4 stars Finally!The so long and awaited new electric fusion album that all AL DI MEOLA fans were in wait for years and years!This CONSEQUENCE OF CHAOS proves thet the maestro didn't lost his abbilities and skills,but especially the passion to get back to his fusion roots and to make the magic again!Surrounded by some top class musicians,just take a look to the impressive list of the big names involved in the making of this album,it was practically impossible to have a bad release!Honestly,the expectations were very big,but fortunatelly,we are not at all dissapointed with the final result!Of course,the passion for classical guitar and flamenco and latino rhythms of Mr di Meola are still present,but essentially it's a modern fusion album,very diverse and catchy,focused on melody and composition,but with some very spectacular and efficient interventions from the musical aces that are on the album!Each track is so damn well executed and composed,we have the feeling that many versions for each song were made till the best one was choosed ,and Di Meola was very careful to the tiniest detail,to compose some compact and elaborated songs,with intelligent arrangements and a great percussion section!Rich instrumentation and superbe sounds for an album that has all ingredients of an accomplished and complete album!I really missed the electric sound of AL DI MEOLA and on this album we find the maestro on top of his form!Inspired and efficient,this album is a major success and we really wonder why he became more end more distant to the fusion progressive musical area in time?!?!Congratulations from the heart and we wait more in the future! 4,5 STARS,because I cannot forget the 3 first masterpieces from the RETURN TO FOREVER era!!!
