Album reviews

Mr. Fastfinger’s “In Motion” is by far the most unique and captivating instrumental albums I have ever listened to.”
Colin Moriarty / SHREDAHOLIC

Well, first of all, clear your schedule. Once you push play the only thing you’ll be able to do for the next 59 minutes is feel the groove! For me that means involuntary head and feet movement plus copious amounts of air-instrumentation.”
9/9 stars / Brendan Biryla / HOLLYWOOD METAL

“And again those contributions by famous guests are pleasant. But by no means essential. Because “In Motion” is strong as Hulk by Mr. Fastfinger’s very own rights. Without ever coming too close to mere fretboard freakiing, the album tells the story of a spiritual journey – almost without using words. In the end, Sensei has to confront his inner demons. We only give away this much: this can’t be achieved without some virtuoso guitar playing.”
(quote translated from german to english by K. Reckert) Klaus Reckert / GAESTELISTE.DE

Here is a disk that is all about the praising of the infinite number of possible sonic patterns and tendencies you have never heard so far.”
