4 stars This record evokes the uniqueness of CYNYC'S FOCUS, an extraordinary performance, revealing the technical capabilities of the players, that actually is the least thing to say, beacuse the compositions are quite complex and "fusion-like" with a lot of reseamblance of Mr. Pastorius and Mr. Colaiuta. So, the only weak point in here is the vocals, you know? a very straight metal outfit, remembering the late Michael Kiske or very early Maiden things, however is "heavy metal" and the treatment had to be with vocals, but nothing else. If this record wouldn't feature vocals, it surely might be featured in the fusion or progressive counter at Tower records. So, enjoy, beacuse the music is very hard to swallow, you need to digest it at least twice to understand the real power of the melodies.
