Philip Sayce: Ruby Electric Review

Ruby Electric is the latest album from guitarist Philip Sayce, and is the follow up to 2010’s Innerevolution. Ruby Electric is split in two volumes. Volume 1 features five studio tracks and one live track, “Daydream Tonight.” Volume 2 consists of eight tracks recorded live on tour in France, Germany, and Holland in 2010.

Volume 1 begins with the sizzling “Let The Love In” featuring Melissa Etheridge. Sayce toured with Etheridge’s band for years prior to his solo career and that chemistry shows as “Let The Love In” is one of Ruby Electric’s standout tracks. Volume 1 continues with the upbeat “Set Us Free,” a live version of “Daydream Tonight,” and three more studio tracks, “King of New Mexico,” “Were You There,” and the title track.

Volume 2 kicks off with “Helios,” which rolls into an adrenaline pumping rendition of “One Foot In The Grave,” followed by “Powerful Thing” and “Slipaway.” Then Sayce delivers the beautiful instrumental “Alchemy” before bringing back the rock with “Take You Away.” The album closes with “Angels Live Inside” and an energetic performance of “Cinnamon Girl/I Want You.”

Philip Sayce has delivered once again with Ruby Electric. Not only is Sayce one of the finest blues rock acts going today, he is one of the best acts around period. If the next studio album is anything close to Innerevolution and Ruby Electric we are in store for something special.
