In a few words:

This album is probably the calmest album of this talented (but also eccentric) guitarist. Brian Patrick Carroll is better known for his collaboration with Guns 'N Roses, Iggy Pop, Serj Tankian, Bill Moseley, Mike Patton and others. He has already released 29 solo albums! Electric Tears is his 9th release and is characterized by the use of two only instruments: an acoustic and a electric guitar. Very calm and atmospheric, this album is recommended for relaxing. I should definitely point out that "Sketches Of Spain" is dedicated to the memory of Miles Davis and is an awesome cover!!!

Personal highlights:
"All In The Waiting", "Sketches Of Spain (For Miles)" and "Angel Monster"
