I have been an Al DiMeola fanatic for years - I have everything he's put out on disc and have seen him live more times than I can count. Al is the best guitarist of my generation and this CD is FANTASTIC! The previous reviewer obviously didn't get it. This CD is as good as it gets. It’s a step in Al's evolution. The Music is complex and beautiful. The Telarc production is stellar. If you have a high quality hi-fi system you’ll love it! "Make sure you listen to the SACD layer." I can hardly wait for his next effort.

I have been an Al DiMeola fanatic for years - I have everything he's put out on disc and have seen him live more times than I can count. For the last few years I've been hoping for somthing truly great, and time and again I'm let down. Al is one of the best guitarists in the world, no doubt about it, but this cd is laughable. From the cheesy drum programming to the God-awful synthesizers that show up everywhere, Al has not taken a step forward in years. I enjoyed The Infinite Desire, was satisfied with The Grande Passion, and forced myself to like Flesh on Flesh, but this is getting ridiculous. "Consequence of Choas"? Hardly worthy of the name. There is no fire, no burning passion, just some standard DiMeola fret-play. It's just not interesting. The only song that made me turn the stereo up was Africana Suite, beyond that the whole production is stale. There is no chaos to be found anywhere on this album. It is all sterile and clean. If this was released in 1988, I would have been thrilled. But now? Not so much. I wonder what he is listening to to think that the music on this disc is pushing his art forward. And it's not just DiMeola doing this. Even John McLaughlin's new album, Industrial Zen, was a sad attempt by a world class musician. I wish these guys would forget who they are and just play the guitar.

This album is excellent from start to finish, and this is one for Return To Forever fans as well, because not only Al Di Meola is on this album, but his Return To Forever band mate Chick Corea on piano, and Al Di Meola's bandmates as well, and this album will definately get Return To Forever fans fired up, because of the reunion tour of this year (2008). All Return To Forever fans, jazz fans, and guitar enthusiasts will indeed enjoy this album, and Al Di Meola is a recommended guitarist to listen to, for the young guitarists who are taking lessons too.
