solo album from Danish shredder Torben
Enevoldsen. The first two is "Guitarisma" (1998)
I’m not familiar with the first two albums
so I can’t compare them to “Flying Solo” but to me this is
in the same vein as a Joe Satriani album.
At first I was very disappointed with this
album but I gave it another spin in my CD-player… and then another…
and after about 6-7 spins the music began to grow on me. I have this
feeling that instrumental albums are mostly written for musicians than
for "normal" listeners but “Flying Solo” is a nice
exception… …at least to me.
This release is filled with beautiful melodies
that reveal it selves after 6-7 listens (in my opinion). His guitar work
is top notch and even if some of his soli sound very much the same he is
not losing himself in endless frills and solo-passages. Of course many
won't be able to get into a pure instrumental album, but if you need a
break from the hard hitting Metal and just need to relax for a while,
put this album on and enjoy the melodies there is to be found here.
To pick out single tracks does not really work as they are all quite good, also because they are relatively close together style wise. So if you like instrumental albums maybe you should check this Danish guitarist out?
