Fans of Jimmy Page’s ‘Guitar Army’ approach to composition and arrangement will instantly fall for Roots and Roads. The first moments of Wings immediately introduce the core of what Yossi Sassi refers to as “oriental rock,” multiple string-based timbres merging into glorious melodies while a solid rock groove holds everything down. It’s tempting to listen repeatedly to that track’s intro alone; there’s so much going on that you’ll find yourself picking up fresh subtleties each time you go back. Wings is also a vocal-led track – an interesting choice for someone primarily known for their six-string skills – and a very cool piece of songcraft.
