5 stars 12 years after the last TRIBAL TECH studio album-the phenomenal and innovative ROCKET SCIENCE-our dearest fusion masters are back in business with this amazing new album called X!Well-12 years is an amazingly long period of silence-and this too long musical hiatus for TRIBAL TECH-has come to an end ,the new masterpiece called X-will plenty satisfy even the most pretentious Scott Henderson fan-or TRIBAL TECH fan-or-generally speaking-any modern fusion fan!Definitely-the alchemy between the musicians is still present-technically speaking-all 4 guys are fantastic-and the compositions are the expression of what instrumental fusion should be in 2012!I've always admired the fact that TRIBAL TECH were all time an avant gardistic band in a way ,trying all the time to discover and explore new musical territories-and this album is the prove that the guys in the band still have something to tell in this eltistic musical style!Most of the songs are midtempo orientated-and the element oif surprise is present on each track too!The sound,the production is perfect-crystal clear sound-and each instrument sounds sensational!Henderson is pushing some unbelievebly complicated solos-and he's a monster technician,maybee the most technically advanced from all fusion guitar players-ALLAN HOLDSWORTH included here!HENDERSON is a fantastic vibrato master-and the way how he is making the guitar sound-is breathtaking!Absolutely fantastic!GARY WILLIS is equal to himself-great technician,fantastic sound aswell-pure perfection!KIRK COVINGTON is literally killing the drums,he is offering some mathematic and complicated rhythms-totally awesome!Finally-the 4-th wheel of the perfect machine-MR SCOTT KINSEY-WOW!Great keys solos and wonderful interventions-magnificent!In my humble opinion-TRIBAL TECH is the best fusion group ever!All 4 musicians are aces and the fruit of the musical alchemy that exists among them is fabulous!In the end-our endless respect for another stellar album and the hope that we won't have to wait another 12 years to have a new TRIBAL TECH album,isn't it?5 STARS for a perfect album,without any weak track!
