Next review: » Yngwie Malmsteen - Alchemy
Released: 2000, Spitfire Records Master Series
Reviewer: Keith McDonald
The legendary guitar God, who for some time, never saw any of his studio albums see the light of day here in the States, sees a shit-load of his albums released in time for the Christmas rush. Nothing new here though, just straight ahead great guitar work that only Yngwie can deliver. Tracks like Seventh Sign, Voodoo, Facing The Animal and Brothers prove that Yngwie has staying power, which most artists, even though great at one time, sorely lack. Most people would quick to grab the Best of compilation instead of this package, but fans would be missing out on some great material. (ed note: fans who are in their right mind already own most all this anyway :-) !!!!!) The Double Live disc is great, and what better to hear the master deliver his hits than live and in your face. The production is great, the musicianship is over the top and the overall packaging makes this series a must for all die-hard fans that might had to spend on import prices. Good move by Spitfire to get these albums here.
