John Frusciante is the guitarist from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. On top of that, he has a hell of a solo career.
His latest (10th) solo album, The Empyrean, was released on the 20th worldwide bar the US (due to an error at the duplication plant). You can however, download the album at all major online outlets. It truly is, in my opinion, a beautiful piece of work and definitely one of the best albums of 2009.
As has been said about the album, it is best to listen to this in the darkness of your living room. Or as I did, with my eyes closed lying on my bed. The guitar work is amazing and the melodies and harmonies feel like they come straight out of Frusciante's soul (which they do).
I've probably ranted enough about it, you can check out the third track, Unreachable, at his myspace here.
And while you're at it, feel free to check out any of his other solo work. I would recommend the albums Shadows Collide With People and Curtains for starters.
EDIT: Oh and one note about The Empyrean... don't judge it based on Unreachable alone. While a badass track, each track is amazing in different ways. And the album as a whole is greater than all the parts.
