"The first time that I heard Ronnie Montrose was on Gamma 3. In fact at the time I didn't even know about the band MONTROSE. Gamma 3 was a nice mix of hard rock and that synthesized sound that was about to emerge in the 80's. On of the songs I always loved on Gamma 3 was CONDITION YELLOW, an instrumental. The song CATSCAN featured here on Territory has that same kind of sound. The rest of the album is a mixture of experiments by Ronnie trying different things. Some songs are very odd (I SPY) and some of the songs are very beautiful (synesthesia-women of Ireland). Not one of Ronnies best but there are enough good tracks to make it worth a listen. If you like songs like CATSCAN and CONDITION YELLOW then you should love Ronnies album SPEED OF SOUND and the work he did with ANTI-M on POSITIVELY NEGATIVE. If you are looking for Rock Candy and Bad Motor Scooter then this album isn't for you. I like it, I own it, I listen to it and this REMASTERED VERSION is pretty good."
FYI - This is not a rock album

"I'm just throwing this out here in case there are other customers who are considering buying Ronnie Montrose's 1986 album Territory based on his previous work in Gamma and Montrose. Territory is not a rock album...at all. It's a very experimental, largely instrumental, almost new-agey album that's about as far removed from the guitar rock of Montrose and the melodic rock of Gamma as you can possibly get. Not that it's a bad album by any means; it just isn't what I was expecting at all.
The closest point of comparison I can offer (sorry, I don't listen to much new-age music) is Steve Howe's Voyagers collaboration with Paul Sutin. It's tranquil, interesting music, but it definitely doesn't rock."

"Da ragazzino seguo i Montrose, il loro rock, gli amici del gruppo Gamma ed in particolare Ronnie Montrose. Avevo l'LP ed adesso possiedo il CD di Territory, un album davvero notevole, molto carico .. da avere assolutamente assieme a Mutatis Mutandis ed Open Fire ..
A presto Ronnie .. fatti sentire in musica"
