From the moment I heard this band I was hooked. I was going through a time where shredding was all I wanted to do as well as go to Los Angeles and study at GIT (Guitar Institute of Technology). This band personified that school.
“Technical Difficulties” is a guitar player's CD, completely full of technique performed and recorded to near perfection. There isn’t a track on here that I wouldn’t sit and listen to over and over again. However if I were to make a choice of my favourites they would have to be “Miss Mistreater”, “Technical Difficulties” and “Children Of The Grave”.
As I said before this is a guitar player’s album, any player that is interested in pushing themselves to the limit this would be a place to start. Buy this CD and see what Paul Gilbert was doing before MR.BIG was even a thought. (Online July 2, 2004)
