Ring of Fire - Dreamtower - reviewed by: Nailer
Guitar riffs are downplayed leaving the vocals the dominate focus of the overall sound. Tony MacAlpine is a great neo-classical player, but his guitar work is mainly emphasised in the solos and at times I don't think the speed-runs go well with the flow of the songs. I could really do without the little two-second, bloop-bleep-bloop, guitar/keyboard arpeggio leads that are thrown in the mix. They just irritate me. It's like when you're enjoying a good TV show and some idiot keeps walking in front of your view.
I feel that some of the songs could be tightened up a bit with less of the instrumental passages and a thicker production, but overall the cd is a nice, friendly listen and songs like "Make Believe" and "Laputa" are catchy enough to be hit singles probably anywhere.
