I was 22 years old when I bought this CD.At that time I didn't know Steve Morse at all. When I put it on my player, I was blown out: the intro of "ghostwind" was simply great and its development was even more astonishing. I remember that I thought that the first track was the best one and that the other ones were surely not on the same level as the first (I was used to listen to guitar players that sold their album thanks to only one or two tracks). Well, I was wrong: here every track seemed to be better than the previous one and eventually when I finished to listen to the last one I realized: this guitar player is incredible not just for his superb technique but above all for his genious mind! Why he is not famous in Italy? (Before Deep Purple it was very difficult to find his albums.)
His work is a mixture of various influences all blended together, it is hard to classify it. You will love this album either you like rock, or heavy, or pop, or jazz, or new age, or classics, or country...
Steve has collaborated with many great artists and bands of different generes during his career (Barrueco, Petrucci, McLaughlin, Dixie Dregs, Kansas, Deep Purple...): this means that he is obviously very well appreciated and shows his great passion for all different kind of music.
I'm not exagerating if I say that it's a must have for everyone!
