4 stars Excellent work of modern fusion power trio. Great and not very usual for late 90-s technical guitar -led jazz rock of highest standard.

For me, this album is more Alan Holdsworth work, even if Johansson brothers participation is very important. I really can hardly remember so good balance of technical skills, melodies, improvisations recorded at the time this album was released . Even comparing with Allan Holdsworth's works,released under his own name, this album is really great work!

Alan Holdsworth's participation gave not only great guitar sound (and great name) there, but bring excellent improvs atmosphere to usually more rock-oriented Johansson's music. Rare very successful combination on the border of jazz fusion and instrumental rock.

Must have release for any Holdsworth fan, very good music for all jazz rock fans as well.
