You know him as the mastermind of Fates Warning, in which he has been the only consistent member since the group's beginning. If you expect to listen something similar to his band forget it! Jim's sound, compositions, and arrangements are stunning and full of emotion. In this first solo attempt Jim plays with our emotions. Acoustic guitar, cello and violin are the only instruments used in this album. It is a very emotional album even without words. The release can be listened as a whole, without skipping any track. Enjoy it with open minds and loud sound !!!
