    I found it due to a metal band(meshuggah) i like has a lead guitarist whos biggest influence was Allan Holdsworth.

    Awesome musicmanship right across the board on this album, especially the guitar work and bass.

    Just wondering who was the bassist on this album or is it a keyboard sound of some sort?.

    And what you guys think of it?

    The album is a colaboration between allans holdsworth and some other guys, not meshuggah

    meshuggah's lead guitarist has taken alot off allan style into his own.

    Jens Johansson - the keyboardist - plays 'bass' on that one.
    Pretty crappy album altogether...
    "All Night Wrong" is probably the definitive Holdsworth album
    for me; Jimmy Johnson and Chad Wackerman are also smokin'
    on that one!

    I think I saw him play with Stomu Yamashta in the 70s - that was an interesting gig! :)

    I gotta agree,....this is a pretty bad album. The bass is definitely keyboard and holdsworth's playing is particularly mindless and uninspiring.
