I am a fan of Neal schon and can agree on all the others reviews on the level of Musicianship, and a very underrated player. I have always thought of Neal Schon as a Diverse artist, and although this CD is obviously aimed at the rock fan, I find it a bit one dimensional all the tracks seem to be the same. and I think Neal should distance himself from Steve Vai who was involved with this production, as in my eye Neal is sounding like He wanted to compete with Joe Satriani, with this style of playing and programmed backing and drums, best to leave all that stuff to Joe, and Neal in my opinion is better than that. Neals Guitar playing is more flexible and can create more than this CD offers. BUT I am not knocking Him.
