Among my favorite songs on the album are "Wendell's Place," which features a great melody and spooky bridge, the haunting ballad "Mercy," and the dark "Alphabet City" which refers back to past demons. Though Chasing the Sun is an obscure jem, I put it as one of the best guitar albums ever made.
This is the marquee demo of the perhaps the most complete player the instrument has had. As a fusion album it is very solid, though not definitive. Many of the compositions foreshadow the Ohm project.
It's not strictly prog, but certainly has sensibilities that will appeal to any prog fan. Highly recommended. Over the last few years, I have become an enormous fan of Chris Poland. His playing combines some of the best elements of rock and fusion guitar into a unique sound that has appeal to a wide audience. For the most part, his talent is unfortunately recognized only by more diehard fans of the guitar.
After being kicked out of his high profile gig in Megadeth, Poland emerged from rehab just at the peak of the era of shred guitar led by Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, and legions of imitators on the Shrapnel label.
Other producers were looking for talent, and in Poland was tapped by Enigma to produce a shred album. The result was Return to Metalopolis, heavily advertised in the guitar mags but not anywhere else. Numerous young pickers grabbed this album expecting a new flavor of the month fret burner. Instead, they got one of the few albums from that glut of cassette tapes that has stood the test of time. Poland had been a guitar wunderkind locally long before Yngwie hit. He cut his teeth on the 70's fusion shredders of Holdsworth, McLaughlin, and DiMeola, and unlike the rest of the neo-classical shredders, his playing was a true combo of metal and jazz fusion.
What appealed to most metal heads at the time was the fact that Poland could actually play and write good metal rhythm guitar. Sadly this album is really the last we hear of Poland's metal riff writing. Metalopolis features towering spires of buildings, along with an artificial plateau that rises on top of one of these pillars of concrete, actually featuring grass — something that stands in stark contrast to the surrounding metal jungle.
