Pulling songs from various projects, this album is a fine example of the music of Jimi Hendrix as he apparently was leaving the sounds of Electric Ladyland and moving on to other things. The guitar playing is typical Hendrix. His voice is pushed to the front a little more than in the past. And, you can also hear some of the music that Alan Douglass almost ruined with horrible overdubs. Those have been stripped and what you have left is the music. As stated in the All Music review, you have no way of knowing exactly where Hendrix would have gone with this music had he lived. But, the family has done a good job of presenting it to us in a way that is enjoyable.
In the end First Rays Of The New Rising Sun is a far cry from the exploitive posthumous cash-ins that riddle the discographies of most rock artists who pass away at a young age, succeeding in nothing save tainting the musician's reputation with an embarrassing, half-baked unfinished album. While the album may have been released for cynical reasons it remains a strong outing that in no way tarnishes Hendrix's image. The closest thing to a true fourth studio album that one can ever hope to find, FRotNRS is a true Hendrix LP, filled with the skillful songwriting and stunning performances that one would expect to find on a real Hendrix album.
