4 stars Flesh on Flesh is possibly most popular Al Di Meola's album from last decade. In fact, his music is hardly very different from previous albums, but the main difference is Al goes electric.

It is not second "Elegant Gypsy", no way. The music is heavily influenced by Al's interest to world fusion of last decade. But using electric guitar sound, Gonzalo Rubalcaba on Fender Rhodes and part of his New Sinfonia collaborators, Al recorded a bit different album. Even if musical roots are the same, this album is more accessible for electric guitar sound lovers. It doesn't mean that there are not usual acoustic guitar pieces included, but having around half of all songs with electric guitar played gave the album much bigger difference in sound.

Music saved warmness of previous acoustic works and is full of Latin percussion and Mediterranean warm breeze. Not very different from World Sinfonia acoustic works, this album won listeners hearts with his electric /acoustic sound combination more than with musical material itself.

Strong Di Meola world fusion album, especially recommended for his electric guitar lovers.
