Matt Reniscoff writes in the liner notes about Allan Holdsworth's CD "Secrets", "This is not a guitar synthesizer album, nor is it a guitar album. It would be perfectly accurate to describe it as nothing like you've ever heard before, and Allan as a guitar player like none you've heard before, but the statement's shortsightedness does a disservice to Allan's vision. Allan Holdsworth consistently creates music like no other: devil takes hindmost, means be damned. And it's not in the arrangement of notes he plays, the speed at which he plays them or the tools he uses; the beauty is held in the passionate way he makes them gleam together from a deep-seated feeling to a tangible mass of sound - and back to a feeling once again. This is like nothing you've heard before. Close your eyes, open your ears, and capture a glimpse of Allan Holdsworth's secret."
