"I totally disagree with the aforementioned comments...
This is a great CD!
To me Hiram took a chance and delve into some nice ideas.
The lyrical content of the cd is beautiful and the musicians
who partake of the project are awesome as well!
Having the lovely Lalah Hathaway on guest back-vocals makes it all the more interesting!....
Its not enough to just be a great musician without trying new things and taking risks...after all, isn't that what making great music is about?...
Treat yourself, if you're in a mood for something smooth but funky and exciting!...this cd has a nice edge"
One of his worst! They need to reprint "Way Cool!"

"Hirum needs to stop singing and concentrate on just playing his guitar which he is one of the best at. For Hirum at his best, try to find "Way Cool." Unfortunately it is out of print, but if you can find it, it is an exceptional CD!"
Not bad, but what happened to the old Hiram?

"A good Latin style release, but I miss the early Hiram, the Hiram that made scorching yet melodic guitar leads like no other and had a fusion bent that was jazzy and rocky. I am desperately searching for a copy of "From All Sides", but can't find it."
Hiram with a touch of Latin

"First of all, yes this album sounds different as opposed to what fans expected from Hiram but this album is wonderful. There is a reason artists do things different from time to time, it's called "Expanding one's horizon". This album as Hiram put it "My Spanish album" has a real Latin sound to it and is a very "chill" album. A handful of originals with a few covers i.e. "What you won't do for love", and "Can't hide love" but all in all a great album. Check it out."
