4 stars Excellent and underrated album from one of the greatest axemen of all time, 'Wardenclyffe Tower' continues Allan Holdsworth's never-ending quest for undefinable music without being too experimental and features superb, muti-rhythmic patterns and layers of atmosphere. '5 to 10', 'Sphere of Innocence' and 'Dodgy Boat' all cook but the winner is 'Questions', an angular and melodic feast for the ears with typically amazing licks from the maestro. The record is balanced by the mellow soundscapes Holdsworth likes to paint and features Jimmy Johnson on bass with both Wackerman and Husband handling drums alternately. Perhaps not a crowd pleaser like 'Metal Fatigue' or 'Secrets' but a delight for fans.
