from "Who says guitar rock is dead," by Jake TenPas, OSU Daily Barometer, 5/18/01:

"On their long-awaited new album, Dark Lit, local power trio Minus does much to negate the assertion that the classic rock of the '60s, '70s and '80s left the guitar without further avenues of exploration."

"Mark France coaxes tones both subtle and overt out of his customized Frankenstein of a guitar. He demonstrates in the process how much of the rock canon has been excluded over the years by rejecting the influences that progressive rock, fusion and the avant-garde sought to incorporate"

"This is music all-consuming in its beauty and power, and not to be missed either as studio product or live shenanigens."

Intelligent and powerful instrumentals.
Wow, a really good "jazz metal" album. Although I don't necessarily think it's fair to compare it to other artists/albums, it does have some similarities to the music of Regressive Aid, Blind Idiot God, and Trans Am: intelligent instrumental hard rock that concentrates on mood and theme development rather than pointless "show off" metal soloing. Recommended.
