Great CD! Very nice melodies ..and whoaaah whatta guitar playing!!

From: Scandinavia Date: December 27, 2003 at 8:07
Yes, this one's a classic! You can't go wrong here if you like shredders....As mentioned above the melodies emphasize this perfectly diversified piece of instrumental rock-history. Not one dull moment!

Cuando todos los laureles se los llevaba Satriani y su Surfing..quien suscribe colocaba este disco en el mismo nivel.Aqu no solo hay tecnica y velocidad,sino armonia y melodias tipicas de la msica clsica,raiz absoluta de toda la obra .Porcelain Doll,es la muestra cabal de ello. Key to the City,The King`s Cup,Tears of Sahara,Autumn Lords,suenan plenas de aquellos ingredientes. 10/10 y reitero:clsico a la altura de cualquier guitarra de los 80. carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

A perfect 10 if you're into neoclassical metal.Undoubtly one of the best albums of the genre.

From: MADMAX Date: January 4, 2004 at 19:17
Indeed. Great album from Macalpine! Very nice melodic songs with wonderful guitar playing.

From: MADMAX Date: March 3, 2004 at 1:54
Whoops. I didn't notice that i had already praised this one =) ..well, this can't be praised enough!

From: ROB GARCIA Date: March 17, 2004 at 11:38
definetely one of the most inspired instrumental albums ever released.tony proves to be an excellent guitar wizard with a tremendous skill when his fingers touch the fretboard.

From: Animal Date: January 19, 2005 at 12:50
One of the greatest instrumental albums of all time. The best song (in my opinion) is definently "Key to the City". Doing that song live sounds like it could be a blast! Tony makes me sick! But in the good way! 10/10

From: Metalhead66 Date: January 20, 2005 at 12:04
Not only can Tony play the guitar(Great),but he is actually a Better Piano player if that is possible!!Great songs(yes that's what I said) But also Great Melodies.After listening to it for a week or so(when it was first released) I realized there were no Vocals...(In a cloud of smoke I Guess, cough cough..dude!).

From: Jim Papageorg Date: February 26, 2005 at 14:26
What can anyone say abou this album i think that with the first Malmsteen album are the best instrumental albums ever. Tony shows thathe is a great songwriter who can write melodic songs with a feeling that can move your soul. He doesn't show off like most guitarists of his genre. As we say in my country EPOS!

From: howe Date: February 26, 2005 at 19:25
This is one of the best instrumental albums in the history of rock music. All great catchy melodies, incredible solos, beautiful progressions. 10/10

From: shoemaker Date: January 14, 2009 at 8:14
