani, Fuel, and as a session musician. Spalding has always been an in demand session Bassist, (He played on Right Said Fred's "I'm too Sexy" single.) but Max Bacon hasn't done much. sadly because he's a brilliant singer and one of my favourite vocalists. For me, this album is strong start to finish and in some ways ahead of it's time. Give it a chance and listen to it for what it is, a great Pop-Rock album.

HASH(0x9289ee1c) étoiles sur 5 Great CD re-release but MP3 buyer beware. 26 septembre 2015
Par H.G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
It's great to see this classic album re-released, and with a really nice packaging and liner notes. HOWEVER . . . for buyers that settle for purchasing the MP3 version instead of the actual discs, be prepared for disappointment. Although I purchased the CD set, I also engaged the auto-download using my Amazon Music player. What I discovered on my first play-through was that the song "Here I Wait" has problems. There are very brief dead spots at 2:32 and at 3:30, the result sounds like skips. BUT . . . when I listened to the CD version, the same song is fine -- no skips. When I manually ripped the CD to MP3's, there were no problems. So, this must be a case of Amazon having a bad MP3 source for this album.
HASH(0x9289e6d8) étoiles sur 5 and I loved it. I wore the tape out playing it 23 mars 2015
Par Jeff Potts - Publié sur Amazon.com

You know, I had this album in the late 1980s, and I loved it. I wore the tape out playing it, but never picked up the CD. I feel lucky to have found this again.

You might want to describe GTR as a half-step between a pop-oriented Asia with the classic Yes sound, and even a little of the Tervor Rabin Yes influence in there as well. There is a genuine timelessness and maturity here in the songwriting that is really hard to describe. But should you listen to it, you'll find that the songs do mot sound dated in the least (and we're 20+years out from when this album was released).

It was a cryin' shame this group broke up after their first album. The only complaint I really had about this album is the mix - very treble-ly, and a tad too much reverb. But that doesn't stop me from listening it to it regularly these days.
