Rating: 3.5/5

11 Guitar oriented tracks in the Satch/Vai style. There is some excellent playing here from < ?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />London. Ontario’s Scott Szeryk. Scott handles all the vocals and instruments himself with the exception of the drumming which is done by Dale Penney (NAIL/ ex-KAOS).

This is a disc that is aimed at the musician more so than the avid Rock fan. It contains allot of guitar shredding, solo’s and intricate melodies. Lyrics and vocals appear to take a backseat at times as to let the guitar speak for him. A couple of numbers are more ‘Radio Friendly’ while the rest are a guitarist dream.


Great musicianship and songwriting from a musician’s point of view but the average music listener may not have repetitive listens.
