"Other Planets" (Eski Music; 2009)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Erik Scott is the bassist for Sonia Dada and a studio bassist who has performed with the likes of Alice Cooper, Kim Carnes, Ted Nugent and many more. With a history like that, you might not be surprised at the variety of sounds on his CD, "Other Planets." What might surprise you is the type of music you'll find here.

"Other Planets" falls somewhere between the atmospheric vibe of experimental Pink Floyd and the "progressive" claptrap of John Tesh. Think of it as the music you hear when you visit the Rainforest Cafe for lunch or dinner and you'll get a general idea.

For the most part, "Other Planets" it's a pretty involving album although, for fans of hard rock and heavy metal, it will definitely get a little dull at times. It's New Agey music that you might hear on modern jazz stations and, while that's not necessarily a bad thing, it might not be what you're looking for if you're a regular reader of this website.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
