Feeding The Wheel. Jordan Rudess. Tony Macalpine. Chromaticity is the ninth studio album by guitarist Tony MacAlpine, released on August 7, through Shrapnel Records. Prog Around The World. Devils Slingshot. MacAlpine made his name in the '80s as a neo-classical shredder. In recent years, he's explored jazz fusion, particularly in Planet X alongside Donati.
Sheehan's cameo on Planet X's MoonBabies probably helped spawn this trio. For all its firepower, it's surprisingly restrained. Most songs feature a perfunctory rock intro that leads to more limber fusion workouts. The rock riffs are heavy and bland, but the fusion parts are tasty. MacAlpine soars up and down the fretboard with ease, evoking a less flashy Steve Vai.

If you are a Sherinian, Stevens, Holdsworth or Lukather collector, get it. If not, buy your mother some flowers and give her a kiss on the cheek. She will appreciate that more than you would like this disc. Then the real variety starts. His violin is really at the front of the music here.
After this, we're back on the heavy guitar music with Trojan Horse. The final track on the album my version anyway is The River Song. This is the first track that Derek Sherinian has done with vocals. All those years playing with Ozzy obviously had an effect on Zakk Wylde.
This song is not a bad one but it's not really progressive either as it's in a similar mould to what you'd get with Ozzy Osbourne or Black Sabbath. So on the whole, a diverse album with excellently-played music.
Derek Sherinian's next solo album is due in May As Sherinian mentions in the liner notes Holdsworth has never been involved in something so heavy before. Check out Holdsworth after 3 minutes. Goodman adds some violin on this one as well. This is heavy and uptempo out of the gate, and it closes even heavier. Stevens is clearly influenced by Beck on this one, he's incredible.
This one has a thunderous soundscape with outstanding guitar solos. This one is very latin sounding with these beautiful intricate sounds that are so impressive. Before he comes in with his soaring melodies we get some organ to give it a gospel flavour. My least favourite tune.
