Great - but took a while to really grow on me

"Ignore the 4 stars - I would now give this 5 stars after several listens.
This MSG effort is closest in style to the one that preceded it - namely Written in the Sand. At first I thought I was listening to a dud album, but it grew on me greatly the more I listened to it. What I like about Schenker is the complexity of his music. With every other guitar player I eventually get bored, but with Schenker's music I get more and more interested. He is the greatest rock guitarist in history in my view. Sometimes he can layer four or five complementary styles in a single track. He does not always give me what I want, but something else which I grow to realise is better than what I initially wanted. In a way, Schenker is somebody who actually corrects our expectations and tastes musically. I think Written in the Sand is slightly better, but comparisons with other albums are perhaps misplaced because of stylistic changes. If you are into Schenker, then I would definitely buy this album. If you are not into Schenker, then you need to give him a chance to cultivate your musical tastes in unexpected directions."
Good from the start

"This album is excellent. If you like Schenker, you'll love this one. The guitar lead on "pilot of your soul" is classic Schenker. How does this man come up with such an unusual approach after all these years. 5 stars folks, no bull."
