Carlton, who I'm told spent time in the trenches with BOC and Cinderella, delivers some instrumental power-trio style (minus the other two guys matching his heaviness) guitar pummeling. He turns his ax into a broadax slaughtering his sonic enemies! His amps scream to heaven and God nods approvingly! He hits his pedals like he was biking up the rainbow bridge of Asgard! Even on the more introspective tracks his guitar ungently weeps, meaning, it wails.
