Brad held NR down well in the 90s when they were down to just a power trio. The whammy bar style is cool, but can't compete with Jeff's five-finger technique. Solo album for solo album, I'll take Around the Sun over Gilrock Ranch any day. It's a tough call though, two totally different styles... Brad with the melody, Jeff with the technique. It's a coin toss here, but I went with Jeff.

I went with Brad, Jeff's a better technical player but to me Brad plays with more feel. If you had asked me the same question 10 years ago I would have went with Jeff.

Gillis... I may be in the minority, but I think he did some very interesting work on Feeding Off The Mojo... Watson's Mother's Army project, for the most part, left me cold -- such a promising line-up and the resulting albums are just, to put it bluntly -- dull... Not that I don't like Jeff Watson's playing; I just prefer more of what Gillis does better...
