This is among one of the greatest guitar recordings I have ever heard in my life! Ranks right up there with Steve Vai, and his father Frank Zappa. There are no keyboards or samples on this record. It's all guitars! Included tracks on this album include the title track Automatic, Fwakstention, You're a Mean One Mister Grinch, and the very last track on this record, a nine minute jam Purple Guitar. The other musicians are Terry Bozzio, Joe Travers, Morgan gren, Scott Thunes, Chris Maloney, Mark Meadows, Bryan Beller, Mike Keneally, Dick Cinnamon, Ahmet Zappa, Lisa Loeb, and Jason Freese.
