It really deserves 6 stars!,
This review is from: The Extremist (Audio CD)
This was the first album by Satch I heard. I also got the chance to go to see him on his "The Extremist" tour in Sheffield. Not only can he make the sounds he does, but he seems to do it with little visible effort! The title track just about sums up the skill Satriani has, yet not being the one and only track that "makes" the album. I think that he has moved on in several directions since this album, but on his "Live in San Francisco" album he does bring back some of his older works (on which none of the flare is lost!). I recommmend Strange Beautiful Music and Engines of Creation (some of his most recent work) both of which show excellent technique, without being over the top.
Buy this album if you know what good music is!
