4 stars Often I can hear, that my beloved jazz-fusion has it's great history somewhere in 70-th, but missed his magic now. Even more - they say that there is nothing in modern music world, what looks as modern fusion form. And even like that - Derek Sherinian is one of the modern ( rock) fusion idols. No way!!!

Just take this debut album of Attention Deficit power - trio ( or even super group, if you like names like that). Three great musicians - Alex Skolnik, ex-Testament guitarist, bass god Michael Manring and Tim Alexander, ex-Primus drummer - established power trio for playing new world class fusion!

It's instrumental album consisting of 18 compositions. No keyboards!!! ( O God, thank you for that!At least there are some bands in rock without synth-mania!!!) "No Synthesizers!" - no, I'm not repeating, it is stated right on CD cover!

Alex Skolnik plays not only electric,but acoustic guitar as well. And you wouldn't find metal axe- hero episodes there ( O God, thank you once again!). Both together with jazzy drumming and deep bass line ( a la Stanley Clark, but much more modern), the trio produce highly intelligent, complex music with big dose of magnetism.

To be honest, it's one of the best examples of modern heavy fusion all around.

Highly recommended to anyone who likes complex,professional and innovative music.
