Presence Customer Reviews
You can't listen to it in the background... Each song wakes you up and DEMANDS to be listened to! My goodness, some of the guitar playing left me breathless.
Restrained elegance with punches of fury sweep you away to the musical world Matt created
I've been enjoying this album immensely. I often compare your guitar playing to Dave Gilmour, but I can also hear a touch of Robert Fripp. The tougher-sounding tracks like 'Reign' & 'Perforate' have echoes of 'Red'-era King Crimson about them.
I've just listened to the entire thing with a cup of tea and some chocolate biscuits. You've excelled yourself, Matt. Brilliant work! It didn't need chocolate biscuits...
Presence transported me over mountains and valleys, over desert dunes and ocean waves, over lakes, rivers and through forest glades, to outer space and other worlds. Bravo! It’s stunning.
I feel like I’m in a lighthouse watching and listening to large rolling waves crash against the rocks, but I’m inside safe and sound.
Nice work! Lots of feels and a stack of emotion poured into this piece.
For lovers of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen etc., Matt's absolutely excelled himself.
