Album Review

Attention Deficit is another progressive supergroup that records for the Magna Carta label (i.e., Liquid Tension Experiment, Explorers Club, etc.). Comprised of new age bassist Michael Manring, ex-Primus drummer Tim Alexander, and ex-Testament guitarist (and one-time student of Joe Satriani) Alex Skolnick, Attention Deficit is more about atmospheric songwriting than technical shredding. For those who have lost track of Skolnick since his days with thrash metallists Testament, his playing with Attention Deficit is more akin to King Crimson's Fripp and Belew than Metallica's Hetfield and Hammett. He is also quite an accomplished acoustic guitar player — most of the rhythm guitar tracks on Attention Deficit are acoustic-based. Highlights include the bouncy "Scapula," the vast sound of album opener "ATM," and the hard rocker "Febrile." Although the combination of these three instrumentalists may sound peculiar on paper, they somehow make it all work extremely well.

Years Active: '90s, '00s

After checking the background of some of the members of the supergroup Attention Deficit -- Testament and Primus -- you'd expect the group's music to be metallic prog rock. While there's no denying that the music is quite technically demanding, the all-instrumental trio (which includes Alex Skolnick on electric and acoustic guitars, Tim Alexander on drums and percussion, and Michael Manring on four-, six-, and ten-string basses, loops) is surprisingly more of a funk rock band, who loves to jam on...
