Review Summary: More Ovaltine Please!

Al Di Teola is an artist when it comes to craft. Placing high in the ranks of the greatest musician’s to ever exist; Al Di has made a name for himself that will last through the ages. The diversity created reflects the many creations of planet earth. Fusing many styles into one, Al Di creates a sound unlike any other artist.

Two to tango shows the ability of the waltz. Isfahan uses operatic styles much like the ancients. Mediterranean Sundance showcases acoustic speed and flamenco styles.

The overall feel of Acoustic Anthology is one of excitment. It adds hope into the listener with faster tones and transitions, carrying a lightened mood. Pushing the boundaries of music in general, Al Di never sacrifices emotion for wank, although a master of the guitar. The variations of styles give this album an easy listen that does not bore, or become stagnant.

With a plethora of albums to whet everyone's appetite, Acoustic Anthology places high in Al Di's heirarchy chain. When Jazz is done right, and music in general for that matter, the human brain releases endorphins, that make you high. Acoustic Anthology is done right. You can really feel Al Di’s passion for the feeling and art. Once again, in Isfahan, a classical-like symphony is felt, gracing beauty’s wings endlessly. This eleven minute piece is one of Al Di’s most accomplished figures.

For a musical experience like no other, grab this album and love it.

With a pluthera of albums to wet everyones taste, Acoustic Anthology holds high esteem for generations to come and inspiring artist alike.


There is just so much that's wrong with this sentence.

*plethora
*whet
*everyone's
*taste buds OR appetite

Try and find the problems after the comma on your own.
