4 stars After listening to Holdsworth for as long as he's been recording, I finally got to see him live a few years back. I saw it, I heard it and after leaving, I still didn't beleive it. I've been playing guitar for 45 years and have listened to everyone. I can tell you that there isn't even a close second. His trio format is definately the best live situation because frankly, when he solos, chords would just get in the way. Many people would say he's just playing any old thing but I can tell you this is not so. To think of scales like that is impossible. To be able to play them is impossible. To be able to play them flawlessly night after night with your eyes closed is incredible. Listening to this album is like a rollercoaster ride. When I close my eyes I envision a pinball rolling up and down the strings, stopping at just the right times to create the ultimate tension. To me, "The Things You See" and "Gas Lamp Blues" are the best examples of his genious. Remember, in a live setting, you only have one shot! Boy, does Allan nail it!!! Johnny Esp (John Esposito)
