Album Review

It had been awhile since Tony MacAlpine released any new solo material when Master of Paradise came out, but the album isn't really that much of a departure from his prior work, except for the fact that for the first time, MacAlpine handles lead vocals in addition to guitar heroics. The results aren't always incredible, but MacAlpine generally gets the job done, solidly if unspectacularly. Still, that's a secondary weapon in his arsenal; the main focus is on his neo-classical, Yngwie Malmsteen-influenced guitar style, and deliver the fireworks he does. Fans of old-school hard rock guitar virtuosics should be quite pleased.

Overlooked Album

This is actually my favorite MacAlpine album after his first two solo records, it's too bad he hasnt sang on another album, hopefully one day he will again.

Great Album/MacAlpines only vocal performance

Love MacAlpines vocal performance, an added touch to some great guitar riffs.

Great album, but a little disappointed at the sound quality
