After his untimely release from Megadeth, Chris and his brother Mark released this solo CD. Musically "Return to Metropolis" has some similarities to Megadeth, but also bears some resemblence to other shred masters like Joe Satriani. I was a bit surprised by how metallic this album is. Chris is quite the shredder, and on top of being a great soloist, he is also a good songwriter. "Return to Metropolis" showcases a progressive mastery that would give a preview to Chris and Mark's next project Damn the Machine.
