A casual listen will have you feeling that the player is mature and fully in control of their playing on many levels. From melodic structure to composition, you know its a player nearing the peak of their powers, after some 20-something years of playing live, guitar tuition, and of course writing. Think of how you feel when you hear Petrucci, or Satriani, or Vai, you know damn well its them when you hear the first riff and more so you know they are literally talking through their guitar, they have such command. This 4th release from Sean is by far the most restrained yet explosive, and compositional rounded release of his so far.
