Harris, Michael - Distorted Views
As son of two musicians, Michael Harris had to have much musical talent. Born in Ohio, he soon discovered his enthusiasm for guitars. In his Highschool, he started a band called TYRANT, a heavyband, which later turned into ARCH RIVAL. After he settled over to Texas, he founded SURGEON.

The album I have in my hands contains well-done instrumental songs but they aren't really exciting. Maybe something for musicians, no idea. I was soon bored. Compared with instrumental classics like "Mind's Eye" from Vinnie Moore or "Edge Of Insanity" from Tony McAlpine but also Yngwie Malmsteen's "Rising Force", Harris got the worst of it. His music, as technical faultless it may be, has somehow no soul... who actually buys pure instrumental records today? I'm not... (Online July 21, 2003)
