5 stars It's funny because Time Control by Hiromi is part of the best, or most important, album in my life but, although Voce is not in there, it's my favorite album of her. Any album that start with a song like Voice deserve to be listen at least once in the life of a prog/jazz fan because, it's so that, meaning, good prog/jazz music, all in one song. Definitely one of the best piece of music Hiromi wrote.

Then comes Flashback, with this king of Emerson riff that is so well executed that it can't be anything but infectious.

The third track on the album, the funky Now or Never, is the first inclution of synth, Nord Lead 2, and although it's only use in the motif that is heard trought the song, it's not out of place, it hadds to the funkyness of the song.

Temptation is one of the most beautiful ballad Hiromi has wrote, a well deserved break from the crazyness of the first 3 songs. The piano solo in that song is nothing sort but of amazing, full of feeling and really shows how emotional Hiromi can be.

Labyrinth had been previously heard on the Stanley Clark Band album. This version, is not so different for the previous version, but more close to the sound of the overall album.

Desire is another funky track with good use of the synth on the rhythm. I like the way she plays funky grooves with some prog riff trown in and mix it with jazz, another good recipes for good music.

Haze is her required solo piece of the album, she always play a solo piece on her album, but usually at the end. Haze is another amazingly emotional ballad. A very beautiful piece.

Delusion is my favorite track on the album, a perfect piece of music, I love you Hiromi :) and to think that she's only in her 30's wow! So much incredible piece of musc and album are awaiting us fans, in the future.

Beethoven's Piano sonata is a strong way to finish the album after the powerful Delusion. I always liked the Pathetique Sonata by Beethoven, so to hear it played Jazz by Hiromi and her trio, is very cool.

In the end, a must have for Jazz, Jazz Rock/Fusion, prog fan. Nothing under 5, definetly a musical masterpiece of the 21st century.
