4 stars Mix together technical virtuosity, instrumental tracks with absolutely no fantasy theme, except song names and playfulness (they're playing, they even were able to bring this to tracks where's not singer, like big kids, but after all, we all are kids inside). In this style, it continues for about 35 minutes. Result, if you'll like it or not depends therefore on how you can handle these instrumentals. They reminds me Andy Timmons, more than anyone other. And they certainly were not added here because of this album, because to be guitar virtuoso is not one of the terms to get in here (Steve Vai is, Joe Satriani is not, Jeff Beck is, Eric Johnson is not, but they could be).

4(-) for skilled instrumentalists.
