4 stars In one word: Flawless

With second album named Imposing elements released couple of month before in february 2012 - Dean Watson really done it big time. If the first album was great, this sophomore release is flawless in everyway. This is one of the best musicians in last years in jazz fusion world, what he done on these two albums released so far is absolutly essential to have, both fans of jazz fusion and progressive rock will have plenty of memorable passages here. I thing that must be pointed aut is that all the music from Imposing elements was created/produced/mastered by Dean Watson himself, this is not an easy task, but in the end he succeded 100%. Complex progressive jazz fusion with some spectacular moments like on opening track Past present who really sets the mood for entire album. Another highlight for me is Feet below with some brilliant chorus at the end of the piece, fantastic and the more progressive jazz metal tune Of Age with some progressive metal mood but combined very efficient with the jazz fusion elements, in the end a spectacular piece. No weak moments here only highlights, balanced album, DEan Watson really shine on every piece. I don't know if is better then his first who was already a great release, but for sure is in same league, that means in Premier League for sure. 4 stars easy and recommended one of the better albums in last years in this field. This type of jazz fusion is right down on my alley and for that I can only recommend to get it from cdbaby in digital format, no CD this time.
