Shortcut to the Center
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve generally always put fusion into the progressive rock category. For my money, since fusion generally combines rock with jazz, it’s quite related to a lot of prog. That’s why this disc sits there. It features some strong guitar dominated instrumental fusion. The first two songs are particularly noteworthy because of the appearance of Ronnie Montrose as a guest musician. This is a strong album that should appeal to fans of fusion, instrumental prog and classic rock that’s dominated by guitar.
