4 stars One of Steve's very best. This man has come a very long way since earlier records and the dregs. What I find most appealing in this album is Steve's concern with being the fastest guitar player. His licks have slowed for the better. Though he doesn't loose any steps and their are plenty of his signiture licks and speed, but this time he is more concerned with melody and compostion.

4 stars Hopefully, you guys aren't getting tired of reading so many of my Steve Morse Band reviews that are so similar to each other. But the fact is, this band is remarkably consistent. No matter which album you choose, you will be hearing a great mixture of fusion, rock, southern rock, and baroque classical. And that, of course is what you get here.

The album opens powerfully with Sacred Ground, a fine example of Morse's proggy song styling, shown since his Dregs Days. The best prog tune is Barbary Coast, which despite clocking in at under three and a half minutes, contains a lot of nice prog riffs.

Special mention should be made for Slice Of Time. Morse has always shown proficiency at classical based compositions, but he has outdone himeself with this one. This Bach inspired just amazes me every time I hear it.

The album closes with the whirlwind Structural Damage. This is a great finish for the disk, leaving the listener drooling for more of The Steve Morse Band.
