3 stars Another steaming hot helping of jaw-dropingly complex and energetic jazz/rock fusion from the most enjoyable and exciting band in the game. Seventh Galaxy features a rock-oriented set of songs demanding quite a bit from the listener-- but the payoff is worth it. The compositions here are intricate and more cerebral than on other RTF releases, but are just as catchy and exciting to listen to. Connor's guitar may lack the finesse of DiMeola's, but his hard riffing, coupled with the never ending explosion of creative playing from the rhythm section makes this one a satisfying listen for the fusion fan.

While not as accessible as Romantic Warrior (which is more varied and elegant), Seventh Galaxy should be seriously considered by any fans of instrumental music; I can't imagine its dynamic and virtuosic sound disappointing.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: NA Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
