Chris is a great song writer. He is also an excellent guitarist.
This is a release that showcases extraordinary guitar playing - both technical and very emotive at times. However, the production is very dry and the guitar tone has no punch. These songs would really knock you out but there's just no power behind the guitar or the drums.
I would liken the overall sound to listening to a Savatage album from 1985. While Savatage is one of my favorite bands, I don't want to hear the same production values that existed 25 years ago. So, in conclusion, I award 4 stars for the content but this falls short of five stars due to the sound quality. Chris Caffery rocks,I definitely recommend this release, but I hope the production is better on future efforts.

another solid album from Chris Caffery,not so good as his first one 'Faces'but as i said a good album.Chris Caffery is not the best singer in the world,some times i think he wanna sound like his Savatage band member jon oliva and then he sound to forced.
If you like Chris Caffery's previous albums,you can buy this for sure.

Chris Caffery is the former Savatage current Trans Siberian orchestra guitarist. Although a competent songwriter and a top performer, I suppose most would agree he has been consistently overshadowed by the overwhelming talent of legendary lead guitarist and "Savatage" co founder Chris Oliva. Past the break up of "Savatage", Chris put forward his solo career; having followed his solo steps I felt that none of his previous albums really shined (when compared to "Savatage"), while the direction of "Pins & Needles" was quite an unpleasant surprise.
I always thought that Caffery had equal amounts of talent with the iconic Savatage members and somehow his latest album "House of Insanity" comes to prove that point. Here the guitar riffs are strong and well considered while the choruses kick in the most unexpected ways, definitely surprising the listener. In addition it has to be said that this is by far the most melodic Caffery album while the choruses are by far the biggest that Chris has written.

Through playing the album a good number of times one realizes that "House of Insanity" brings to front a much more relaxed and spontaneous Chris Caffery as the compositions flow naturally (quite an accomplishment for a progressive metal release) while his guitar parts are faster and more fluent than ever before.
Furthermore quite a few of these songs would have sounded great even on a new "Savatage" release as they unashamedly borrow the essence of the "Savatage" heritage.
More than a few great songs on this one: "Seasons Change", "I don't know", "The fleas", "Solitaire", and "I'm sorry". My only (slight) objection is in terms of production as the release would have probably benefited from a thicker sounding rhythm section.
