"This album is a solid effort from Brian Hughes. It has some wonderful performances on it, but I think that Brian was still trying to find himself at this point. The similarity to Pat Metheny is too close. I must say that I haven't heard anyone come that close to Metheny, but he's not Metheny. I think that he learned this later. The similarity to Metheny goes beyond Hughes' playing. The arrangements are also similar (no mean feat for those who know Metheny's work) and even the instrumentation is about the same, right down to the cymbal sound. As far as the "rap" song goes; I had the CD on one day while my neice was over (her being a teen rap-a-holic) and that tune came on and she just started laughing. It could never be considered rap. All the same I do think that the CD is worth checking out."
You have to hear this one!

"Brian Hughes is, in my opinion, one of the most gifted musicians on the planet today. The similarity in style to Pat Metheny is uncanny. From the first tune, 'Under One Sky' (title track), that similarity is unmistakable. Yet, Brian Hughes' music is different and the album offers a pleasant variety. A sprinkle of Jesse Cook and you have 'Nasca Lines' (track #2), with an unmistakable Iberian flavour. If you've never been a big fan of rap, 'Here Comes Trouble' (track #5) will grab you and pound it into you with such driving guitar that you'll be left with hair standing on end, salivating and asking for more. This is rap like you've never heard it before. Wow! Or try 'Thin Blue Line' (track #9) for us daydreamer types.The music is evocative and beautiful. The musicianship is second to none. A must have for anyone who appreciates good music."
