3 stars Marco Sfogli is one of the most talented prog metal guitarists in last decade, mostly known for his contribution on James LaBrie first solo album Elements of prsiasion. Also he has colaborations with excellent keyboard player Alex Argento, Jordan Rudess or John Macaluso and apart from this he has a solo career. First album released under his name There's hop issued in 2008 is a fairly solid instrumental prog metal with many excellent ideas overall. Sfogli playes besides guitar , keyboards and bass on some pieces, the helping hand is coming again from members he well known and work, Alex Argento, Macaluso or the top notch keybord player Matt Guillory among others. The music is as I said instrumental, but is not a boring moment here, he manage to incorporates beside prog metal elements some fusion passages, the result is great, the pieces flows from one to another very well. Sfogli is a crafted musician, maybe in places has some Satriani feel, but overall the album is great. Lots of breaks, nice guitar chops, and solid rhythmic section. A musician to look in the future, because worth it. 3.5 stars for sure.
