Fantastic solo album from Electrum guitarist Kulju. Continuing in the "power trio" vein of his group but leaning far more towards the fusion side of things, "Abstract Expression" is a powerhouse! Dave's music is similar in feel to recordings made by the likes of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani or Eric Johnson. This is perhaps somewhat more in line with the prog tradition as Kulju grew up listening to all the 70s prog greats like Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, Rush and Gentle Giant. This is not to say that his music sounds like any of those artists (though maybe a little Rush seeps through now & then) but you can hear in the foundations some of the elements that made those bands so interesting. The guitar playing is second to none & the recording is extremely tight and crisp for an independent release. If you like guitar-centric instrumental progressive rock you will certainly enjoy this fine CD!
