Passion And Warfare
2.  Passion And Warfare by Steve Vai

Band of Gypsys
4.  Band of Gypsys by Jimi Hendrix

Surfing With The Alien
6.  Surfing With The Alien by Joe Satriani

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Sonic Temple
7.  Sonic Temple by The Cult

The Wall
9.  The Wall by Pink Floyd

And Justice For All
10.  And Justice For All by Metallica

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (115 customer reviews)

Truth
11.  Truth by Jeff Beck
