When I reviewed German guitarist Raimund Burke´s 2008 album "Into my arena", I gave it 3,5 stars at melodic.net and thought it was a very entertaining guitar oriented rock album. This year he releases his first album again but completely re-recorded because he thought it needed a major face lift, Raimund wasn´t happy with the mix of "Get it" from 2005 and first wanted to remix it but then changed his mind re-recorded the whole thing. And just like "Into my arena", the music is a mix of fusion, hard rock and classical music. I also like this new version a lot and especially love the songs "Break through" that bring thoughts to Gary Moore meets Michael Schenker and the Jeff Beck-like "Come on". But I also want to give thumbs up to strong musical pieces such as "Balance" that has Ritchie Blackmore´s spirit all over it and the progressive "The day before". And oh, I almost forgot......the production is great so I think Raimund did the right thing.
