2 stars This second album from star power trio is a mixed bag. Opener "Dangerous" is such a weak below any critics heavy rock composition, that if you will survive it till the end, all rest album will be a real pleasure for you.

Possibly there is no reason to discuss, is it fusion or not. At least it is instrumental rock with jazz fusion, heavy rock and some progressive sound elements for sure. And the problem is not heaviness itself, but that heaviness is almost main ingredient. Plenty of metallic guitar ( ok, there are some slow guitar pieces and even flamenco as well), energetic drumming in hard rock tradition, some stereotype heavy rock sounds. All these components destroy some positive elements, presented on this recordings.

Interesting, that during listening it looks every next moment or next song will be something not such straightforward heavy rock, but it never happens. The main alternative to that bombing on your head is numerous pop-rock instrumental pieces. It's pity, that last important musicians in all sound is Tony Levin, generally just supporting guitar/drums attacks or mellow , but very stereotype slower pieces with rhythmic vibration.

Happily musicians all are competent, so common sound as minimum is professional. I can hardly imagine jazz fusion lover enjoying with this album, but instrumental heavy pop-rock lovers for sure will find many pleasant moments there.

Around 2,5.
