Well, this album does NOT compare to any of Testament's music whatsoever! BUT, Alex Skolnick is quite the Jazz Guitarist, and he puts his jazz flair on such influential metal songs like:

1) No One Like You: Scorpions 2) Goodbye To Romance: Ozzy 3) Still Loving You: Scorpions 4) Dream On: Aerosmith 5) War Pigs

To name a few....and even 2 of his own jazz songs.

My favorite aspect of this album is that...Quite simply...IT WORKS! Yes, Alex proves that these songs CAN be played in such a way!

I LOVE this album! Absolutely LOVE IT!

Great guitar playing on it? YES! Not to mention Alex found some killer jazz musicians to back him up, as well!

Are you a metalhead, but want something different, yet the same? GO GET THIS CD!
