Prvé sólové album gitarového svetobežníka a špičkového hráča v jednej osobe: James -a Murphy -ho, ktorý sa preslávil účinkovaním v kapelách ako Testament, Obituary, Death, Disincarnate, Hallows Eve, Konkhra a v mnohých ďalších ako hosť, sa hudobne nieslo v kombinácii 5-tich inštrumentálnych piesní so 4-mi spievanými, štýlovo sa pohybujúce od Instrumental/Fusion/Shred k Prog./Power Metal -u. Osobne sa mi spievané piesne na danom albume páčia viac -pokladám ich za výraznejšie - tak to bolo aj v dobe vydania, keď som prvý krát počul album a rovnaký názor mám aj teraz. Aj keď samozrejme inštrumentálky sú tiež dobré.
Spievané: v dvoch ("Since Forgotten", "The Last One") sa predstavil Devin Townsend (v tej dobe známy zo spolupráce s ďalším gitarovým virtuózom Steve Vai a vlastnej skupiny Strapping Young Lad). V jednej ("Touching The Earth") Chuck Billy (samozrejme Testament), pričom v časti piesne ho dopĺňa podarený ženský spev - Michelle Rae Dean. Štvrtú spievanú pieseň ("Deeper Within") zvládol celkom dobre mne málo známy Eddie Ellis (naspieval jedno album kapely Haji's Kitchen z roku 1995). Po inštrumentálnej stránke album podporili/doplnili: mne neznámy Brad Russell - basa, legenda Deen Castronovo - bicie (známy aj z kapiel Ozzy Osbourne, Bad English, Geezer, Cacophony, Wild Dogs, atď.). A ako hostia: Matt Guillory - klávesy (James LaBrie, Dali's Dilemma, Mullmuzzler, John West, Beyond the Katakomb,

왜 사람들이 제임스머피를 데스계의 마티 프리드맨이라하는지 십분이해가되는앨범입니다..한곡은정규트랙이고 또다음곡은 연주곡이고...이런식으로 앨범이 진행되는데요..보컬트랙은 곡마다 보컬들이 다른걸루기억됩니다..이중에서 데빈 타운센트가 부른곡이있는데요 아마 3번트랙인거 같네요..사악함이 묻어나는 데빈의 보컬과 머피의 주고받기식전개가 상당합니다..손에 꼽을만치 갠찬은 곡입니다..

썩 인상적이지 못한 앨범. 멜로디도 그닥이고, 제임스 머피의 스타일도 잘 모르겠다.

SYL의 데빈이 1, 3번 척 빌리가 5번 트랙에서 보컬을 담당했음. 그밖에 6번 트랙에서 세컨기타를 담당한 그랙 하우의 이름도 눈 에 띔. 멋진 멤버들의 조화 속에 튀지 않으면서도 파워풀한 머피의 플레이가 인상적임

Shadow's Fall 듣고 한방에 뻑갔던... 투베이스 명인 딘 카스트로노보를 필두로 한 졸라 빵빵한 세션들. 일류 기타리스트로써의 면모를 여지없이 보여준다.
