CD Fan Review
Allan Holdsworth's second album is where the fretboard wizard truly found his voice and really took off.
His dynamic compositions and quickfire electric guitar leads soar, taking his music to sonic heights where very few, if any, could reach.
The guitarist, bassist Jeff Berlin and drummer Chad Wackerman (Frank Zappa, Andy Summers) flex their musical muscles on an eclectic mix of instrumentals and vocal tracks featuring singers Paul Williams and Cream legend Jack Bruce.
Highlights include "Three Sheets to the Wind," "Tokyo Dream" (the original rock version; a later, jazzier version appears on Holdsworth's 1992 release Wardenclyffe Tower), and "Was There?" (with vocals by Bruce).
