3 stars An instrumental release combining a good mix of ambient, rock, and jazzy moments into what must ultimately be classified as a somewhat mediocre album. The musicianship is passable and at times genuinely interesting, but the mood of "Gordian Knot" is very somber and won't leave much of an impression on the listener. The exciting riffs are lifted directly from Crimson, and the gutless delivery of the heavy moments are to weak to place this into the realm of real metal. Although there isn't anything new here, the classy production and atmosphere might still be worth the purchase for those seeking some fun metalish background music, but don't expect to be taken to school by the player's virtuosity.
