4 stars Joop Wolter's latest album to date is from 2011 and is named False poetry. Well, this album kick ass big time, by far his best work and one of the best instrumental prog metal/jazz fsuion album I've ever heared in last years. Here he manage to incorporate a blend of speedy shredding guitar passages with jazz fusion elements, the result is impressive. Besides his solo career Joop was part of prog metal band Arabesque, he has colaborations with Vivien Lalu on his first solo album and with Shadrane, on each project he did a marvelous work. Here on False poetry I can say easy that is his the best work he ever done so far. The passages are so well played and with such tight musicicnship that is hard for me not to praise this release. Just listen to the opening track Sponge, the guitar chops are quite top notch, what a piece, a prog metal feast with jazz fusion elements thrown in. Another highlight are for sure Ozric Dream, a very comlicated prog fusion piece with all the ingredients to be among the best in this realm and finaly but not least Universal Doubt, that show how versatile is Joop Wolters on guitar. Overall , this is pure delight to my ears, complex, but yet melodic, full of prog arrangements and jazz fusion delights. 4.5 stars to me a fine top notch album. recommended one of the best of the genre.
