A. J. Rosales

Resistor is a very strong album of acoustic guitar-driven tunes that highlight Rosales’ excellent musicianship with an array of guitar styles that never fail to engage the listener. His voice is smooth and commanding enough to accentuate his fine guitar work, though the couple instrumentals here are interesting in their own right.

While some of the tunes (mostly due to the vocals) echo popular artists like Dave Matthews or Counting Crows, the best work here occurs during the album’s jam bits, like during the title track, when Rosales lets his guitar—with first-rate bass accompaniment—do the talking. His style is reminiscent of the late great Michael Hedges. Rosales is a little more bluesy and standard, but very refreshing nonetheless.

Favorite Track: Track 6, “Resistor”
