4 stars After the sensational debut of SEAN MALONE'S GORDIAN KNOT,people was asking about the fact how soon a second album will come,better said how fast it will be released?!And this second one EMERGENT called came with major surprises and ,let's be fair,it's much better structured and inspired than the excelllent debut one!It's superior under all aspects to the brilliant new one,with a stellar line-up too,modified from the first one!Great manes,titans of their instruments are pushing here some sensational performances,anjoying themselves in playing some brilliant music composed by a heavenly gifted musician!The compositions are more worked and elaborated and everything-production included-is at a superior level! Undoubtedly SEAN MALONE is a very,very talented musician,a master of his instrument,and he is not only a monster in technique,but a versatile and inspired composer too!His compositions are not searching to impress the listeners from the technical point of view,not at all,but it's 100 % focused on the quality of the composition!MUTERSPRACHE is one of the most inspired compositions that Malone ever has wrote,a superbe composition with all the ingredients capture the attention of any prog fusion metal lover!It has power riffs,masterful druming rhythms and a great melodic line!FISHER'S GAMBIT is spectacular too,and very efficient,a trully inspired composition!All are very,very well done,and even the most pretentious conaisseur will get plenty of satisfaction after each audition!It's an album that will be more and more appreciated in years,a true inspired moment in today's instrumental prog metal fusion world!4,5 STARS and congratulations!
