ALEX MASI Late Night At Desert Rimrock
Lion Music (2006)

Multi instrumentalist Masi plays all but drums here (former Yngwie Malmsteen band John Macaluso handles those) for this instrumental album.

Opener "Vagina Denata" features some neat guitar work, Spanish in bursts, thrash in others.

While there are nods at Masi's neo classical output, it's more of a muso album, with lots of intricate playing and sometimes a jamming style.

The guitar work (and his bass work too) is all excellent, but few of the tracks have real direction or cohesion. It's not jazz fusion but metal disjointed in the same way, it's more likely to please guitarists than fans of Masi's other output.

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
