Sound — 10
This is another great CD from Joe Satriani! Every note he plays just sounds perfect. He gets a great sound with the Peavy JSX amplifires and JS Ibanez guitars he plays. This album is a lot slower than some of his other stuff. It has a very relaxing sound to it. Not every song is slow. There is still a lot of stuff kind of like the older albums. Like his other stuff the album has different kinds material on it. He doesn't just play the same kind of thing over and over again like some other virtuoso guitarists. The drums and bass is as usual very good and flows with the music. One of the songs that stands out from the rest is the song crowd chant. What he does is he plays a short, 5 or 6 second guitar run, and then you hear a crowd chanting or singing what he just played. It is probably one of the best songs on the album.

There are no lyrics on this album. It is just pure guitar.
Overall Impression — 10
This album is very different from all the rest of the albums he has released. My two favorite songs are probably Super Colossal and Crowd Chant. I am a die-hard Joe Satriani fan and have probably all of his CD's including the G3 stuff. I would suggest this album to any fan of Joe Satriani, cool guitar, or who just wants something different. So just go buy this CD right now!
