4 stars This is my favorite Holdsworth disc. The emotional rollercoaster, laughing as the car speed through the City Nights to Endomorph's eulogy for his father. Allan plays with his heart on his sleeve here. Claire Holdsworth makes a vocal appearance as a over zealous french maid before Allan proves his worthiness in the Parthenon of guitar heroes in the rousing Peril Premontion. Alan Pasqua and Steve Hunt on keyboards, provide the foil to Allan's blistering lines with some beautifully accented melodies. Vinnie Colauita marks his debute in Allan's amazing stable of drummers extrordinaire. IMHO this is Allan's peak as a composer, simply beautiful.
