Without doubt one of the most exciting albums of the Instrumental Guitar history

From: Trybalvibe Date: February 17, 2002 at 9:25
Classic!!!!!!This album and Yngwie's "Rising Force" were the two all-time best prog-metal albums ever.

From: Phantazm Date: July 22, 2002 at 23:22
Only reason i even know about McAlpine is from my bud that went to G.I.T. in L.A. and used to axe with him. He was truly one of the best.

From: Baris Date: September 17, 2002 at 8:17
An industrious instrument show. But hey, where is his next album "Maximum Security"?

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: September 21, 2002 at 16:48
Tipico disco instrumental de la decada de los 80,la verdad que la primera vez que lo escuché me gustó bastante,pero claro estoy hablando de hace trece años.Bueno en definitiva,muy buen disco instrumental,de sonido heavy muy parecido a los que sacó Vinnie Moore por aquella época.Por cierto Mcalpine tiene un disco en plan AOR(con cantante) editado en el año 1990 llamado Eyes Of The World que esta muy guapo.

From: robert Date: October 21, 2002 at 9:55
¿donde esta su mejor disco? la obra de arte EYES OF THE WORLD. faltan mogollon de discos, pero a mi me parece q ese es imprescindible y eso q este no esta para nada mal, pero echo en falta la labor del vocalista ALAN SEHORN.

From: Metal_Warrior Date: January 4, 2003 at 0:07
i think that the first 2 comments are enough.This album is one of the best instrumental albums ever

From: Xabofar Date: June 1, 2003 at 13:40
Brilliant instrumental music from the "Varney School" in the vein of Joey Tafolla (Out of the Sun) or Vinnie Moore (mind´s Eye and Time Odyssey. Search also the second from Mr. Macalpine (Maximum security) because is equally brilliant than this

From: CK Date: February 20, 2004 at 3:34
I've always been a T.M. fan and Sheehan/Smith are incredible as well! I am a sound engineer and I've ran sound for Steve Smith with "Vital Information", it's just exciting to hear these guys play together even after all of these years.

From: Metalhead Date: August 31, 2004 at 14:17
If you've already heard Yngwie's Rising Force, then what the hell do people need another one of this?

From: KickYourFace Date: June 23, 2005 at 17:09
The song "The Witch and the Priest" is incredible! Take my word for it. It is rediculously catchy & I RARELY even like instrumental songs... It's worth buying that CD just for that song.

From: ROBERT Date: November 21, 2007 at 10:52
