DrewV's latest, Energy Light Matter, manages to be both relaxing and
invigorating. It kicks off with a soul-filled riff slightly reminiscent of
Floyd's "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" sans the sinister undertones, and then
launches into some Yngwie Malmsteenish exhilarating acrobatic octave scales
without the stuffy sauerkraut over-satiated feeling.  Great tune for firing up some
incense, closing your eyes, wielding your air guitar, and drifting off into
cosmic blues paradise.  Hats off to the Drewster!
Michael Heron - Laredo,TX
