No Boundaries CD - release date 1995 by M.A.C.E. Records
This is Michael Angelo Batio’s first solo CD and has been heralded as one of the top 10 instrumental guitar CD's of the '90's. Released in 1995 this disc "hit the metal charts" and has been sold all over the world.
Here is a review of the CD written by Kevin Prowse-
This instrumental offering is definitely one of the best of the 90's. He starts off with a guitar solo which begins with great sweep arpeggios and furious displays of speed picking. The album is a diverse collection of musical styles ranging from rock, metal, blues, neoclassical and funk. This is an album I can listen to straight through. If I had to pick favorites, they would be "Science Fiction", "Rain Forest" and the title track "No Boundaries". These songs exhibit a mastery of various lead techniques like speed picking, string skipping, arpeggios and cross string tapping. He is one of the cleanest guitarists ever and a big influence on my style. Great album that is a definite must buy!
