4 stars 4.5 stars.

A collaborative effort between the two guitarists mentioned on the cover, Angyan and Daczi. And what a great effort! The end result is a hard-hitting kind of fusion vaguely reminiscent of groups like Mindflowers, MCM, and to a lesser extent Liquid Tension Experiment.

What sets this release apart however is the eclectic mix of styles and instruments. Every track has their unique sound, but at the same time they all manage to sound completely different. The musicianship is top notch, especially the violin (also played by Angyan), which is an essential part of the sound.

All of the tracks are relatively short yet manage to create a great fusion vibe on each of them. Many of the tracks are perfect, though a remote few are lacking. Those tracks are 'Smile' and 'Something for You'. I think the difference there is that the band doesn't really play with the same energy. They slow everything down for those songs. They're still nice to listen to, but both aren't really up to par with the rest of the album.

Recommended to anyone really, especially fans of fusion. Fans of the band Mindflowers will surely find something to like here.

Speesh | 4/5 |
