4 stars French guitarist of Jean Michel JARRE is back with the follow up to his magnificent "Amphibia" album from 1996. This one has equally complex compositions as its processor. He has got a well-known drummer in Tommy Aldridge, known for his work with Ozzy Osbourne and WHITESNAKE among others. On this one he also got two guest jazz musicians, Didier Lockwood and the late Michel Petrucciani.

The music is instrumental progressive hard rock / heavy metal. Patrick is a very skilful guitarist with a great technique, and his inspirations are Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie Montrose, Eddie Van Halen, and Al Di Meola among others. His guitar playing is also reminiscent to Tony McAlpine, Gary Moore, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. The highlights are "On The Edge", "Burn Out (acoustic version)", "Why Do You Do Things Like That?" and "Cloudy Mountain".

This is an incredible album from a talented guitar virtuoso, and probably one of the best guitar albums to come out this year.
