4 stars Al DiMeola's various band set ups and albums are always interesting, some are truly brilliant, this album in particular has some inspiring ideas. The first track has a section where the band speeds up the tempo as one. i don't think i've heard one as flawless as this album, perfectly in time with each other playing complex time signatures and unusual patterned riffs. Alot of the music may seem cheesy at time but I have found alot of enjoyment from it.

Some of the riffs remind me of Ray Shulman's riffs from Gentle Giant, very interesting indeed. Although I would consider this music more virtuoistic than Gentle Giant the ensemble has a very similar satisfying sound which I come by very occaisionally.

The music of A;l DiMeola is worth a listen off any lover of music who like intreaguing intrumental ideas, there's always alot to go at and the albums don't temd to be fully understood until you have listened to them a few times.

I thought I'd review this as it hasn't been before, but I'd recommend starting wit Land Of The Midnight Sun or Electric Rendezvous

Very inspirational music for instrumentalists
