First time i ever heard this thing i was impressed.Some very nice shredding from Friedman/Becker.The only thorn in the listener's side are the vox.They are complete and total sh*t and only serve as a distraction.That dude behind the microphone is a peckerhead......

ON THE BEST GUITAR SHREDDING cd ever 95/100 PETER MARINO from the mighty LE MANS and later found in the great 9.0 "gone too far" CD ,singing is in the very HEAVY way but is amazing ! JASON BECKER And MARTY FRIEDMAN are like guitar ALIENS , the playing level is so high and the melodies so ......BEAUTIFUL ! IMO the track "SPEED METAL SYMPHONY" buy it now

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: August 15, 2007 at 13:36

An album short in length...why not 10 tracks at least???...well for guitar players this could be like a wet dream but for me it was a simple album...a matter of tastes i guess...tracks 1,4(instr),5,6 & 7(instr)are o.k. ...80/100

Very Good Heavy Metal/SM! Friedman, Becker and Marrino 3 Aces = a Super Band! Savage(A1 Gold), Desert Island(A1 Gold, One of the best Metal songs OF ALL TIMES BY FAR! Top 10 forever in my Metal songs of all times! The Kind of songs for an Immortal! I will always listen to this song in the beyond, pure good energy to fight for good and for God! style, power, solos, etc etc), Burn the Ground pocas canciones pueden estar al nivel de Desert Island, desde hace 30 aņos en mi viejo casete y despues en CD simply AWESOME! un alimento que llena de energia mi Espiritu y Alma Inmortal! a song like "Desert Island" pay the album and with "Savage" ufff 85/100.
