Anyone rating this album a 4 is seriously tight at marking. You could take any two seconds of material on this ablum and study the complex arpeggios packed in for hours. The number of notes played must average 30 per second.
If you want to hear a guitarist who had an esoteric skill to play brilliantly, get this.
--JASON BECKER IS A GUITAR GOD--(although he would never admit to it of course).

jason becker ,if yr a fan of shred guitar was a extremely talented guitarist from the 80,s.
and this was his solo album ,he was in the band with marty friedman called cacophony ( try speed metal symphony)
this cd is brilliant and one of the best guitar albums of the 80,s and possibly ever.
his playing is very skillful and in the case of air(brilliant track) emotional. check the start and finish of the song ,the fingerpicking is absolutely amazing
altitudes is excellent well brilliant really and the other tracks are just as good and showcases a brilliant guitarist at such a young age ,i dont even think malmsteen or angelo would have been this good at this age.
amazing guitar album from the 80,s BUY IT

This is a 5 star album, no question! Becker had gained amazing abilities on guitar before he was out of school, then teamed up with Marty Friedman for a while to form Cacophony... so once he'd reached this point, he had truly mastered the guitar and he shows it. With tracks like Altitudes, Perpetual Burn, Air, Eleven Blue Egyptians, Dweller In The Cellar, this album is worth every penny!

Wow. Simply stunning album from (at the time) a young musician with immense talent. The sheer scale of maturity and technique in Becker's compositions is outstanding. Stand out tracks:-

Altitudes
Perpetual Burn
Mabel's Fatal Fable
Air
Dweller In The Cellar
Opus Pocus

If you appreciate guitar technique, talent and music in general then this album is essential.

Best album by the greatest guitarrist ever: Jason Becker. The album produced when he was 17 is a "must have" to all the guitarrists.
The product quality is excellent. One of the best choices that i ever made. Can't wait to buy "Perspective"!

The all time best electric guitar based instrumental album! Truly superb!! Still one of my all time favourites since 1988! J Counsell.

With influences from Blues (including a duet with Marty Friedman of Megadeth) and from such effective sources as Baroque and Syrian, this is the extreme form of fretboard delight - but although powerful, it is never shabby or youthfully arrogant. Surprisingly enough, because Mr. Becker was a mere 17 on recording this album. Despite the very dated album cover, this will always be part of the hardy perennials of my collection.

If you are a fan of great guitar and musicianship this CD is a must. Jason Becker is a master on the guitar. I can't recommend the Perpetual Burn CD highly enough. Every music fan should have this.
