Review

Points North is an interesting trio of first class musicians, guitarist Eric Barnett´s style reminds a bit of Steve Morse and Eric Johnson, he is brilliant. You might know bassist Uriah Duffy´s name from his time in Whitesnake, on this album "Road less traveled" he gets to show what a terrific bassplayer he is. Behind the drumkit, they´ve got veteran drummer Kevin Aiello that back up the other two like a true pro. We´re talking instrumental guitar rock here in the same vein as Dixie Dregs, Dave Sharman and even Rush at times. They even got a song named "Grace under pressure", that one smells like Rush for miles. The opener "Vast horizons" is more of a fusion rocker and it´s also one of the best tracks here along with the energetic "High wire". Ohyeah, let the guitar do the talking!
