To keep it to the point then – this is a fabulous blues rock album delivered by a crack band and replete with stunning solos.
...for those who appreciate dazzling playing, heavy riffs and short, sharp blasts of melodic metal, then Rene Benton is a must.

For anyone with an eclectic taste in music and an admiration for exquisite guitar work, ‘strangers’ is a surprising and endlessly inventive record that you’ll want to keep coming back to.
‘Vortex’ is a pleasure to listen to; a jazzy, endlessly entertaining record that cements Neal’s reputation as one of the planet’s finest guitar players – well worth checking out.
This is one of the best CDs I have reviewed for SonicAbuse so far. Metal Family is a classic heavy metal album. Really enjoyable and highly recommended.
Overall, ‘The leaving’ is an intelligent, imaginative, beautifully packaged piece of music and whilst it is surely not for everyone, for those who revere passion and integrity as key in the process of making music, it is an absolute must.
A remarkable souvenir of a remarkable evening. Superb.
