4 stars German composer and guitarist Adrian WEISS has been involved in various bands and projects since the '90s and is a seasoned performer and instrumentalist. In 2011 he decided to launch a solo career when he released the album "Big Time", a production that appears to have been met with a fair share of acclaim. "Easy Game" is Weiss' second solo album, self-released in 2014.

All in all, I find "Easy Game" to be an interesting album. Not a production with the same mass appeal as, for instance, Joe Satriani's earliest excursions, but a fine and good-quality affair that showcases a versatile instrumentalist, and one who is able to create songs that will have some appeal also outside of the typical instrumental metal guitar interested crowd. When that is said, I regard this album as one that first and foremost will intrigue that specific market, and then in particular those who tend to enjoy instrumental guitar albums featuring material of a more sophisticated manner in general and somewhat dominated by a progressive metal in particular.

4 stars German composer and guitarist Adrian WEISS has a solid background as a musician, with more than a decade as a recording and performing member of German progressive metal act Forces At Work. "Big Time" is his debut solo album, and was released in the fall of 2011.

Adrian Weiss has made an intriguing solo debut with "Big Time". He has a taste for diversity in pace, intensity and expression that suit an instrumental guitar-oriented album well, and is a clever composer who manages to construct good moods and distinct melodies, whilst also allowing his virtuous capabilities as an instrumentalist to shine through. That he provides ample room and space for this supporting cast of musicians is a nice bonus too, as far as such productions go. A well made effort that should interest both guitar aficionados and those with more of a passing interest in such creations both, as long as rock and metal oriented music of this kind is of interest.

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
