This recording is where I always thought Stu should be. I heard his album "The Urge" and it sounds like a generic rock record, this on the other hand has it all. It has chops, great melodies, and just a little bit of gratuitous soloing thrown in for good measure. This album is absolutely perfect the way it is which makes me excited to see what he's going to put out next. How can you top perfection? We'll see.
