The nine numbers on the current album represent a versatile range of different styles and moods. The opening track 'Achtung, Fertig, Los!' may be taken literally and turns out to be a driving, bluesy number with a pulsating groove. The quiet 'Michael Schenker Jr.' is dedicated to the guitarist's son. The centrepiece of the recording is the three-part title track with its various bizarre subtitles that indicate Schenker's sense of humour. Part I is called 'Three Fish Dancing', a playful number with a Spanish flair, a discreet flamenco part in the middle and a romantic guitar outro. Part II (subtitle: 'Aardvark In A VW Smoking Cigar') is based on a powerful lick, quoting a singing solo guitar as well as two-part vocals reminiscent of Wishbone Ash, and is spiced up with, as becomes its rather peculiar title, psychedelic sound gimmicks. Part III ('Old Man With Sheep On Mars') kicks off with a strong hookline, turns into an almost reggae based guitar rhythm and then develops into a thumping rock number, followed by wonderful melodies, which impress with the successful use of a Wah Wah pedal vividness and depth.

This is OK but a little abstract in places. Dreams and Expressions really flows and is much better in my opinion so get that one instead (or before this if you're gonna collect all his work!)

Michael has released one of the best solo albums I've ever heard!! Guitar playing is immaculate throughout. Incredible riffs and solos, backed by some VERY solid drumming by Aynsley Dunbar. Instrumental albums can be a bit self-indulgent; this is not!! Imagine Joe Satriani without the whammy bar; you've got it!!

I've been waiting for this for a long time 16 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been waiting for Michael Schenker to release an electric instrumental album for a long time. I really enjoy listening to this album, although it took a few listens to get to that point. Now I find myself putting it in the CD player all the time.
The main reason it took a bit of getting used to is that his classic tone seems to be lost a bit in this recording. It doesn't sound like they are recording him through Marshall stacks anymore, rather some sort of signal processing amp simulator, not to mention what tone is probably lost in the digital recording. There is a lot to be said for analog recording, especially when it comes to hard rock.
I lost touch with his music after Built to Destroy because I thought the material was getting a bit too cheesy (especially the McCauley Schenker stuff). However I picked up Thank You and was immediately interested in this release. I understand he is releasing another electric instrumental album within the year, as well as an album with UFO (I hope this is true).
I agree with a previous reviewer in that this album almost sounds like a Joe Satriani album at times. This is strange because I don't associate the two players. I think this association goes back in part to my comments about the guitar tone quality. I think Satriani's tone is a result of a lot of signal processing.
This album not only demonstrates that Michael Schenker is a great guitar player, but that he is a great composer. This is especially exemplified from track three (Three Fish Dancing) through track seven (Old Man With Sheep On Mars). That section of the album is a composition to me, not a group of songs. His great sense of melody is also represented throughout the record.
The reasons I only give it four stars are the few weak songs (tracks one and two come to mind) and the guitar tone. Otherwise, I definitely recommend this album for Michael Schenker fans, aspiring guitar players and fans of good writing in general.

Electric symphony 21 April 2000
By Philip A. Floyd - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I listened to this cd with some apprehension at first, I have been a Schenkerista since 1975(UFO/Force it),and I sometimes expect too much from my guitar hero. One of the reasons I enjoy his playing is that he always sounds very melodic and in control. This is true on his accoustic as well as electric guitar work. In fact he blends the two together at will, alternating soothing and blistering sounds. Others do it also but never as seemlessly as MS. On this cd he takes that ability and pushes it over the top with song composition that is the envy of classical composers. Songs that move the listener along through not only his imagination, but theirs as well. Tracks 1&2 set the pace with crisp clean melodies that get your attention and then opening up your mind for the adventure to begin. Tracks 3-6 are what I call "electric symphony". Classical music written and performed by a modern master of the rock guitar. "Three fish dancing" is quite a piece of work all its own, it drifts in and out captivating and hypnotizing the listner with crafty musical movements. When it was over I was amazed that it was 14 minutes long! It sure doesn't seem like it while you are mesmerized trying to guess where MS is taking you next. He also demonstrates his love for his family with "Michael Schenker jr, & I want to be with you". Its rare that a performer these days can feel comfortable enough with his craft to include personal feelings in thier art. Tracks 7&8 are simply stunning pieces of work. "Old man with sheep on mars" is where MS shows off. It is the song on this cd that makes you stand up and play the air guitar! Not to mention hit the repeat on the remote a few times. "At the end of the day" is my personal favorite on this cd. It is all MS. No drums, no bass. Accoustic rythym, and tastefully overdubbed lead guitar melodies that left me nodding my head in approval. Even some special wolf howling sounds from the axe in the intro & as the song drifts off to add to the sunset theme of this amazing track. This cd could have ended right there and I would have been blown away and completely satisfied! But not so fast. "Hand in hand" is the ending surprise. I wont describe this track, buy the cd and listen for yourself how MS decides to end his "Electric Symphony". All in all a great work of music. I am sure that it wont get airplay or mass approval, It is far to complicated and interesting. Lets be honest, the average person does not want to relax and analyze music. This is for true afficionados of rock as art. Buy it and enjoy your new toy!

A true guitar superstar 3 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Have you ever noticed how, the more talent a rock player has, the more obscure he is? The difference between Michael Schenker and say, Paul Gilbert or John Petrucci or even Steve Vai is that Schenker can write songs. You know, nice melodies to go with those unbelievable solos. And on this album there are no annoying vocals with teenage lyrics. Just Michael--and he can solo endlessly, over just a few chords, and its brilliant! Melodicly, its a bit like Boston meets Frank Marino playing World Antheum with maybe a dash of Kansas. Is he in a league with Joe Satriani or Eric Johnson? You bet.

Worth the wait and more! 11 Mar. 2000
By MICHAEL J MURPHY - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After listening to this CD, I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders. After the lack of melody and soloing shown on the Unforgiven record, I was beginning to wonder about Michael's direction. Not to worry. Schenker has always written excellent instrumentals, and this CD really shows what he can do. The tunes feature a wide variety of tones, moods, and emotions. The production is nice and clean,too, not bottom-heavy and muted like the Unforgiven was. Yeah, all the classic riffs and licks are there, but I noticed that some new directions are there, too. The last tune is really cool and features some sounds that I never thought would be associated with Michael Schenker. The soloing shows why Michael blows away Malmsteen, Moore, Macalpine and other similiar players. His technical prowess is ably demonstrated, but never overwhelms the songs or melodies with mindless streams of 128th notes or straight up and down scales. Other shredders take note! All in all, this is the CD that myself and other guitarists have always wanted him to put out. Essential for fans of melodic and purist electric guitar playing.

An electric insrumental at last! 27 May 2000
By John Valvano - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Michael Schenker has been one of my guitar heroes since I was a teen. Having seen him with UFO during their Obsession tour was a memorable experience. I had lost touch with his work over the last few years because his work with Mcauly/Schenker was a bore and was beneath his talent. This instrumental is awesome. It shows his greatness as guitar player and a composer. I can only hope this is the beginning of new era for Michael. He should never do another vocal album unless it is with UFO. His talent as a guitar player and composer have never been showcased outside of UFO on a vocal album. I love listening to this album, it is what I have been waiting 20 years to hear from Michael. Forget vocal music Michael, compose great guitar albums whether it be acoustic or electric. Just play guitar!
