3 stars Shawn Lane's debut is eclectic release of skilled musician. Big part of music there is instrumental rock with elements of (soft) shredding, neo-classic, pop-rock, americana, jazz-fusion.

I am not lover of melodic instrumental pop-rock, but Shawn is really good musician, so even such unattractive genre he could make acceptable to listen. Possibly, main reason is very often he plays easy accessible pop-oriented music on his own, jazzy manner. It doesn't helps to save all album, but it makes this release more attractive for sure.

Differently from many popular axe-heroes Shawn plays soft and well rounded guitar music. Almost all arrangements have some jazzy feeling. Only small part of compositions there has relations with progressive rock, but in whole this album is better than you can imagine.
