4 stars Well this creature by Steve MORSE was at his peek of career at the moment of this issue. He has been able to combine such a Baroque fugue-structure within a classical harmonization,enriched with some diverse "Celtic scales", naturally inside a burning context of classic rock. This is the main difference between his style and for instance that one of the guitar master John Mc Laughlin in the "MAHAHVISNU ORCHESTRA", another excellent composer of fusion music!! A blend of progressive rock, fusion, classic rock and country rock , managed by such a remarkable mastermind like Steve MORSE, former guitarist of KANSAS pomp rock band, a clever musician from every point of view!! Besides you can appreciate such Allen Sloan's violin work, which is especially remarkable and suitable to let the country American rock genre be fitted into the best progressive music, a sort of stunning adaptation!! For the above reasons at last this is simply instrumental classic rock music with complex arrangements, great melodies and skillful solos. That's enough I think...
