4 stars FEROCIOUS PLAYING!That is what it comes first in my mind when I speak about the unbelieveble manner in which MASI is playing guitar on this album!For me,this album is a logical following to the spectacular MCM album,where the killer duo MASI-MACALUSO is helped by the monster bass player RANDY COVEN!On this album,ALEX MASI is pushing a little more his fantastic guitaristic capacities to deliver one of the most spectacular and catchy albums ever released,playing also some excellent keyboard parts,but especially the bass guitar too-in a sensational way!!!!On this album he plays numerous guitaristic styles with big class,proving that he can surprise his fans in a very pleasant way!!From pure metal to aggressive fusion,to classical and latino rhythms,passing throuch some excellent progressive tones too-every musical style is performed with true class and fantastic passion!MACALUSO is simply stunning,and he also is simply unleashed here,having plenty of space to display his unbelieveble talent and monstruous technical skills!All the album is interesting,from the first accords to the last one,the album is a musical journey,where we are invited by mastermind MASI,and this proves thet he is permenently capable to evolve and to change something in the right direction,and inspired direction!Of course,he is a fabulous shredder with an atomic speed on execution and performance,but sometimes he is the master of musical disguise too! Mostly fusion and prog power metal orientated,this album is a true musical pearl,very ,very well done end excellent produced!4.5 STARS and strongly recommended for the ameteurs of guitar extravaganzas especially,but for amateurs of good music in general-type instrumental music guitar orientated and virtuoso druming!
