Jason Becker: Perpetual Burn

Sound — 8
Ahhh, another shredding album for the ages. Let me just start by saying becker's tone is probably the coolest I've ever heard. All over this album there is sweeping string skipping lightning fast walk ups and walk downs and random whammy bar use (which some times is annoying) most of the songs on here I just love and theres like 2 I never listen to, 2 out of 8 isn't bad I think that comes out to about a 4 in sound

Lyrics — 8
N/A -- There's no lyrics and I don't know what to do about that so I'm giving these imaginary lyrics a 4.

Overall Impression — 10
This is one of my favorite albums. Jason Becker is insane. He's like Malmsteen times 2, and the appearences of Marty Friedman on a few songs just adds to the overall sweetness of this album. I'm a big fan of shred guitar and this is my second favorite shred cd so I think you should find it and buy it and then turn it on and let your head spin for 42 minutes of pure insanity.
