Album Review

An hour-long disc filled with musical explorations and compositions that defy belief, Flying in a Blue Dream is unquestionably Joe Satriani at his absolute best. Breaking his all-instrumental tradition for the first time, he croons on six of the disc's 18 tracks, including the weird "Strange"; and the bluesy, hard-rocking "Big Bad Moon"; and the driving "Can't Slow Down." Satriani's voice isn't extraordinary, but it fits extremely well with the music he creates, especially on the acoustic-tinged, uplifting "I Believe." It's his playing that's the really impressive thing here, though; his unique tone and complex song structures are enhanced by his signature playing style and the incredible array of effects and tricks he wrestles out of his instrument. The disc closes with the high-flying, misty piece "Into the Light," leaving behind a feeling of real wonder. Soaring, powerful, and triumphant, this recording deserves a place in everyone's collection.

One of His Best of All time

I always go back to this one. It was the Album that I used to drift off to, think with and have fun with. It is introspective, and covers all that Joe Satriani is as a musician in my very humble and un professional opinion. I can't say enough about it. It is the album that always has me coming back for his new stuff.

From the Reaper

This album/cd is one of my fav...I saw him in 90 peforming most of these songs at the Spokane Opera House.Thats in Washington state.If you want good Satriani I recomend this one for sure.And like the Itunes review said the first album that he sang on.Get it...

My favorite Satch album

This is an incredible album, start to finish, with the title track being one of his best ever songs. I could listen to it over and over a million times and still hear a new layer. Every song is Joe, pushing the limits, trying new things (such as singing, which works in this album), and giving the listener something new to behold. It's best listened to leaning back with eyes closed, amazed at the mastery. Or perhaps speeding down the interstate, moved by the energy. However you listen to it, you will be moved!

The 1980s were a golden age for guitar heroes but even six-string slingers need a hero of their own. Enter Joe Satriani. 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...
