3 stars Patrick Rondat's second album from 1991 entitled Rape of the earth. An clear inprovement over the first but a little far from his later releases in terme of compact and choesive compositions, Rape of the earth is a good album for sure but doesn't shine like for ex On the edge. All instrumental album , Rondat has the enough space to show us what is capable in his domain, guitar orientated ralbums. It was a real surprise for me, really, because I found it more acceptable in musaical terms and more inventive than many well known guitarist like , Vai or Moore, in fact I like Rondat 100 time more than Vai, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate Vai's work. So this second album is a pleasent and wellwritten, some pieces are real killer like:Mindscape ,Barbarians At The Gates and the final one World Of Silence ( an acustic piece full of great guitar chops), the rest are great also. So this album desearves for sure 3 stars, a good one but the perfection will be done only on On the edge album from 1999.
