He's got some soundclips and videos on his site: http://www.satriani.com/2004/discography/Super_Colossal/

I wouldn't say its his best album, its decent but there are only 2 or 3 songs that I really like off it.

Actually his worst cd. I mean musical it's good, but not very much special on there.

The cd is not bad, but bad compared to the rest, though it's better soundwise then let's say surfing with the alien with his over-drenched-on-chorus sound on that 1 :peace:

Yeah, he had terrible tone back then.


The only good songs on there are It's So Good, Ten Words, A Cool New Way, and Theme For a Strange World. That's less than half of the album.

yeah true but we don't say the music sucks we say that it isn't special, i mean if you get the same album as 5 years ago you'd expect some more off it

I haven't heard it all yet but I'd agree with people who say it's not his best but it's still very good, I prefer Surfing With The Alien, The Extremist and Crystal Planet personally but this album also has some great sounds.

It's nice but I was hoping for more metal :(

Still hoping he'll do another Attack or Crystal Planet someday!

Ten Words is lovely. I like It's So Good aswell - that's about it though, bit of a dissapointment.

Made of Tears is my favorite song on the album, surprised noone else seems to like it.

personally, redshift riders is my favorite, though super colossal has a pretty good solo.

I found it to be pretty boring. It's like there's something missing, theres no energy in it for me.

I like it. It's the only Satch album I own, so it's going up from here - I'm buying the Extremist next. :)

"Cool new way" is amazing, the album is great, and I'm gonna see him friday can't wait!

I think it's one of his best CDs, sur it's not Surfing with the Alien, but it's better than Crystal Planet

Crystal Planet > Surfing with the Alien IMO
at least musically


but Super Collosal is probably better than SwtA musically as Surfing With the Alian is really a "OMG ELECTRIC GUITAR!!!" type album (and in that aspect it kicks ass)


my favourites overall are Strange Beautiful Music and Is There Love in Space

I found it fairly good musically. Technically, it wasn't his most impressive album. I'm an amature guitarist, playing for about a year, and I can play Super Colossial. He doesn't do much impressive with it.

Surfing With The Alien, I can't come close to playing with it. All the tapping, temelo, and the speed he plays it with.

However, the album has merit, and it seems like hes moving in a new direction.

I saw him perform live in April, and he performed some of the stuff from Super Colossial, with the Super Colossial guitar that when he plays it, hes picking his nose ;). It was very very good. Even better live.
