This album is undoubtedly one of the most important shred guitar albums of all time. Although it is a tiny step down from Speed Metal Symphony (IMO) it is great nonetheless. The guitar work is blisterng, and it gives the listener a clear indication of why Becker and Friedman would go on to achieve the success they would latter in their careers. The solos alternate between shredding and sweep picking and melody, which makes for quite the listen. The riffs are powerful, even though the bass is mysteriously absent throughout much of the album. The drumming is a highlight as well. The fills, use of double bass, and beats in general really help to bring the songs up to a new level. The vocals are much improved over SMS, and are powerful throughout. In short, if you are a fan of Becker/Friedman or shred in general you need this album.

An incredible album, its only flaw is that it can be a little hard to digest. For fans of incredible guitar playing, Marty Friedman and Jason Becker deliver from beginning to end a truly terrifying style of neoclassical heavy metal. Marty Friedman joined Megadeth for Rust In Peace just a few years after recording this, so fans of that style will appreciate this. Jason Becker's solo album Perpetual Burn is very similar (and a continuation) of the style found here.
