Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
2 stars At least the production of this disk is nice. It's crisp and clean and you can hear every note. So what?

Akkerman's playing here is quite nice, if uninspired. His problem here is the material. Thesongs are bland and unoriginal, not the least bit progressive. We know Jan Akkerman can do better than that. Most of the selections have the guitar played over sequenced tracks, almost always a bad idea.

The album is on I.R.S.' No Speak label, which, in the late 80's and early 90's, specialized in taking good musicians and convincing them to release collections of bland instrumentals such as this. There's even a track called Quiet Storm, which at the time was the industry's code words for elevator muzak wrapped up in a jazz-rock package.

Really, the only truly worthwhile track is Akkerman's Sombrero, a Spanish-tinged tune that brings to mind Al DiMeola.

2 stars For long-time Focus and Jan Akkerman fans of the 1980s this album will most likely be a letdown. The rich experimental depth is lost and even most of the licks, though tasty, leave the seasoned fan feeling shorted. Also, the recording quality is more reminiscent of a cheap studio mix then a ...
