Master Of Paradise
With "Master Of Paradise", Tony MacAlpine heightens his status in the fraternity of musicians. MacAlpine debuts as a lead vocalist on this album, as he continues to stretch most accepted contemporary musical boundaries. All the well-known MacAlpine ingredients are present, the blinding arpeggios, the neo-classical compositions, and the trademark dynamic rhythms. As he has been doing for over 15 years, Tony MacAlpine continues to push the musical envelope. "Master Of Paradise" even includes one of MacAlpine's trademarks, the piano solo piece -- this time Franz Liszt's "Au Bord D'une Source". (Note: The CD has an overall lower sound level than most CDs - it is not a defect, they are all that way.)
