Air Guitar Classics PtII (Joe Satriani's Surfing With the Alien)


Just like when you need some alone time with Mrs Palmer, some things are best enjoyed in the privacy of yer bedroom. This album is one such guilty pleasure & just like spanking the proverbial primate, this pushes all the right buttons to replicate that orgasmic satisfaction.

Fer those unfamiliar with the name, this bloke was guitar teacher to Kirk Hammett (Metallica) & Surfing With The Alien was his breakthrough album. This instrumental rock guitar album is designed with one purpose only - to get pimply-faced teenage boys everywhere to pick up their tennis/badminton/squash racquets & start gurning in front of the mirror pretending to be the Ultimate Guitar Hero!

Like Eddie Van Halen, Satriani eschewed subtlety in favour of in-yer-face licks & hooks which made you want a Flying V fer yer b'day.
Loud, brash & completely free of irony, Satriani's fret work was at its commercial zenith here.
Absolutely nay apologies, this is music fer adolescent boyz who love the guitar-solo-as-wanking histrionics . . . & it's bloody brilliant! Hope ye downloads this & spend all weekend striking poses! Have a good one!

The album is not so good, but neither is the worst, I think that The producer of viagra online until the sky have done a better job.
