4 stars Dean Watson's former band was Where's the Nine and along with percussion companion Barry Connors he did an impeccable performance with their only album Desensitized into Insanity. It was fusion of the highest caliber as far as I'm concerned but still circumstances forced Dean to call it a day and he went for this solo release which is in it's entirety to be heard on his myspace page.

It's obvious Dean is a man with both musical and compositional talent. Again he made a terrific album with also here all instrumental tracks in fusion style. With Where's the Nine he managed to play some extremely complex fusion but even though this is roughly the same style, this album is somewhat more accessible. The melodies are easier to comprehend and it's up to the listener which of the two is more suitable.

I myself am torn right in between WtN and Dean solo. Both albums are great and a fair asset to any fusion collection. The ultimate rating will be no surprise. "Desensitized " was a B+ already and this solo achievement is around the B-mark as well. Well done once again Dean ! 4 stars easily.
