This disc is the musical equivalent of a 44 ton sixteen wheeler hurtling downhill with no brakes. Mr. Stump just does not let up for an instant in the pace or ferocity of his playing. If you know of Yngwie Malmsteen, he does not play as cleanly. If you know of Vinnie Moore, he does not equal his breadth of style. But one thing is for sure, nobody, and I mean *nobody* plays with as much fire as this guy.
There's a feeling of "heard one track, heard them all" initially, but give it time. Turn up the volume and surrender.
