"Murphy is god! I have several albums featuring Murphy on guitar. He has been in Death(Spiritual Healing, Testament(Low,Live at the Filmore,The Gathering), Disincarnate(Dreams of the Carrion Kind), Konkhra(Weed Out the Week), and more. His fluid and exquisite playing has reached is zenith on the 2 solo albums he has put out (this one and Feeding the Machine-1999). I bought Convergence a year and a half ago, and it hasn't come out of my disc changer yet. Simply remarkable...Best songs-Vision and Shadow's Fall."
James is a complete musician!

"Honestly, I have never heard any of Jame's stuff with any of the thrash bands that he was in. I initially heard James on the Rush Tribute album, Working Man. He did some great solos on that one, so I decided to check him out. This album is about half vocal, half instrumental. His intrumentals are awesome. The rhythms are heavy, and the solo work is clean and impressive.
Visions is my favorite instrumental. The vocal songs are awesome. James brings in some very good singers, which compliment his writing style. Touching the Earth and Deeper Within are great tunes. This album shows that James can do his own thing, and do it well. Highly Recommended!!!"
Top-notch solo work, bar none

"James Murphy, from Death to Obituary to Testament, even the obscure but magnificent Explorers' Club... a flawless guitarist! About a nine on the shred scale, with a completely excellent blend of acoustic and electric guitars on songs like "Touching the Earth," dedicated in memory of Murphy's grandfather and featuring Chuck Billy on vocals, and Tempus Omnia Revelat to close the album... unbelievable technique and emotion. Don't wait, just scoop this one up!"
