4 stars In my opinion stars and then i want to explain what i'm writing:

1-Signal Path: every TT first songs are truly inspired and they want to comunicate album nature.This song is an energizer and Scott Henderson is the most talented guitarist in the world not only in fusion area.10\10

2-Big Girl Blues: noy exactly what i would be expected in a TT album but in of course in a Scott Henderson album like Dog Party or others.I don't like blues very much and in the whole album it's the weakest song,for me.6\10

3-Dense Dance: funny fusion with great groove and well done but not at its peak,however keyboards are great to create a jazzy-trumpet atmosphear.7\10

4-Got Tuh B: well well well!!!nothing to say to this song a masterpiece of fusion, really good stuff with a great Gary Willis on bass.10\10

5-Peru: classic TT soft-song well done. It can be found, in a perfect climax, all melancholic feelings mixed up with classical fusion changes of rhythm and extraordinary concentration of pathos in Scott Henderson guitar.8\10

6-Elvis At The Hop: this song is a vivid example of Funk Jazz in style of Chick Corea's Elektric Band (Beneath the Mask with Frank Gambale).Good, Very Good! 9\10

7- The Necessary Blonde: a jazzy input to Allan Holdsworth None Too Soon (with Gary Willis).In fact this song is a combination of a jazz structures. Not fusion at all and at its best but it misses the saxophone that is replaced by guitar.8\10

8-Wasteland: I love Gary Willis and his playing. It creates a groovy atmosphear with bass. Another great stuff! 9\10

9-Formula One: it's not my best song but acceptable. A great example of Scott Henderson talent. Nice idea to recreate formula one situation with Guitar, bass and keyboards solo.7\10

10-Sub Aqua: classical TT song in Dr Hee period, fusion at the end of '80s. 6.5\10

11-Fight The Giant: Good stuff really exciting funky song . Guitar seems a saxophone and keyboards a trumpet. 8\10

10+6+7+10+8+9+8+9+7+7+8=81.5:11=7.509=7.5 to do perfect counts

7.5:10=x:5 - 3.75 for me 4 stars
