||The Violin Virtuoso|
Jean Luc is one of the finest violinists in the world, with a humble recognition. At 14 he played with the Paris Philihamonic, at 17 with Zappa and then Elton John. No one has been able to replicate his original scores of music, as is evident on Civilized Evil. It is one of his finest albums, next to Cosmic Messenger and a few other earlier albums. If you love the violin and Jazz you'll be enormored by Jean Luc Ponty!!

||3rd best CD of JLP! Great Buy!!|
Pretty much a more rocky synth driven CD, but it's real good. My choices: Cosmic Messenger #1, Imaginary Voyage #2, Civilized Evil #3, Engimatic Oceans #4, toss up w/Aurora which is more traditional, and Imaginary Voyage which songs run into each other more like Genesis/Yes style. JLP is great almost any CD you can pick up!

||Top Notch New Fusion without the Ego!|
I have been a fan of Mr. Ponty since the early 80s after seeing the video for "Individual Choice" on Nightflight. Never a traditional violinist to sucumb to to the dire sterile conservatory styles of violin aesthetics Ponty shines on this cd. Id give it 4.5 out of 5. This is Pontys last really good neo fusion cd before he went a lot more solo in terms of composing and recording i.e. Individual Choice etc was him and a Prohet synth. What makes Civilized a great cd is the strong melodic hooks, great basslines, killer ARP solos and electric violin shreading. Not as 70s sounding as the Imaginary Voyage or Enigmatic Ocean. Its a very cohesive cd and there are no epic tracks here like earlier material. Id say its closer to Cosmic Voyager as far as musical content and Joaquin Lievano plays some of his best solos on this one. BTW Ponty was never about flash or ego , I know I meet him recently in WA and hes a real genuine musician!
