This is as good as any Di Meola LP I've heard, and I've heard most. Absolutely awesome-the contrasting softer tunes and harder edged stuff is perfect, not always the case on some of Al's stuff. If you like Al's stuff at all and don't get this, you are a fool!

Excellent Album - Adventure and Romance
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is one of Al's best albums. Very cohesive in terms of mood, an very adventurous in terms of the places that it goes.
One reviewer mentioned that it was "Soft", if by soft you mean not alot of electric guitar and power chords blaring then yes it is "soft".
If you need "hard" then get a Yngwie Malmsteen, Symphony X or other metal album. You definately will not find the items produced on this album there.
This ablum is about adventure and romance. It goes into some very interesting places. It has a mature feel to it - textures are luxurious and all the compositions are cohesive - par for the course with Al.
Most songs are composed by Al with one from Chick Corea and one from Barry Miles - who plays keyboard on the album.
The title song has a definate "attitude" and style which you will only find with Al.
If you like Al then this album is a must.
Great Axe-pectations Satisfied

"The people saying negative things about this album are either musically ignorant or unattentive listeners. Kiss My Axe is full of very sophisticated, melodic compositions with great playing, and the production is first rate. The album title is Al's response to various record company executives who refused to even listen to the record while Al was shopping it around for a label. To say DiMeola's playing is cold and technical is a cheap shot from people who don't really listen. This cd contains some of Al's finest compositions such as One Night Last June, Morocco, and The Embrace. Great music!"
