5 stars For me this album contain some of the best music i have heard in a long time. Beeing a musician, i mostly play the keyboards but i was at first a guitarist, i spend 10 years lerning classical guitar, this album really touch everything i like about music. Incredible musicianship, lots of feeling musically and strong arrangements.

The album starts with the incredible guitar works of Mr. Malmsteen then, you have Al DiMeola joining to put the cherry on top of the cake, wow!! And the good thing about the album is that it doesn't stop after only one song, all of the album is incredible musicianship!!! One of the highlight of the album IMO is "Axis of Evil" in witch you have one of the best guitar duel of the century, Malmsteen vs Wylde, AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, BREATHTAKING !!!!!!!!!!

IMO, anybody who gave this album less than 4 stars maybe because: 1. they don't know nothing about music, 2. they don't understand or like the beauty of the electric guitar. Sorry is i offended anyone, but the musician and guitar fan in me had to say it.

5 Stars nothing less.
