Yngwie Malmsteen: Rising Force

Sound — 10
This is probobly one of my favorite albums of all time. Yngwie bring neo-clasical guitar back with a meaning. The way he plays allows you to hear every note crisply unlike some other shreaders who only care about speed. I also have a dvd of him in a concert and it is one of the most amazing things i have ever seen.

You dont focus on the lyrics as much as the guitar thats the only downfall.

Overall Impression — 10
One of the best albums i have ever heard. Up there with all the Hendrix. Black star is a great song i highly recomend it. I would buy two the first ime justst incase i lost one. Then there would be no period where i didnt have it. The thing i have to love the most out of this cd would be the tallent that is portrayed. He is still young when he did this. And if you hear him now your mind will be blown away.
