CD Reviews

Fingerlickingly Good
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD shows clearly what Michael Lee Firkins is made of, which is an exceptionally gifted guitar player with a fabulous fingertechnique. Furthermore, he also shows that he is able to play an amazing variety of styles of music. He knows how to write songs that will leave you breathless after first time listening and will keep on lingering in your brain forever. A must for anyone who likes guitar music. By the way, this CD is totally free of long winding, egotripping guitar solos."
The mother of all guitar albums

(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are so many stupidly superb guitarists out there who have cut shred-a-thons that the genre can easily become a bit of a caricature of itself, and doubtless many fans will come here looking for the same.

But this is the album that rises way above that genre. Sixteen years after its release it stills sounds fresh and vibrant because Firkins made a mini-epic of each track. Not only is each tune a rollercoaster ride, but the solo has also been painstakingly put together so that there is each and every time a firey climax guaranteed to give goosebumps.

Essential six-string listening...
Excellent collective piece of work....

"I first songs from this CD when I was at the Planetarium in L.A. "The Sargasso Sea" came over the sound system and I had to ask the guy what this was. I went out and bought it immediately and turned it on to all of my guitar worshiping friends. This is really good music for both musicians and non-musicians as well. His other albums are good, but this one will always be my favorite. You should buy this for any guitar players that you know, they would really wear it out......."
