All Music Guide - Phil Carter
Not of This Earth was the first studio release from guitar wizard Joe Satriani not counting the hard-to-find Joe Satriani EP. This all-instrumental album was making ripples in the guitar-playing community not long after it was released, and it's easy to see why: superior compositions, a signature style, a unique tone, and playing that's out of this world.

Satriani's fluid playing and wicked licks are enough to drop jaws and widen eyes. There isn't a weak track on this disc, even though the guitarist was still maturing when he released it.

    Fretboard show

    Around 1986, guitar fans became a bit curious when they heard about someone who had been giving lessons to Steve Vai ( at the time, Vai was best known for being a member of David Lee Roth´s band). This "someone" was Joe Satriani, and after listening to this record, many guitarists realized he was the best they´ve heard since Van Halen´s "Spanish Fly". This album feels very spontaneous and you can hear Satriani really having fun while recording it. There are no fillers to be heard, and he certainly demonstrates that instrumental music can be really tasteful. A great album.
