    I Also Recommend:

    Joe Satriani continues to make great guitar rock.

    This cd continues Joe Satriani career of making great instrumental hard rock. His song ideas are always straight forward, but fun to listen to. His plays a little with more exotic sounds than on other cds. As always his tone and soloing are wonderful.

    If it's has to be good.

    Joe Satriani has always tried to do something different on each album that he puts out. The one thing that remains the same, however, is that he will blow you away with at least one song on each album. If you are a guitar player, you will never be disappointed with Joe Satriani. Just listen to Mind Storm and you will see what I mean. Just when you think that he cannot surpass himself, he does. He has a new 7-string which I heard him play live at the Oakdale Theatre in CT. He was unbelievable - can you imagine Satch with a 7-string guitar. It has to be heard (and seen) to be believed! On Strange Beautiful Music you will hear it.

    Fantastic album for everybody

    This is a great album. Satriani has always stood above the other crowd of guitar speed merchants because of his way to play interesting and emotional guitar passages, and not just a bunch of fast notes strung together. In this album he goes one step further, the harmonies and melodies and ideas are fantastic, and as always so is his technical ability. Sleep Walk made me cry it was so beautiful with the use of what sounds like a slide. There are strong hints of nostalga in this album, some points I even found myself reminded of classic film music from such films as James Bonds Moon Raker. Was this intentional or not, I don't know, buy the album and judge for yourself.
