Hard Hat Area
"Hard Hat Area" was the 1994 studio album that brought guitarist Allan Holdsworth, keyboardist Steve Hunt, bassist Skuli Sverrisson, and drummer Gary Husband together on a fusion tour-de-force, displaying a good amount of improvistional soloing over Holdsworth's modern, guitar-centric compositions. The back cover of "Hard Hat Area" even lists each member's solo sections for each tune - nice touch. Check out "Ruhkukah", "House Of Mirrors" and the title track for some truly Holdsworthian signature sound shock.
