4 stars James Murphy - "magic fingers" as many like to call him, is an american famous guitarist who beggins his career or colaboration with bands sometimes around 1987 with Agent Steel - first attemp to destroy everything around him with his guitar. With many colaborations over the years on one or more albums in bands like Obituary, Testament, Death, Cancer or Disincarnate (his first band , death of the highest calibre) Mr. Murphy proves he is one of the best musician in his field and among the top notch guitarist in last 20 years. His sherding sound and inovative solos and damn catchy riffs , intelligent manner of aproaching the instrument James Murphy release his solo album only in 1996 named simply - Convergence. With some top notch guest musicians on this album like Castronovo on drums (from Ozzy fame), Chuck Billy (vocals of Testament), Devin Townsend or Matt Guillory (Dali's Dilemma) among others, James Murphy composed all the pieces and release a solid album full of catchy pieces with a toutch of progressive metal but melted very well with his shreding guitar sound who interplays with the rest of the musicians in a great unison. So, to this first album I will give 3.5 rounded to 4 stars, that means a solid album, not as good as the next one who is a real treasurte, but worth investigate for sure.Recommended
