  • Amer Alameddine’s Top Release of January 2011

Highlights: “Still Ain’t Enough for Me”, “Undertow” and “Once Upon a Time”.

Positives: After reuniting with Paul Gilbert, the band reclaimed its old sound characterized by blazing guitar solos, catchy riffs and fast bass lines mixed with strong vocals. This album reminds the fans of what Paul Gilbert had to offer to this band.
