John Lowery (aka John 5) crafted a luxurious album in the form of God Told Me To. It might be all instrumentation and no vocals, but the material itself doesn't need a singer to speak to the listeners' needs - John 5's songwriting alone can do the trick. For every pulsating rock jam with some industrial undertones exists numbers which undergo a melodic approach, with this man's guitar licks and flamenco-like tapping hardly missing the record's pre-approved target. Unlike Buckethead, John 5 has no need to conjure over a hundred releases just to prove to the masses that he's talented; by no means am I saying the former's material is tedious on its own. To summarize, God Told Me To is an incredibly skilled and fun experience with noteworthy choice cuts in "Noche Acosador," this dude's cover of Michael Jackson's "Beat It," "The Lie You Live," and "Killafornia".
