Try Columbia!

ReneS

"Columbia" is for my part the greatest song on this album. It's an incredible instrumental with a thriving groove and if you like that you are well advised to try the whole album.

Eric, Why don't you write a movie soundtrack?

Best since Vox

Great playing and variety

bigstrings

Eric Johnson includes much variety here, from blues to guitar anthems to country pickin' to jazz. There's something for everyone, even some vocal tunes with a pop feel.

Eric Johnson witha Britney Spears vibe...kind of strange.

Thank you Eric!

StringMan

Just when it's one of those months when I'm wondering if I'll find good stuff to "use up" my track quota, I find Eric Johnson has released his latest through eMusic. Way to go Eric! All the other reviewers are spot on - this is one of the best musicians of our time. Download it!

The Master Of The Electric Guitar!!

As far as I'm concerned Eric Johnson is the man. I've been a fan for years. I just wished his album releases would come around alot sooner. But after all, he is a perfectionist.

A master songwriter and musician

Eric Johnson is one of the most underappreciated musicians in the world. He writes excellent songs, plays awesome guitar, and has a terrific singing voice. His albums all contain songs with a great variety, from acoustic guitar and piano to kick-ass shredding, some with vocals and some without. Bloom is one of his best.

Great album... melt your ears.

joemanifesto

This is a great album, you'll star the "hot prelude" croosing by a "warmy courante" for a "melting allemande"... unfortunatly I had only 9 downloads. Downloading the full album is a great idea.

They Say All Music Guide

It’s no secret that the time gap between albums by guitarist Eric Johnson is on par with such notorious ‘hibernators’ as Boston. And the arrival of his fourth all-new studio release, Bloom, was no different, as it appeared nearly nine years after the release of 1996′s Venus Isle. Whereas most guitar heroes of the late ’80s and early ’90s were all about reeling off a zillion notes per second, Johnson was the exception, as he penned songs that saw his guitar supplying the melody where a voice could have been. This 16-track release (his second for Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label) is split into three separate sections — ‘Prelude,’ ‘Courante,’ and ‘Allemande’ — which are supposedly “grouped together in terms of vibe and style.” Highlights include “Summer Jam” (which does a splendid job of showcasing his guitar tone), the chicken’-pickin’ ditty “Tribute to Jerry Reed,” and the almost Steely Dan-esque “Magnetized.” If you like your sounds raw and gritty and music off-the-cuff, Bloom isn’t the place for you. But for die-hard fans, Johnson delivers once more, as all his trademarks are well represented — chops, tone, and extremely fluid playing. – Greg Prato
