Gorgeous instrumental melodic rock

I don't normally have much use for instrumental albums. I'm a vocals first kind of guy, so while I certainly admire guitar talents like Joe Satriani or Steve Vai, they're not artists I tend to get excited over. That's why I'm more than a little surprised at just how much I'm enjoying Full Circle, the debut CD from instrumental rock band Clintone.

Full Circle is at heart a melodic rock album, and a good one at that. It brings to mind Journey and some of Ten's less epic material. There are some seriously infectious melodies here. Perhaps the best quality of this album is that it never really seems like the guitarist is showing off, and you know how rare that is with this kind of music. The songs feel like honest to goodness SONGS, not just vehicles for flashy solos, and the album as a whole has a cohesive feel and emotion. I'd love to hear what the band would sound like with a great singer (someone like Jeff Scott Soto or Steve Augieri perhaps), but these songs don't need vocals to get their spirit and message across.

It goes without saying that Full Circle will appeal to fans of Satriani, Vai, Masi and other guitar heroes, but I can see this album reaching AOR/melodic rock fans as well. It hooked me right from the start.
