He is still in my opinion of the unrecognized and under appreciated guitarists and composers out there. His lyrics are clever and heartfelt, and his brilliant technique truly makes him a giant. When you get Eric Johnson and joe satriani - or is it Steve Vai?- to join up with you on an album, that's truly transcendent. We don't deserve guitar playing this exceptional. But we will surely take it!
Style and substance
Sonny has always been a guitar wiz, but his writing has matured and provides his personal and unmistakeable signature--fine guitar work, great songs.
It's the Journey.

This album takes you on a trip; a seamless exploration of a soundscape that is uniquely home to one of the most gifted guitarists gracing this planet. Each track flows into the next almost as if the following song is an harmonic of the previous one. Each playing of the album transports the listener to a new space. This is one album to play and replay again and again. A masterpiece. Thanks Sonny.

Certainly not as raw as some of his earlier CDs but the sound that Sonny produces is extraordinary; the chiming of bells to the howling of a wild animal. It never fails to give me goosebumps. This CD really showcases his extraordinary skill and this time it's just his guitar doing the singing.
