LISTENER FEEDBACK:

"Sounds like Jeff Beck on acid" - Fabrice Pieri

"Andee Blacksugar is on another planet." - D. A. Karkos

"Guaranteed to: rattle your brain/twist your ear drums in knots/make you feel like you've fallen into a gigantic kaleidoscope/make you feel like you're fleeing a futuristic city that's about to explode while riding on a magic carpet as you're being pursued by sexy shape-shifters in a space ship." - Teague Clements

"This reminds me of the first time I listened to Flex-Able from Steve Vai" - Chad Von Haden

"If you play guitar, this may be frustrating for you. This guy creates more top notch music than anyone I know!!" - Matt Farley

"Fusion, jazz, metal, how about just plain brilliant. Fasten your seat belts. Another can of whup ass from Andee Blacksugar." - Hank Dunne

"The Salvador Dali of guitar" - Jeff Campbell
