OK, so here goes;
The first group of Yngwie fans got into him in the 80's when he was releasing masterpieces like Marching Out and Trilogy. They hung around through the more prissy Odyssey, bitchin' Live in Leningrad and straight ahead hard rock of Eclipse. They left the building after that...... These people have all they want in terms of an Yngwie Malmsteen collection though in truth should probably buy his 90's best of disc.
The second group of Yngwie fans have all his albums. Every darn last interchangeable one. And all the complations too. Now to be fair... I'm reviewing this disc and I only review things I own. So.... yeah, guilty as charged.
The third group of Yngwie fans are late arrivals. Post 80's shredders mainly - probably got into Alex Laiho or some other Scandinavian shredder or stumbled across his name in their fathers collection amongst all the Satriani albums. These guys aren't big fans but are curious. And probably just need The Yngwie Malmsteen collection which collates most of the best from the 80's and the 90's best of though in truth they would be wise to pick up the aforementioned Marching Out and Trilogy.
So where am I going with all this? Well - you know yourself. You know which group you belong to. So now you know whether to lay down your hard earned for this. Group One - you aren't reading this anyway, but are probably cranking Trilogy Suite Op.7 as we speak so you are excused. Group Two - awww come on guys - you know you are gonna buy it sometime so it might as well be now! And Group Three, move along kids, nothing to see here. Just a collection of instrumental tracks in the main. From what I've written above you can figure out what discs to get. Oh but I'd definitely pick up Angels of Love for something different to add to your collection.
I hated to write this but i think Yngwie needs to give it a rest and maybe try to do something new.It's a shame such a great guitarist who's contributed so much to the art has gotten so cliche and cant release something fresh.
He has absolutely mastered seed and every scale, mode, arpeggio and melodic ranting that exists, and while I agree if you're looking for a commercial hook like "Sweet Caroline" or not an intense fan of shred and theory you will indeed be seeking the nearest exit, the rest of us with sit (or stand) with jaw dropped, face plastered and doors blown off.
Got a classical feeling to a few of the songs.
Blitzkrieg is my favorite!
