The Guitar Gods / Re: Yngwie Malmsteen

Great guitarist, but a piss-poor songwriter. Terrible producer as well.


Although I have his first four albums (Rising Force through Odyssey) and saw him twice in the 80s, I have to say that's more than enough for me when it comes to Yngwie.


In retrospect, time really hasn't been kind to most of his music in my opinion. Yes, I still appreciate those aforementioned albums to a point.


BUT, the songs take an obvious back seat to the guitar, which ultimately dates the material in a negative way.


Be that as it may, I'll extend some courtesy to the Odyssey album due to Joe Lynn's Turner's contributions. Three out of five stars.  :-\

I can dig man. I'm surprised we've stuck it out this long. Thanks NJF for keeping this goofy thing going for as long as you have. We've had some good times.

Any chance this place can simply be locked and retained in a "viewable only" kind of mode? Or is that just more unnecessary costs?



I disagree (yet respect) NJ's decision on this. However, YES,  I agree Rock about keeping it in a "view only" mode if it's feasible.  8)


How did I know you'd disagree  ;D You can always take the site over, like I did from RTM and keep the place rolling.


I accept the offer NJ, and thank you for passing the torch to me. Now let's see how long it stays lit!  ;D

Ummm....not quite yet Rock! There's still a place for this "goofy thing" in the online world... for a little while anyway ( :D )!

I believe they still have 1 or 2 albums for Century Media.  After the first (or was it second) album, they got a multi record deal from CM.  I'll try to find the details.

I'm curious what kind of album deal Queensryche got with Century Media. I wonder if they got a regular 3-album deal and now they have to get a new one. Maybe they'd go with Rat Pack Records like Todd?

I think this release is definitive going to have some heavier tunes, but I think you'll also have some "lighter" stuff, for lack of a better description.   In other words, something for everyone.   ;)

I like both, so that is what I'm hoping for, a nice mix. Kind of like how the last three Queensryche albums have been balanced. I'm cool with the heavy tracks being a bit heavier on his album but I still want some of the more melodic stuff mixed in as well. Hope he gets it released by years end.

 Everybody is working on new material now and many bands are releasing new music or are well on their way to doing so, hopefully Queensryche will follow suit and have the next album out in 2021  8)
