Review by Gatot
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars A good friend of mine gave me the cassette of this album by veteran Megadeth's guitarist marty Friedman and I just put the cassette on a shelf and never got interested to play as I thought it's gonna be full with guitar shredder. Well, actually nothing wrong with it and I sometimes enjoy that kind of guitar playing. After years never touched the cassette, another friend of mine posted a good review about Marty's "Scene" album where the music is basically not that guitar shredder, then ... I remember this cassette. So, I played it and surprisingly I was impressed at first listen as it's very far away from guitar shredder kind of music. I was really surprised. So I keep playing it as the music is quite peaceful.

The overall album flows the music in almost similar way, with new age influenced kind of music. I am impressed with the opening track Arrival (4:52) with its ambient style and good guitar playing. It applies the same with tracks that follow: Bittersweet (5:27), Be (4:51) and the rest. In Luna (5:17) he inserts the female Japanese voice that makes the track sounds different. I also like the melody of Mama (3:55). The concluding track Siberia (4:19) is rich in nature and I do enjoy the track right from the start to end with all of its subtleties.

Overall, it's a highly recommended album and it's an eye opener for me personally as I have never imagined Marty's music is something like this. It's so peaceful listening to this album. Keep on proggin' ...!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

5 stars The prettiest instrumental metal album that isn't one at all... Marty Friedman isn't afraid to show his softer side, that is for sure. As this album eschews any form of his thick metal past in favor of a new age influenced and thoughtful release that takes composition and sheer prettiness over ... (read more)
