The Jeff Healey Band - Feel This



En Feel This, Jeff Healey acentúa aún más su aproximación al hard rock, con montones de distorsión sazonando temas como: Baby's Lookin' Hot, Evil And Here To Stay e If You Can't Feel Anything Else, este último una tentativa poco feliz de mezclar rock con rap.
Un apunte del sonido: no puedo asegurar qué tuvo en mente el ingeniero de sonido al hacer su trabajo, pero el resultado, pleno de agudos, es simplemente terrible.
No obstante lo anterior, el álbum permite disfrutar de la bonita voz de Healey y de su peculiar estilo en la guitarra. Mis preferidas: My Kinda Lover, Joined At The Heart y las accesibles baladas: Lost In Your Eyes, de Tom Petty, y You Are Coming Home. ***
