5.0 out of 5 stars The cream of guitar playing
Quite simply astonishing. Satriani proves that he is comfortable in almost any popular guitar style known to man with an album that contains hints of metal (extremist and war), classical guitar (tears in the rain), funk (why), and 60's accoustic strum-alongs (Rubina's blue sky happiness).
Aside from satriani's obvious talent as a musician there is the fact that none...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not extreme enough
If like me,you are in a constant search for really outstanding, beautiful, melodic tunes then this album will come close, as Why, Cryin are the best music i have ever heard. Also Blue Sky Happiness is good too.

Overly flash show off playing from joe satriani. speed does not make a good guitarist, he is cheesy, clichéd, over the top, showy and annoying. Summer song is one of the worst songs Ive ever heard in my life, self indulgent rubbish

1.0 out of 5 stars Scum Epitomised, 10 July 2004

This review is from: Extremist (Audio CD)
As soon as the album kicked off, i was cringing, with the ridiculously over-the-top style. I am no stranger to Joe Satriani and his eccentric music, as he has covered, and ruined, some of my favourite songs. Half way through the album, the pinch harmonics got too much for me, and i had to take a half-hour break before exposing myself to the remainder of the album. I would personally stick to rock with a meaning, rather than endless bars of tapping, and i would say that this album is only for mulleteers and those stuck in the 80s who don't want to think or analyse what they are listening to.
