CD Reviews

Andre' S Grindle | Bangor,ME. | 09/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If one goes into this album thinking they'll be getting
anything like the Jan Hammer Group's jazz-funk materail such
as 'Oh Yeah?" and 'Melodies" YOU ARE IN THE WRONG PLACE!This
album is a duet with Jan Hammer and Journey guitarist
Neal Schon and HE steals the show,not Hammer!Schon's biting
guitar riffs permeate every song,even Steve Perry shows up to
sing!Only Hammer lilting but so short "Peace Of Mind" reminds you he's here.But his guitar like synthesizer licks do add color
to these songs but the sound is 100% hard arena rock without one hint of the fusion sound of Jan Hammer.This marks the point
when Hammer went totally rock n' roll,so after a listen or two
this is excellent rock music but terrible fusion!But how can a
music be something it isn't anyway-that's what art is all about
anyway:the process,not the product."
