4 stars Definitly a very nice surprise for me. Jean Michel JarreŽs former guitarrist (also playing with dutch heavy metal veterans Elegy) proves he is one of the few cases where a skillfull and technical guitarrist plays for the music. Most virtuoso guitarrists are content to use solo albums as a showcase fo their habilities rather them produce fine music. Rondat does the opposite and I loved the album for that. The guy can actually write fine pieces of instrumental rock, with a metal edge on most of them, but also with great melodies and arrangements.

He also chose very well his back up band: Phil Woindrich is a fantastic keyboards player (also does some interesting solos here and there), the rhythm section of Patrice Guers (bass) and Tommy Aldridge (yes, the same man behind Ozzy Osborne and Whitesnake) is very strong. Production is also top notch. If youŽre looking for some great guitar instrumental work try On The Edge, and maybe youŽll be as delightfully surprised as I was. Four stars.
