Guitar Player - March 1993

Brett Garsed of Nelson and T.J. Helmerich leap far beyond pop with their compelling two-guitar performances. No ordinary shredfest here: Fabulous technique, gorgeous melodies, lush tones, a seasoned blues sensibility, and all-original compositions easily place this among the most listenable CDs of the genre. Scattered passages recall Holdsworth, Satch, and solo Vai, but Garsed and Helmerich mostly plow fertile new ground, with Tribal Tech's Gary Willis assisting on bass.
