Are you ready for virtuosic fusion from the year 2020, but available today? This masterpiece delivers on all fronts.
The musicianship is of course impeccable. Alex clearly has chops to spare, and having Terry Bozzio on drums speaks for itself.
But this album is by no means simply about technical display. The real joy comes, as it should, from the compositional excellence, which has it all: fresh creativity, stimulating complexity, unexpected twists and turns, layers of detail and nuance, plenty of soul, and humor and wit to boot.
And last but not least, the recording quality is fabulous, with crystalline clarity and transparency.
Very strongly recommended for any fan of fusion, especially guitar fusion!
