His first solo album was just released and I recieved it today. I haven't had a chance to listen to it, but I have scimmed through each song. My first impression is that it's just ok. The production is not great. He seems to be able to play well, he can play very fast, but so far I haven't heard much substance. Keep in mind that I haven't really been able to listen to it all the way. Also, not that it matters, I don't care for his tone. It could be the below average production quality but his tone sounds thin. After I've had a chance to really sit back and HEAR the album I'll give a better review. Anybody else have the album or have opinions on him?
