Textul de pe ultima copertă
"Yngwie literally blew my mind when he came on the L.A. music scene in the early 1980s. The fastest & most articulate, fluid, melodic, classical-based rock guitarist I'd ever heard. Still the best at what he does all these years later."
"When Yngwie Malmsteen hit the scene in the early 1980s, it was as though a monolith appeared. He was playing electric rock guitar in a way that seemed completely unearthly and had to be seen to be believed. His tone was pristine and powerful; his vibrato, intonation, and control were stunning; His harmonic and melodic sensibilities were unique; his emotional investment in his melodies was captivating; and his sheer speed and technical command of the instrument were utterly breathtaking, to the point of frightening for some. Yngwie absolutely set a standard of virtuosity on the instrument that has yet to be matched."
"Yngwie is an amazing guitarist, and there is only one Yngwie Malmsteen. Let's face it, every guitarist wishes they could do what Yngwie does with those six strings and a pick, but what he does is not only superhuman, it is undeniably unique and original, too. There are imitators, some with equal proficiency, but none who can match the heart and the confidence behind his virtuosity."
"You have "Good" Guitar Players. You have "Great "Guitar Players. Then you have The Ones that CHANGE THE GAME. . . . It's not Just his Sheer & Uter Mastery & Command of the Instrument that make him Amazing. The Phrasing, The Vibrato, The Tone, and His FEEL & PASSION, along with the Overall Musicality that he brings to the table, are what make him so Special & Unique. . . . while other guitar players play fast and say Nothing, Yngwie Speaks."
