5 stars Steve MORSE is one of those guitar players that compel you to say - It's over? No more? Come on, I want more! You wish his playing would never end because he is such an incredible genius with the six-string. He is easily one of the top ten guitarists in the world today.

On "Major Impacts 2" he continues to humble himself before his peers by dedicating another unbelievable volume of work in their image. Think about if for one minute, here we have one of the best players in the world telling everyone without uttering a single word, with music alone, who his influences are and why he sounds like he does today. Not everyone would create an album like this. He was the driving force behind DIXIE DREGS and now fills the shoes of the great Ritchie Blackmore in DEEP PURPLE, not a bad resume for a guitar player. I think he will continue to add to that legacy and evolve as a guitar player for years to come. As he did on the first volume, he adds his comments to each track and explains all of his influences in the CD booklet.

If you can think of any one style of music, MORSE covers it on this instrumental treasure trove. When an album is this good, and I mean every single song, I find it very difficult to choose a favorite; I am in a sense speechless at this man's amazing talent. I think most music lovers and guitar players would say the same thing about Steve MORSE, he is a guitar God and one with few equals. I do not know what else I could possibly add to this, except one thing.if you can really appreciate great guitar playing, all kinds of musical styles, and only instrumentals, you will absolutely love this album. Make sure you get volume one as well, it's just as good.
