REVIEWER: MICHEL SCHEIJEN
Solo albums by session musicians usually have a taste of pretentious conceit. Due to convulsive complexity the listener will often lose all esteem. On False Poetry however, guitar player Joop Wolters is combining an unknown cohesion of virtuosity and musical delight.
But labeling False Poetry “socially acceptable”? No! It still remains a rock disc on which Joop Wolters plays the tricks of his trade. Melodic material which causes progrock or guitar lovers to froth. But this disc also distinguishes itself from comparable items because of its variety. Wolters has the insight not to lose himself in usury solos. He has the ability which session musicians often lack: creating interesting, instrumental rock. How does he do that?
False Poetry’s composition and operation is the link between masculine hardrock, fusion and world music. Eleven tracks share the delight of listening due to strong melody. Also essential for musical prevalence are the fusion elements which balance on the border of electronic chill-out. Pleasantly fresh! In terms of rhythm changes, this record is packed with poly rhythm or aberrant bars. Still, it remains pleasantly transparent and not too stilted. All in the name of marking time. Class does not deny itself!
False Poetry will reach high scores on many rockers’ year list!
