Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is my personal favorite output by this brilliant guitarist. While he is probably better known around these parts as a contributor to several great fusion albums like Gong's Gazeuse, the man has put out some nice solo stuff as well. This album has fantastic production, compositions and performance. Holdsworth's distinct tone and unbelieveable phrasing lead the way in this modern jazz masterpiece. Though when I say modern jazz, I am only referring to the time of its release; the song styles are very reminiscent of older jazz. And when I say masterpiece, I mean a solid album made by a great guitar player. So I guess instead of "modern jazz masterpiece" I should say "recently released album of solid material reminiscent of older jazz made by a great guitar player."
