4.0 out of 5 stars He keeps getting better... 20 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Documents part of the evolution of this amazing musician. Ulrich's tasteful choice of notes is something I've come to expect from him!
This guy's playing speaks to me, and I'd be giving him four stars were it not for the use of vocals throughout much of this.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Finest "Neo-Classical" Guitar Efforts 29 Oct 2001
By Patrick Teasley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The title of this review refers primarily to Uli's "Prologue to Symphonic Legends", one of the three CDs in this collection. The set also includes Uli's first two Electric Sun Albums from '79 and '80. The Electric Sun recordings definitely have bright spots - Uli's awesome and crafty guitar solos which are brilliant compositions in themselves, his Hendrixisms, and his beautiful Strat tone. Unfortunately, they also have rough spots - the production, the vocals (Uli is a great player but an awful singer who makes music sometimes sound like karaoke - a great band backing up an ameteur vocalist, but Uli can be forgiven since his playing is so stellar, his vocals don't matter), and in my opinion, inconsistent songwriting. In spite of weaknesses, they are great to listen to for electric guitar fans and offer an education on where certain developments in rock guitar sprang from during the eighties.
The best part of this collection is the Prologue, which unlike most other "neo-classical" efforts, is mainly orchestral music with Uli interjecting beautiful, violin-like guitar solos on his six octave guitar. The opening piece is a familiar Puccini piece which Uli rewrote the lyrics for. His solo is breathtaking. His tone and use of the wah are about is perfect as it gets for this genre. The other pieces are Uli's own compositions and reveal him to be among the foremost composers whose primary instrument is electric guitar. The cadenza in "Pegasus" is the most perfect distorted electric guitar solo I have ever heard and it alone is worth the price of this entire 3 CD collection. Uli not only plays the right notes for classical pieces, but has the right feel - the right rubato. That is something lacking amongst most electric players who attempt classical pieces. The drawback to "Prologue" is that the orchestration is synthesized, but the timbre isn't too thin in spite of this. There is also a nice bonus after the "Prologue" of Uli's incredible piano compositions. And best of all...Uli doesn't sing!
Any fans of virtuoso electric guitar music who have not yet heard Uli or who only know him from his early Scorpion days, must check him out. In my opinion, he makes Yngwie sound like a kindergartner - and I speak as an Yngwie fan!

3.0 out of 5 stars From Rock to Classical 29 Feb 2000
By Bob Blahunka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first two discs were exactly what I expected of Uli, very Scorpionslike. If you like songs like Fly To The Rainbow,Evening Wind and Polar Nights then, you will like these two discs. The vocals are a little week especially on the Fire Wind disc. Disc three is different. If you like classical music you should enjoy this disc, if not you won't. It's that simple. The last song "AQUILA SUITE" is a piano composition, I think it is a very good change of pace. Not that I don't enjoy blisstering guitar work because I do, it's just that in my advacing years I am becoming a more rounded music fan (I will not ever become a top 40 fan). For the money this is a very wise purchase, three for the price of one. Buy this set, reminisce about days gone past and enjoy some good classical music with your favorite beverage or herb.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Bargain! 17 Jun 2000
By Steven J Detwiler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, Uli Roth started out copying Jimi Hendrix. This compilation shows what he was trying to do when he left the Scorpions (and both parties went very separate directions). Yes, Uli's voice (like Jimi's) is nothing extraordinary (the last disc has classically-trained singers, not Uli). But his guitar melodies are straight from Heaven. Uli took himself from a Hendrix follower, to an innovator himself, and his work has taken the guitar to places that I know even Jimi would be amazed, and pleased. The last disc and the new direction is very much symphonic rock opera, but the backbone of all Uli's work is beautiful solos. Not wanking like Yngwie, but rather ethereal music. Uli has a sound like no one else, and his custom 7 string guitar is more like a violin (here you see the classsical direction). This collection is a must for guitar fans. Beyond that, I am not sure I'd recommend it. But if you are prone to buying Steve Vai, Yngwie, Satriani, Eric Johnson, Santana, or any of these guys...They know and admire Uli. Buy this and see why.
3.0 out of 5 stars The Best & Worst of Uli Jon Roth 5 Jan 2013
By John K. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Three disc set: (1) Electric Sun - Earthquake; (2) Electric Sun - Fire Wind; (3) Prologue to the Symphonic Legends - Sky of Avalon.

The first disc is the best by far -- Roth pays homage to Hendrix with a fiery set of songs with excellent rhythm & chordal sequences and great solos. Much has been said about the shortcomings of Roth as a vocalist, and I won't pile on here -- the vocals on Earthquake are tolerable. Especially because the music is awesome, and Roth keeps the vocal exercises to a minimum.

The same can't be said for Fire Wind -- here, Roth's vocal tonalities and range resemble that of bad Japanese karaoke. It's unfortunate, because there is some good playing, but Roth's insistence on singing way too much reduces this CD to well below par. I gave it repeated listens, but just couldn't dig it.

The third disc reflects Roth's excursion into classical styled music adapted to modern sensibilities -- very little blistering guitar work to be found here, but Roth smartly turns vocal duties over to the professionals. Very ethereal sounding for those interested in such things - ok, but not my cup of tea.

My recommendation for those who like the Hendrix-influenced Roth is to buy all 5 Scorpions CDs where Roth plays - Fly to the Rainbow, In Trance, Virgin Killer, Taken By Force, and the live Tokyo Tapes - he really shines on these releases as the forebearer of neo-classical rock of the future. Then, buy Electric Sun's Earthquake and Transcendental Sky Guitar Vols. 1 and 2 -- the latter is outstanding, particular disc 2 for those wanting Roth to really rock. Later works such as Beyond the Astral Skies, Under a Dark Sun, and Metamorphosis are recommended for those who want more classically-influenced fret gymnastics by the master of the Sky Guitar!

Roth is a legend, but his solo material is spotty. Choose wisely.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you like Uli 8 Mar 2002
By Johnny Nuyens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The music was great! If you are in it for Uli's amazing fretwork, you won't be disappointed. The only problem is that Uli also does all the vocals. If you have heard Uli sing then you know what I am talking about. His vocals are one of two things keeping my rating from being 5 stars. The other is the 3rd CD. Uli's attempt at Opera/Symphony. I haven't given the whole thing a chance, but it was pretty weird for an Uli fan who wants to hear him SHRED!!! If you are a die-hard Uli fan you should have this set; however, it would not be my choice if I was trying to make a true believer out of someone new to his genius.
