5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable First Album,
This may not have the production of his later albums, but this is still one of Satriani most inventive, and hey the recording was paid using his credit card! It has some of his best pieces, often using more guitar layers to combine melodies than the later albums.
As one of the first guitar ‘god’ albums, it a must for any one who considers themselves a fan of guitar music.


5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning debut, still vibrant and innovative 22 years on…,
Joe`s self-financed 1986 debut contains at least two of my favourite Joe songs. “”Memories”” (which is fully extended to eight minutes on “”Dreaming #11) and “”Driving at Night”” are so perfect; not only does the music perfectly evocate the titles, but the solos and structure are strikingly original. The feel of these two songs illustrates why you don`t need a vocalist!

So, I`m never tired of these songs; thankfully my fiancee agrees that Joe is special as I haven`t listened to much else this year yet, and can`t wait to see the master at the stunning Birmingham Symphony Hall in May.

Back to this tape- the opener and title track showcases all the ability and invention that still delights today, “”Rubina”” is a lovely ballad dedicated to his wife; “”Brother John”” is clever and classy, and “”The Enigmatic”” prefaces “”Flying In A Blue Dream””`s “”Strange””, and “”Time Machine””`s “”Crazy””.

The album winds up with crowd favourite “”Hordes of Locusts””, with it`s biblical theme, and biblical power; “”New Day”” – another personal favourite, and the majestic “”The Headless Horseman””, too short but great fun.

Great start to Joe`s career. It may have been bettered in terms of production and sheer inventiveness, but for impact and originality it`s as good a debut that exists.
