This disk should send a lot of high-level players scurrying to the woodshed. In addition to incredible technique, Muris is highly listenable, emotional and musical. In the interim between this and the releases from his newest effort, he continues to quickly gain even more incredible chops. Considering he has only been playing since the time of his home country of Bosnia's crisis in the 1990s and his young age, we should be hearing from this amazing musician for a long time to come. Rock on, Muris. – from ***** Guitar Genius At Work, August 21, 2008 By & © Kim Weighous "K.
