AllMusic Review by

Billed as an "instrumental acoustic album," this disc certainly shows that there is more to Michael Schenker than just a metal guitar god. Much of the music presented here has a neo-classical texture, but the man does find opportunities to rock out. Latin textures show up on occasion as well. Every sound on the album is created by Schenker and his acoustic guitars, totally unaccompanied. A true credit to his skills as a guitarist and composer, the album never feels repetitive or boring. Not many guitarists attempting this type of project have pulled off such a feat. This should appeal to Schenker's UFO/Scorpions/MSG fans while still bringing in listeners who enjoy mellow acoustic guitar stylings. In fact, if he's not careful, Schenker may find himself bringing in some fans of classical guitar.
