5 stars One of the best guitarcentered albums I've ever heard! This will either make you want to learn how to play guitar, or actually make you give up on playing it as after listening to how godly Al Di Meola is on the guitar you might feel like a complete failure! There are no vocals on this album, so purely instrumental, but that doesn't bother me at all.

I think "Race With Devil on Spanish Highway" is my favourite track of this album, it features great bass and the song with it's countless tempo shifts does make you feel like you're in a race of some sort!

All other tracks are great too. The only weak point about this album is that most songs end with a fade-out, I prefer it when songs end with an ending, and not a fade-out, but that's probably just a matter of taste.

Highly recommended to anyone that loves guitar music or good music in general (hehe).
