5 out of 5 Stars!
On War Dance, each musician SMOKES! It’s Musicianship with a capital “M” all the way! Gary Moore’s guitar playing has never been hotter, Don Airey earns his stripes to prove he’s one of the top keyboardists of all time, and the rhythm section of John Mole (bass) and Jon Hiseman (percussion) is amazing. The interaction between musicians is breathtaking and each track is a killer.
It’s no wonder that modern-day “progressive rock” groups such as Dream Theater and Symphony X found inspiration for their music by listening to classics such as this album. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!
