I respect this, and I am glad even Metalheads can appreciate it, but I unfortunately don’t really enjoy it. Also… this is not a Metal album. There is some electric guitar, yes, but the Neoclassical label is a misnomer and likely only attached due to Becker’s past.

What we have instead is a New Age Modern Classical album, full of synthed instruments that still sound a bit cheap, but are composed nicely. I do actually like myself some nice New Age, but only when it is emotionally provocative. This is more like… putting notes together for the sake of it. It doesn’t achieve any nice moods or atmospheres. Which was exactly like his guitar playing, and I wasn’t a fan for the same reason. I like the song Blue, but that’s it.

It's at least consistent in quality, there aren’t any bad tracks per say, it’s just a style that doesn't much appeal to me. Props to its development though.

level 9   90/100
'First album in history released by a person affected by ALS'. Simply amazing, what a composer and musician.
level 21   85/100
štýlovo úplne odlišné, soft/experimental rock doplnený atmosférické a klasické prvky
level 5   85/100
그 뛰어난 연주를 듣지 못하는 것과 함께 메탈성향이 줄었다는게 아쉽지만 열정만으로 이런 결과물을 냈다는 점에서 큰 박수를 주고 싶다. End Of The Beginning은 진짜 좋은 트랙
level 16   80/100
속주 기타나 메탈사운드에 대한 비중이 크지 않기에 메탈킹덤 평점은 높이 줄 수가 없다. 하지만 기타리스트가 아닌 뮤지션 Jason Becker의 앨범으로 놓고 본다면 큰 감동과 여운이 느껴지는 수작
level 8   84/100
루게릭 병을 앓으면서 자신의 머리와 눈동자의 움직임으로 만든 곡들 필청 primal 눈물난다
level 1   82/100
루겔릭병으로 어쩔수없이 열정 하나만으로 만들어야만 했던 앨범
