His guitar playing is so fluid and comfortable. He adds quite a bit of soul to the sometimes polished and easily accessible pop melodies and his arrangements of the tracks are generally of high quality too. Marty Friedman isn't afraid to show his softer side, that is for sure. From very first sounds album's music sounds very energetic and bombastic, with quite pleasant tunes. The result of this desire was realized when he hooked up with composer and producer Kitaro, a fairly well known Japanese new age artist who has released a ridiculous amount of albums.

He is a mainly self taught guitarist, known for his formidable sweep picking technique, excellent improvisation skills, use of exotic scales and overall amazing technical facility on the guitar.
This album marks Marty Friedman's creative peak. I took his sweet melody and added so many twists and turns that it became a mammoth of Martyisms in tandem with a large side of Jinxx that has yet to be heard by his fans. But in whole, the album is just not very successful collection of such enough faceless compositions without even traces of experimentation. Every track on here is outstanding but I still have a few faves. Sorrow and Madness featuring Jinxx of Black Veil Brides 3. They are put in front along with atmospheric sensibilities and sonic exploration. This album is crisp and clean and every tiny sound being magnified into its full potential.
It features appearances from Jinxx of Black Veil Brides, Shiv Mehra of Deafheaven and Jorgen Munkeby of Shining. I had the pleasure of catching his performance a few years ago, and now I have the privilege to hear his new record. Download Marty Friedman - One Bad M. The melodies are so rich and textured. As a result, this song actually sounds progressive, easily the most interesting and memorable cut off the album.

The music here is thunderous traditional 80s metal with speed ladened licks running up and down the scales shifting moods and tempos in a flash but also contains fair amounts of laid back slow building crescendo inducing scales and chord changes. This is an album for lovers of virtuoso musicianship. The production is pretty raw and obviously designed to be that way. This is not a record to prove one's technical prowess.
The overall results of this project are sort of a mixed bag. Sometimes a song you really love doesn't make it to the album because it doesn't fit nicely in the sequencing. I feel like I have a debut album here. Every little note is well placed and the aim of this music is to create a pleasing emotional response while simultaneously blowing your mind technically speaking. Although in a compositional view, this could very well do the trick.
