I somehow find most of these instrumental shred albums boring. As talented a guitarist and songwriter as Dave Beegle is, this is the case with this disc as well, although if I am in the right mood, this disc is spectacular. "See What I Hear" starts off with a song that sounds like a progressive metal number. I keep expecting to hear some waling Geoff Tate-like vocals, but alas it never happens. The title track sounds like something off a Joe Satriani album. "Primal Roots" is a bass solo. Every song has it's own feel and style. Not a bad album, just not a frequent player in my cd player. Oh, and like any "good" guitar album there is a warning that states "No keyboards of synthesizers were used on this album." Bravo!
