4 stars This is a creative, spirited, original body of instrumental music.

People who enjoy technicality and musicianship will like this.

Though it's mainly technical, there is a lot of melody. It's just not slow and simple. :)

The guitarist, Rob Jarzombek, is obviously the mastermind behind this album. His playing is creative, rambunctious, and impeccable. His solos are beautiful.

Pete Perez, the bassist, is damn good. He can keep up with Rob's fast playing, his solos are nice and melodic, and he has a nice bass tone - it doesn't get all noodley and high-pitched.

The drumming on this album is top-notch thanks to Bobby Jarzombek. He has some major chops, intricate phrasing, and flawless timing. I highly doubt there is nothing he is unable to do percussion-wise. His playing on this album is very technical, and usually aligned with the guitar or bass.

I have qualms about two things: one - the guitar is too high and there isn't enough bass, and two, some of the tracks focus a little too much on technicality, sacrificing groove.
