”This sucks”!! – Well, those were the words coming out of my girlfriends’ mouth when I put on this CD….:)  

Although I don’t share her point of view, I partially understand her cos’ you’d really need a very profound interest in Neoclassical shredding in order to enjoy this piece of music!  

For fans of the genre this will come as a state-of-the-art album, mixing clichee Malmsteen-inspired guitarplaying with more progressive song structures.  

Kudos to Michael Harris, however, cos’ he really knows how to entertain and keep it all exciting, even when we’re flying through the stratosphere at Mach speed ten….  

The album title, ”Orchestrate”, really reveals a lot about the concept, cos’ if professionally produced grand orchestration and fast instrumental Metal is your thing, you’d know what to expect…And then some!  

A really great album!
