Well my run of interesting instrumental albums to review just ended with a bang. This sucker is boring as hell and does not get going with further listens. This is definetely for the guitarists who like widdling to study. For the rest of us no guitarists its endless guitar wanking ad nauseum. It my best neo-classical prog-metal sounding but it just falls flat without vocals Yes he is good but this CD is not. Avoid like the plague...ugh.
