The sheer virtuosity and compositional talents of Masi make for an album that should please fans of the genre a lot, but those who are put off a bit by this type of music will find it less interesting than its predecessor. Masi's sense of putting the song structure in a place of importance rather than just creating pieces of music that only serve as venues for soloing does elevate this above a lot of that genre, though.

Alex Masi Format: Audio Cassette. Alex Masi moves on from his previous 'Attack of the Neon Shark' effort and gets more musical, more experimental and full bodied, but also less focussed on this release. The playing is adequate - no doubting the guys ability - but there is little on this disc that makes you want to explore further. Weird cover art too, not sure what he's trying to say but given that this is a totally instrumental release, he's probably not actually trying to say anything.
