4 stars I was a fan of Steve Stevens' guitar work back in the eighties and I think it was around 2005 when I saw him listed in this band with Levin and Bozzio and i'm thinking "Is that the same guy ?". Yes it is and he's even more talented than I thought he was. What a trio though. These guys can rip it up with power or play these beautiful intricate melodies and everything in between. This album is their second release.

"Dangerous" has this heavy duty intro that is quite powerful. It settles after 2 minutes with what sounds like guitar synth. Kicks back in befiore 3 1/2 minutes before settling one more time to end it. "Endless" is laid back to start. Sounds like bowed bass to follow then the guitar takes over. Bass starts to lead as intricate guitar and drums also join in. It picks up before 7 minutes and some nice heavy guitar follows. "Crash" is a dynamite track as Levin and Bozzio provide the thunder and Stevens the lightning. Okay that was lame.

"Spiral" features acoutic guitar,bass and drums. Gorgeous stuff. Some Chapman Stick here too. "Melt" is a relaxing song with some underlying power. "Tragic" is such a great sounding track. Very powerful and so uplifting at the same time. It kicks in after 2 minutes as Bozzio puts on a show. The bass and drums lead after 4 minutes then the guitar joins in. It settles back after 6 minutes. "Tziganne" features some additional Flamenco guitar from guest Marcus Nand. This song is a tribute to Spanish fly. Okay I made that up but it is Spanish. "Lost" gets fuller a minute in then more powerful 3 1/2 minutes in. Ripping guitar follows. Incredible tune.

A solid 4 stars. I really enjoy this album.
