4 stars Think in Tony Levin and immediately it comes to your mind a complete background of bands including King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, John Lennon, David Bowie, Liquid Tension Experiment, and many many more. Think in Terry Bozzio, and it comes to your mind Frank Zappa, UK in the progressive vein, and many other bands in the rock scene. They got together to record an album, but they needed a guitar player someone who could fit their expectations and the experimental orientation they were looking for. Steve Stevens is remembered more for being the guitar player of Billy Idol all his career, and helping some other artists such as Michael Jackson. How could a man with no progressive orientation could fit in a band looking for that? Thank god they knew him very well, and knew Steve wouldn't fail. Black Syndrome is an excellent album full of different nuances that shape up an album full of contrasts, heavy riffs by Stevens, amazing drumming by Bozzio, wonderful bass lines by Levin. It contains a lot of elements, and some personal influences are perceived around. For example, Dark Corners, resembles much to King Crimson's Red. The Spanish guitar Stevens plays in a couple of songs fits perfectly with the more dramatic changes within the same songs. A very good album indeed!
