Good Sequel to Are You Experienced

Are You Experienced was a groundbreaking record. It would be very hard for Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding, and Mitch Mitchell to duplicate such an effort. However, there are plenty of strong moments on Axis: Bold As Love.

The title track is probably the strongest track. The melody is quite captivating and the tones shift very nicely from loud to soft. A good drum sequence transitions the song to a enjoyable conclusion.

Little Wing is probably the most familiar tune for those not so familiar with Hendrix tunes. Its a song that touches on Jimi's sensitive side. You've Got Me Floating has a nice groove if a limited melody Wait Until Tommorow has a hip chorus with nice backing vocals. She's So Fine touches on the psychedelic as Noel Redding gives that flavor with his vocal style.

The remaining songs are certainly pretty good even if their melodies are not overly captivating. The guitar playing is solid if not overly varied. Nonetheless, a solid three-three and a half star rating sounds fair.
