'Eric Johnson is notorious for his perfectionism, but the six-year wait between his breakthrough Ah! Via Musicom and it's follow-up Venus Isle seems a little extravagant, especially considering the resulting album. In six years, it could be assumed that an artist would undergo a number of different phases, exploring several different musical genres and textures. Johnson didn't spend his six years exploring - he spent them refining. Venus Isle reveals no new insights about the guitarist, it only offers a new spin on the territory Ah! Via Musicom covered... Johnson is a consummate guitarist, pulling out tones and licks from his instrument that no other musician can quite match. It is a joy to hear him play... There are the occasional jazzy grooves, a handful of blues, several fusion numbers, and a few stabs at prog rock - all of the things that distinguished the album's predecessor...
