Oh, that all modern instrumental music was this soulful and interesting. As the title hints, stepping across stylistic boundaries is what Bryan Beller, Guthrie Govan, and Marco Minnemann aim to do, and their pursuit of noholds barred fun—as well as their virtuosic command of their instruments— is a blast to hear. The chops are fierce, the tones are primo (check out Beller on “Ohhhh Nooo”), and the moods cover the spectrum, from groovy to menacing to playful to thrashing to introspective. Highlights include the arpeggiator- like 16ths on “Dance of the Aristocrats” and the “Bright Size Life”-ready bass solo in “Gaping Head Wound.”
