Album Review

From a guitar playing standpoint, Tony MacAlpine's 2002 release, Live Insanity, is a fitting album title — especially with all the sweep picking and other fretboard acrobatics that occur throughout this all-instrumental set. Recorded at the Roxy Theater in Hollywood, CA during 1997, MacAlpine (who also handles keyboard duties, as well) is joined by a rhythm section consisting of bassist Ricky Riccardo and drummer Mike Terrana. The result is a group of tracks that can be neatly categorized into two categories — a fusion of Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen (the album-opening "The Vision," "Rusalka") or selections that reflect Joe Satriani's gift of six-string phrasing ("The Sage," "Carolina Blue"). Fans of guitar shredding should enjoy Live Insanity, but to the average listener, it all starts to sound the same after a while.
