4 stars Back when BillY Idol was at his peak in the eighties, word was out that Steve Stevens was a phenominal guitarist. I never got that at the time, pigeonholing him as "the guitarist with the poser". Here, I began to understand what the buzz was about. Terry Bozzio and Tony Levin had a long track record of playing fantastic music, but Stevens' virtuosity in many styles was a revelation.

The disk begins with "The Sun Road", a song who's mood seems a bit reminiscent of post-Waters Pink Floyd, and ends up sounding something like the coda of King Crimson's "Larks' Tongues In Aspic IV". Following that is "Dark Corners", a sond that could have been on Crimson's "Red". Stevens shines on acoustic guitar on the Spanish-flavored "Duende".

Although the music is mostly improvised, there are quite a few twists and turns, mostly done flawlessly.

I highly recommend this to any hard rock fusion fan.
