Good Times Magazine,April 1999
This insrumental guitar masterpiece has it all. As you listen,a rich tapestry of sound unfolds...ranging from driving, fast moving pieces, to slower melodic numbers. There is a powerful hypnotic flow of energy right through tracks 1 to 16. Each track has the strength to stand alone,but together they form a truly inspirational whole.
