A great electric guitar album. Less energetic than his first album (EE Ticket - rates 12 on a 10 scale!) but still excellent. I consider Bonilla to be what Eddie Van Halen SHOULD have been had he not degenerated into teeny bop crap, or perhaps what Joe Satriani could be if he had more soul. Bonilla is an EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT guitarist and you MUST buy both his solo albums ("EE Ticket" and "American Matador").

Para escucharlo detenidamente, mejor que su EE Ticket, buen album Instrumental de Rock Fusion. Cosas de Satriani y si que tiene destreza/habilidad pero no derrocha mucho sentimiento y en eso Satriani está muy arriba. "In the Blue Corner" es mi favorita y tambien la versión que hace del clásico de Procol Harum "A Whiter Shade of Pale" en la voz del Gran Glenn Hughes. 7.8/10

Great instrumental album !! I just happened across this one and was pleasantly suprised. Even my 6 yr old daugter likes this album. It has a latin grrove to it to boot. This a must have for all instrumental collectors !! 86/100
