3 stars Well, this IS a Guitarrist album, so anyone who lislikes the genre AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

I personally don't like guitarrists albums, to much of exibiocionism and lack of instrumentals showing where a whole band can go, instead, it simpy sticks to a background riff, straight drums, and a repeating bassline. However, this one has gone a BIT beyond it, it DOES haves instrumental passages with a whole band shifting, and John uses a lot of odd time signatures and well made drum loops.

Despite of all his efforts, he still failed. Infinite soloing still keeps going, and people who eager for something more keep escaping.

I personally think it deserves a two, since its only for those who like the guitarrist album style, but this one is problably the best guitarrist album i've ever heard (right togheter with Satriani's Alien) so i gave it a three. Not too shabby
