5 stars This album is even more eclectic than the previous Dixie Dregs efforts. In fact, it features vocals on two tracks. Steve Morse followed the same pattern as other fusion bands : Bruford : Jeff Berlin sings on a few tracks on 'Gradually going tornado' ; Brand X : Phil Collins began to sing on 'Product'. We know that this was intended to turn the music towards a more commercial direction. Nevertheless, the music is still lush, with beautiful violin parts played by a virtuoso newly recruited after the departure of Allen Sloan : Mark O'Connor (who recently released a fabulous record with the London Philharmonic Orchestra : 'Fanfare fot the volunteer'), the participation of another guitar vituoso : Steve Howe and long-time bandmates : drummer Rod Morgenstein and bassist Andy West, plus a keyboard genius : T Lavitz. Altogether, these artists created a delightful record, with still a strong fusion feeling but with a wider range of styles thanks to the contribution of Alex Ligertwood and Patrick Simmons to vocals.
