2 stars Ah well i have to say this is a very poor atempt indeed to write music. Here you got a 44 minute total instrumental album feauturing guitar greats as Lukather, Wylde ,Di meola and Malmsteen and although there are several other talents on this album the guitars is what it is really focusing about... Basically there is not really much of the songs that are intended as melody, infact the whole album seems to be about showing how fast each of these guitarists can play as the guitar duells are plenty. Infact i am amazed that this is Sherinians project as he seems to get no space at all and although the previos albums have been in the jazz/fusion genre this is far from it...It is basically reduced to basic prog-metal with some slower songs inbetween but frankly there is not much interest for non-musicians here. If you like original guitar oriented albums i would rather suggest something with Joe satriani or Steve vai
