3 stars High tension wires is Steve Morse third album under his name and a very fine work aswell. Issued in 1989 this album shows the gentle and melacholic side of Morse with elegant passages and very fine musicianship overall. Helped by all Dixie Dregs members here, but don't expect to be another DD album, no this is quite diffrent, the album is diverse in songwritting and shows how versatile Steve Morse is as a musician. This is mid temo most of the time with mellow passages, but the beautiful pieces like Ghostwind or the version of Leprechaun Promenade easely bits the DD original, in my view. This album is not constructed on riffs and solos like the albums befor this one or after High tension, is very delicate with sense of melodic line of the highest calibre. I don't know if this ishis best solo album, I like Stessfest very much , equaly with this one, and is better then Stand up for sure. A very worthy album where Steve Morse shows that he is on the tip of the iceberg. 3.5 stars.
