Joe Satriani: Super Colossal
0

Sound — 8
The sound of the album is overall pretty soft. Theres not much in the terms of hard rock guitar, its more slower songs. The sound is good, but for Joe Satriani, lacks a lot of creativity. I think the only innovation and creativity he used was on the song 'Crowd Chant'. Overall the sound of the album is okay.

Lyrics — 10
There are no lyrics, but his guitar playing speaks for itself.

Overall Impression — 9
People who havnt hear any of Satch's music will enjoy this album, and in some cases, blown away. Those fans of Satch will compare this to 'Strange Beautiful Music' and 'Surfing With The Alien' will see that this album isn't as good. Though listening to the album through, without skipping around, offers a great experiece. I love the feel of the album, though it can be slow and generic at times. The only thing I didn't like was the absence of harder songs like Satch Boogie, Mind Storm, and Seven String. If it were stolen or lost, I might but it again.

    Jeff Campitelli plays the drums but Satch does all guitars basses and keyboards.

    Nope...he has a band. Many of the songs feature multi-tracking with Joe on several instruments, but he has his own band.
