Lone Rhino is the debut solo album by Adrian Belew. The album was recorded following years of Belew playing as a supporting guitarist for Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, and shortly after his 1981 debut as the new lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist of King Crimson. It features musicians and repertoire from Belew's pre-King Crimson band, GaGa. A video was produced for the track "Big Electric Cat", shot in New York City and opens with a shot of the World Trade Center.

The guitar work is exceptional, varied, and unique- Belew deserves a place among guitar greats on the basis of this album alone. I fell in love with it when it was new- and unlike many, many albums, it hasn't lost much of its appeal to me over time. It's a no-brainer if you're a KC or Zappa fan, and offers much to anyone who appreciates the Bowie/ Gabriel school of early 80s art rock.

On Lone Rhino, his first solo release, Adrian plays guitar, sings, and pounds the skins like a pro. The music is upbeat, solid, entertaining and the lyrics are ingenious. Adrian uses effects/pedals like no one else and the unusual sounds he gets out of his guitar (roars, grunts, squeaks, atmospheric tones, et. are completely original and refreshing. Belew's first solo album has some of his sharpest songs on it. The Zappa and Beatles influences are all over the place but it's still uniquely Ade. From the stomping Big Electric Cat with its yowling guitar and backward drumming to Man in the Moon Ade's (I assume)moving song about his father, Lone Rhino is top notch. Meet The Beatles (or Please Please Me & With The Beatles if you're discussing the CD releases and/or vinyl releases throghout the world expect the US)wasn't The Beatles best. It was a remarkable blast.

1982's Lone Rhino was recorded after Belew had played on three of the most important recordings of the era after punk: David Bowie's Lodger (the third part of his Berlin trilogy), the Talking Heads' Remain in Light, and Discipline, the debut offering from the re-formed King Crimson. While the set's material is generally lighter and breezier, there is plenty of experimentation in both technique and production.
