Joshua (J.Smo) Smotherman From the second I clicked play I knew I was going to be in for a worthwhile instrumental guitar experience. Adam does not disappoint with this collection of compositions which put his eclectic tastes and array influences on full display. I can't choose a favorite jam. From start to finish, this album is everything I love about rock music without having pay attention to vocals, which can be overrated (in my humble opinion). Adam has delivered an excellent tapestry of music! Favorite track: Platinum Grime.

postchaos11 Good stuff, I’m amazed by the wide use of instruments and styles. this is not just a “background” music like many of instrumental albums you hear these days. The variety in use of progressions, melodies by instruments like flute, fm synth and guitar give a beautiful psychedelic/mystic theme to the whole album. Especially the mixture of flute/fm synthesis which is my favourite element. Consequently, Persian Fantasy and Isles of Avalon have became my favourite two on the album. Favorite track: Persian Fantasy.

Phase A very good instrumental album by a mature guitar player who knows how to pace himself and not be a showoff!! Satriani/Vai influences are very disctinct at times though a bit more work on the production would have made it a more enjoyable listen, especially on the drums, that sound like microsoft's wavetable synth at times. The songwriting is proper descent and some of the tracks could easily feature on a videogame's soundtrack!! Can't wait for more really!

Yvonne Glasgow Adam Rose is a talented musician. You can hear his talent in each instrumental track on this album - and knowing that he did all of this himself from the comfort of his own home is awe-inspiring.

I was impressed with this entire album. From the jazzy notes to the bluesy sounds. The track I loved the most was "Swampy Thing." It has a darkness to it, but also something whimsical and vintage in the sound. Favorite track: Swampy Thang.
