Surfing With The Alien
"Surfing With The Alien" rocketed Joe Satriani to the top of the instrumental guitar heap in the mid-80s, as he proved equally capable of fast flights of blinding technique as well as sweet, lyrical passages. Recorded with equal parts drum programming and real drums (courtesy of Jeff Campitelli), Satriani served up his guitar and bass on a silver platter. Witness the twisted, horizon-pushing "Ice 9," the fiery solo flights on "Surfing with the Alien," the straight-ahead, slamming rhythms of "Crushing Day," and the soulful beauty of "Always with Me, Always with You". "Surfing With The Alien" remains a true instrumental guitar classic.
