Albenrezension

By 1996, guitar solo-heavy instrumental albums were looked down upon by the majority of rock fans — as many had moved on to focusing on artists who put the importance of songwriting over shredding. However, you have to give Tony MacAlpine credit — he didn't stray too far from his prior musical path on his solo release that year, Violent Machine. Featuring plenty of MacAlpine's six-string heroics, Violent Machine easily could have been released in 1989, and probably would have done battle with Flying in a Blue Dream in Guitar World magazine's year-end poll — as evidenced by such selections as the album-opening title track, plus "Shoe Shine Cyber Boy" and "Mr. Destructive."

With Violent Machine, MacAlpine proved once and for all that he was sticking to his stylistic guns.
