jose correa This is simply one of the best instrumental albums I have listened to in my whole life!!! Favorite track: Pound of Flesh.

TDI This album had a similar effect on me to the first time I heard The Surfing with the Alien album by Satriani. It's different and full of interesting sounds and textures and a maybe getting a little weird at times, but overall fascinating. I have been listening to nothing but this album since I bought it and I just can't get enough. Favorite track: Tin Man March.
