CD Reviews

Nadir of 2 great guitarists
F. Reed | 01/13/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"When I saw this album with these 2 great artists, I was excited and bought it quickly. After listening to it I am greatly disappointed. This album appears to be an attempt to have a success like Asia. The qualities that make these guitarists great are not apparent. If I had heard this without knowing who it was I would have never suspected. It is almost undiluted pop-rock-shlock from the 80s.

Only two songs are bearable, "Sketches in the Sun" and "Hackett to bits." Sketches is a lyrical acoustic-type song played on electric guitar. Hackett is a slightly altered version of Steve Hackett's "Please don't touch" on the album of the same name. That album and that version of the song are far superior.

This is much more akin to Asia, Journey, or Boston than to King Crimson, Yes, or Gentle Giant. If you're looking for an undiscovered progressive gem, look elsewhere. This isn't it."
No wonder AOR Radio died!
