    Think this release got overshadowed by Dream Theater on the same day, because I haven't seen anyone talking about it. Really enjoying this record so far!

    I've only listened to the first two singles maybe a week or more ago, but Marco Sfogli's stuff is always incredible.

    Aside from being very technically proficient, he's been one of my go-to examples for exceptionally 'musical' guitar players since I started listening to him back in 2007 or 2008.

    I'll be interested to see where he's gone with this new album. His solo stuff on his first two albums was more in the vein of that Petrucci style playing. But the creative range he has, looking especially at his work with Alex Argento and Argento-associated projects (e.g. IceFish and the Elba Triangle with Tom Quayle), it is nothing short of incredible.

    Hugely underrated guitar player, IMO. One of the best going!

    His excellent phrasing, fluidity, and sheer technical ability never cease to amaze me. He could play circles around most, if not all modern 'virtuosic' guitarists...

    This one got overshadowed by DT's release as well for me. I picked it up Monday and have listened to it twice. I do like it but needs more spins from me as most instrumental albums do before they 'stick' in my head!
