Now this is what I’m talking about! A breakthrough, dare I say progressive neo-classical work of art that is by far one of the few appealing releases Lion Music has to offer. Faraz Anwar’s debut album, a solo project that was released in 2001 with absolutely no sound, and now in 2004 it was re-released by Lion Music.

This may be a mistaken assumption, but one imagines that the yellow pages in Pakistan do not contain a huge selection of guitar teachers specializing in rock, metal, fusion and jazz. Apparently influenced by an early Malmsteen video, a young Faraz Anwar honed his craft from the Paul Gilbert tutorials – and has emerged as a guitar virtuoso with a standard of musicianship and classical sensibility that stands shoulder to shoulder with the Satriani / Vai / McAlpine / Johnson set. This is his debut album, essentially a solo project that was released in 2001 with zero acclaim, and has now been re-released by Lion records.

The last couple of months there has been a revival of musicians that make a mixture of progressive metal, jazz-rock and classical techniques. Examples are the last CD’s from Tony MacAlpine, Vinnie Moore and Anand Mahangoe (a Dutch player). From a very unexpected corner, namely Pakistan, comes an artist who doesn’t express this so much in separate compositions, but far more into one song.

Some albums you might listen to are immediately perceivable for their musical scope and vision. Other albums, such as Abstract Point Of View, require time to settle in and time for adjustment to a fresh, new perspective. Always zeroing in on the guitar technique to give me clues to the relative prominence of the musicians involved, I was first struck by the guitar work on this CD so that I realized I needed to stand back from the trees to get a better look at the forest. This is because I immediately realized that there was more going on here than could be absorbed the first time through this strictly instrumental album.

Very seldom do you hear virtuoso electric guitar music that has a truely progressive nature. So many guitarists have descended upon the music world in such a short time period, and very few of these players are showing any visionary tendancies, particularly when considering the quality of the compositions, or any individuality to their approach to music in general. We have been inundated with players that merely want to show us that they are swift manipulators of scales, licks and rhetorical copycating.
