4 stars Another great album of one of the most important guitar players of today!Seconded by 2 excellent instrumentists-the drum machine Mike Terrana and the very efficient bass player Kevin Chown,Mr Macalpine delivered another excellent instrumental pearl!Nothing new under the sun-the same inspired compositions and diversity in music,combined with the alchemy formed between all 3 aces on their instruments-VIOLENT MACHINE is an album that marks the progression of MACALPINE under all aspects-especially composition-tchnical abilities and manner of approach for the instrument,because he started to be more open minded towards other musical styles!Shortl time after this album Tony started his collaboration with PLANET X and CAB which are 2 very different musical styles-atomic fusion and jazz rock,but both at the same stellar level!!So,very,very good instrumental music-guitar orientated,with some touch of fusion and funk sometimes,plus the classic CHOPIN etude-a wonderful offering for the great piano player-performed by this musical genius called TONY MACALPINE!Absolutelly enjoyable from the first to the last track-an important album in the career of this sensational musician! 4.5 stars for a very,very good album for one of the kings of shred and an essential guitar player!
