"I think the reason why we don't hear Michael Angelo in the same breath as Steve Vai or Paul Gilbert is because he stuck to his guns and never did anything as overtly commercial as those two. Paul Gilbert joined M.r Big and did essentially pop rock with the shred toned down, and of course Vai is well known for being involved in projects from Zappa to David Lee Roth. I'm not criticizing those guys but the fact of the matter is, Michael Angelo is just as good as those guys, especially showing his strengths on his solo debut, No Boundraies. The album features everything from shred, prog fusion, to all out thrash metal, to soft neo classical passagess. I would say its up there with Jason Becker's Perpetual Burn because of its ability to be catchy and complex at the same time. The man stuck to his guns, recorded great solo albums while others went for more commercial pastures. Its a shame alot of people haven't heard of Angelo but I think people are starting to, and will continue to. What I hope for is a collaboration (which is actually rumored to take place one day) between another great shredder, Michael Romeo. Just imagine an album with both these geniuses together. That's going to be something definitely worth owning when it comes out!"

"I picked up this CD not long ago and I'm glad I did. MAB, as a player and composer, is absolutley great. I would go over the track list, but I think someone else has already done it.
Also, all these people on here saying "he has no emotion", and other things like that... have you guys ever stopped and realized, everyone has different emotions? It stands the same for guitar. Playing fast may be his way of showing emotion, just like some people show emotion by crying, and others don't. You get the picture.
Overall though, good CD. I would suggest picking it up!"
