"The Maze" teams Vinnie Moore's guitar playing (flashy, fast, very jazzy yet still hard rock heavy metal) with the legendary keyboard talents of Tony MacAlpine. The instrumental tracks feature plenty of Moore's trademark mega-soloing (witness "Cryptic Dreams", "Eye Of The Beholder" and "King Of Kings") over contemporary progessive, and neoclassical grooves. "The Maze" also showcases the muscular bass guitar of Dave LaRue, and quality drumming courtesy of Shane Galass. In the tradition of "Mind's Eye", "The Maze" offers futher evidence that Vinnie Moore is here to shred.
