Getting board of this style, same production with add lib guitar playing.
Lets hope Mike's new project has more balls.

I agree. I am a big fan of his "historical" stuff, but this is so lame.. it is just nothing to me.

I don't think the York&Mike track is so bad ("Islanders"), it has some kind of atmosphere.

But what exactly is Mike doing on this track? Is it only me, or does he play independently of the beat? His guitars appear rather randomly, drops in and out without any emphasis on anything particular. Just "sounds".

Out of sync. (Which is something I have noticed that he started to do in the middle of 90s. First, live; then even in the studio. Worst example being "Guitars", where the playing is amazingly sloppy for a hero such as M).

And, all these high-pitch notes on the guitar... Sorry Mike, I don't like it. Where is the aggressive trademark from the 70s/80s .. god, how I miss that kind of playing from M.
