Again, Satch surprises us with a magnificient album full of strange beautiful music yet totally different from his other albums.
Maybe it can be best compared to the "flying with the alien" album. No limits, full exploration of new sounds, cosmic, daring but stunningly beautiful.
It is a constant search of Satriani to explore new "nuances" in his instrumental rock music. He has made albums that are bluesy (Joe Satriani), rocking (The extremist), daring and inovating (Surfing with the alien). This album incorporates a lot of the beat music techniques and drums but incorporated in a instrumental rock sound. This implies that there might be a bit more "shredding" on the album, but the melody is still the main refrence and Satch never gets lost in endless "fret wailing" or usless long solos.
Once again this omnipotent artist has enriched the gallery of great albums with a marvellous guitar album of which we can all enjoy.
