    Get better reviewers

    This guy disses a whole genre of music rather than judging this masterpiece of an album by Mr. Timmons. It is really disgusting. "That Was Then, This is Now" is one of the best debut virtuoso albums out there in my opinion (and many others who happen to enjoy "virtuoso instrumentals") and Andy Timmons is an awesome player with tons of soul. There are so many intricacies in his playing and attention to dynamics makes his playing utterly breathtaking. It seems like all of the reviewers on this site bash a whole genre of music they do not understand instead of getting competent people to rate the music according to its genre. You can take this sites review of Bucketheads "Colma" as another example of predjudice. If you look anywhere else, the reviews of the aforementioned albums are overwhelmingly positive.

    Excellent album, pathetic editorial review

    Robert L. Doerschuk from the Rovi All Music Guide obviously doesn't like electric guitar instrumental music. Why he was elected to review a CD of Andy Timmon's solo instrumental work is beyond me. Thankfully, you don't have to read reviews from some blowhard to "know" whether or not this CD is good. Listen to the sample tracks, Google Andy Timmons, check out his website, etc.
    Timmons stands out amongst the "betcha can't play this" crowd with his soul - his tone is unmatched and unmistakable; "crying" with joy, tears, and laughter. This CD shows his progress over several years, and is a great precursor to his phenomenal "Resolution" CD. Craft, tone, and soul ... all rolled into one. That's Andy Timmons ... and this CD rocks!
