5 stars I can't think of a more entertaining guitar album than CGT's "Invitation". If you saw them open for King Crimson on the "Vrooom/Thrak" Tour in '95/'96, then the _live feel_ certainly transcends on this "studio" recording. You can even hear one the guitarists drop a guitar pick on "Train To Lamy Suite"(UNEDITED!). ;-)

"Above The Clouds" is sublime guitar menace with a contribution by Trey Gunn(of King Crimson) on Chapman Stick providing many colours. "Apache" is another highlight, and "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" has been turned into _high art_ here(for lack of a better term). You won't find a better version for three guitars on Bach's "Toccata And Fugue In D Minor".

In conclusion, I generally can't sit through an entire guitar album without falling asleep(with the exception of Sonny Sharrock's "Guitar"...errr, for obvious reasons!). :-) For that reason alone, CGT's "Invitation" gets five stars.

Gooner | 5/5 |
