Album Review

Few "guitar shredders" of the late '80s were able to cross over into the upper reaches of the pop charts, but Joe Satriani proved to be an exception to the rule.

If you're a newcomer and are looking for a finely balanced set of highlights from throughout Satriani's career, Electric Joe Satriani is definitely the way to go. Like his pal Steve Vai, Satch could shred with the best of them, but always put the importance of songwriting before simply just blasting out a flurry of notes. Satriani's early work remains his best, including such uptempo air guitar classics as "Satch Boogie" and "Summer Song," as well as the gorgeous ballad "Always With Me, Always With You." But other highlights abound as well, including "Surfing With the Alien," "The Mystical Potato Head Groove Thing," "Devil's Slide," "Starry Night," and "Cool #9."

Electric Joe Satriani: An Anthology includes all the faves you'd expect.

More than a hero, Satriani was a mentor, setting an example of what could be done with the instrument and also serving as a teacher to such luminaries as Kirk Hammett, Charlie Hunter, Primus' Larry LaLonde, and Steve Vai. This alone makes Satriani a significant figure in the history of rock guitar, but when he launched a career as a recording artist in 1986, he performed the rare...
