4 stars The second solo album of the brilliant Italian guitar player GIANLUCA FERRO is a little revelation for all instrumental albums lovers!This man has already released several albums with TIME MACHINE,HEART OF SUN and 24 STRINGS and has alreay a fantastic solo album in his pocket ,but this new one UNHEIMLICH is simply breathtaking!The fantastic production is another strong point for the album,because the sound is trully powerful!Crystal clear and very professional made-the album has plenty to offer to the most pretentious fans of this genre! What we have here is a massive dose of fusion metal in the vein of PLANET X-ANIMAL AS LEADERS-MESSUGAH-CHIMP SPANNER-CANVAS SOLARIS-PAUL WARDINGHAM-ON THE VIRG,among others!This Italian virtuoso has the science to deliver some fantastic technical skills that are really scarry!Having here an album of almost 70 minutes,that's quite long for an instrumental,but Gianluca Galli wanted to offer to his fans a very diverse and catchy album,passing from furious tones to more calm ones,from ultra technical measures to more laid back moments-a journey into the mind of a very talented musician,very modern and inspired!UNHEIMLICH has also a very nice and special cover,the artwork is superbe too!To sum up,this album has everything to catch the attention to all instrumental albums fans and will guarantee almost 70 minutes of guitar eargasm at 100 %!Definitelly ,there are here some serious influences from Steve Vai,John Petrucci,,Tony Macalpine or Yngwie Malmsteen-but Gianluca Ferro has his own techniquye for sure-a very spectacular and personal approach to guitar,his own sound-and that proves maturity and science to correct play on this wonderful instrument-the guitar!All our respect for an outstanding work and the final result is at the height of pour expectations for sure!4.75 STARS because perfection doesn't exist!
