Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This album is a hymn to fretless guitars and great techniques. Scott McGill is one of really interesting modern jazz-rock guitarists, and on this album, with support of rhythm duo, he demonstrates his musicianship level and fretless guitars possibilities.

Music there is angular and very fast ( just think about very first Al Di Meola albums - and imagine him playing nervous guitar staccatos using fretless guitar). Rhythm section is strong ( DeCarlo will collaborate with McGill on some their later albums), but it is a guitarist album. Other instruments are required for his support only.

Sound on the album is cold and quite heavy (incl. guitar shredding in some moments). Some electronics devices are used as well, so as a result you hear soulless guitar's acrobatics in cold and nervous minimalistic rhythm space. Often the composition sound more as techniques demonstration than like music itself. But the techniques are demonstrated by real master.

In whole - more album for fretless guitar acrobatics maniacs. Not enough musical component to make it attractive for wide listener I think.
