  1. The Essential Steve Morse by Steve Morse ·
    One of the best instructional videos I saw. If you, simple mortal, wants to understand better about his genius style, buy it now!

  2. Are You Experienced? by Jimi Hendrix ·
    The best rock album of past century. Hendrix rules forever! There are no words to describe him, and there will never be.

  3. Images And Words by Dream Theater ·
    This is first DT record with James LaBrie on vocals, and, believe me, it makes a big difference. One of the things that I most like in this record is song structures. I believe since Yes nobody made progressive things like this. I truly believe...(more)

  4. Abigail by King Diamond ·
    Since he left Mercyful Fate, people didn't believed he'll follow a nice solo career. Just a Mistake. Continuing the success of his first album, Abigail has great tunes, like "Omens", "The Possession" and the classic "The Family Ghost". Powerful ...(more)

  5. Frank Gambale, Steve Smith & Stuart Hamn by Frank Gambale, Steve Smith & Stuart Hamn ·
    When I listened this, I thought: "it's impossible". This entire albumn seems like a big jamn session. Really. But, if you stop a minute to think, a jam with Frank Gambale, renowed guitar teacher, Stuart Hamn (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai) and Steve S...(more)

  6. Go Off!! by Cacophony ·
    Well, too much people say that "Shred" guitars are dead, etc, etc. But it's not about shred, it's about creativity and theory. Here you can find many ways of harmonizing melodies, lead voices, counterpoints and other classical things. Of course,...(more)

  7. Wired by Jeff Beck ·
    This one of best albums I ever heard. Jeff has a incredible melodic sense, it's not about playing "ups and downs scales". And he's very well accompained by Mr. Jan Hammer, who worked with John McLaughlin and the wonderful Mahavishnu Orchestra. S...(more)

  8. Rubber Soul by The Beatles ·
    Five stars is less to this wonderful album. I agree that it has paved the "Beatles way". Songs like "You won't see me" and "In my life" are one of the most beautiful songs written. The Beatles are the best balance between rock and pop. Simply un...(more)

  9. Southern Steel by Steve Morse ·
    Steve Morse is one of most complete players I've ever heard. Even in Dregs, Kansas, Solo or in Deep Purple he has a "Steve Morse way" to do things all right. I bought this album after I saw The Essentials instructional video. It's incredible the...(more)

  10. 1 by The Beatles ·
    It's just think about Beatles in wholenote that you appear Ant.. LOL, just kidding. I do agree that every song worth the price. My favorite are Penny Lane, all you need is Love, Can't buy me Love, Paperback writer and The Long And Widing Road.

  11. The Beatles (White Album) by The Beatles ·
    One of most progressive Beatles album, certainly. I like a lot, and I don't give a damm if it has a "Clapton" solo. And Helter Skelter is the most "metal" and "crunch" Beatles song. Perfect!!!

  12. The Extremist by Joe Satriani ·
    This was the first instrumental album I enjoyed. Satriani songs have too much passion, and they really don't need any lyrics. Listen to "Crying" and you'll know what I mean. For me, it's the most inspired moment from Joe. Other great moment is "...(more)

  13. Vapor Trails by Rush ·
    Simply awesome. This album shows that Neil Peart has finally went trhough his personnel tragedies. His lyrics are so passionate, in specially Ghost Rider, which is about himself. Geddy's voice is better than ever. I hope this album really repres...(more)

  14. Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence by Dream Theater ·
    In their most recent release, Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence, the band goes "against the tide", the phonographic market tide, 'cos the album is double-CD (it's a little expensive!) and the song-title has 42 minutes length!!! Even the old fans ...(more)
