It is a different from his earlier stuff but it is still spectacular. It is a little more metal than the rest. Throughout the album it is "constant, accurate, and intense" and keeps the listener on edge. It has heavy saddening songs to the comical "Yai, Yai." It is a great album if you want some variety in your listening but can seem a little inconsistent. And of course, the guitar playing is incredible. It is hard to compare him to anyone else with the style of music he plays on this album. BUY THIS ALBUM.
