Picks up where Mahavishnu left off...

(These are excerpts from Tyler Fisher’s review of Lindsey Boullt’s "Composition" with a rating of 4.5/5. Fisher is a staff writer for Sputnik Music Reviews) "Boullt's debut album combines the 70s jazz-rock with modern metal and world music…a guitar virtuoso, the violinist from Mahavishnu Orchestra, and other amazing musicians combining on one album to create a world/fusion/metal sound that picks up where Mahavishnu left off, like recreating the band 30 years later." "While “Bravo Davo…” is a typical virtuoso composition, designed to show off Boullt’s guitar talent, he titled the album Composition for a reason. For the most part, the songs on the album find Boullt the primary member, but in the way that a vocalist is the standout member of a typical rock outfit; he carries the melodies. “Chasing the Whirling Dervish” begins showing off some acoustic guitar work as a feature. On most of the album, Boullt double tracks himself with one acoustic guitar riff helping with chordal structure while he plays his melodies and solos on electric. As the song progresses, violin and guitar add melodies until it finally bursts into a frenetic guitar solo from Boullt. The progression and composition of the song itself shows that Boullt knows how to compose just as well as he plays guitar. Of course, it helps that his backing musicians other than Goodman are extremely talented. Atma Anur plays brilliantly on the drums, switching styles on the fly and bridging the different styles represented on each song perfectly. Sukhawat Ali Khan provides vocals on “Call for Peace”, which adds a whole new dimension to the song. His voice provides a whole new realm of power to the already powerful instrumental music." "Composition" is an album to be admired, as it pushes forward in modern music while still throwing homage back to Boullt’s influences and idols."

World Metal? Is there such a thing?

Although, this album has jazz rock stylings present..it tends to lean more towards the world music song structures. But, what is interesting is that most world music is not this heavy or busy in the arrangements. It tends to be more Vai-ish than Satriani-ish, but neither artist could be directly compared to it. Overall, the songs tend to challenge and draw the listener in by their odd timings, and lack of typical formulas found in commercial music.
