      Because your guitar playing is so much better than Tony MacAlpine's and Greg Howe's.

      Right? As good of players as they were (are), most of the Shrapnel records were just ****************.

    Those are 10 albums that I will never buy. Jimmy James can buy two of each to make up for me.

      Nice to see Tony and Vinnie getting some love...Passion and Warfare is still probably my fave of those...

      I approve of that list, no least because it doesn't mention Eddie the Van

        Jammity, you might be having better results at TGP, in part, because those folks are a little older. The bulk of the records on this list came out while I (and many folks here) was in grade school. We have no fond memories of these albums because we have no fond memories. And by the time I started buying records in earnest as a young teen, this style had gone very out of fashion.

        Know yr audience!

          I'm a big fan of the big man, and I have trouble finding an album of his that belongs on this list. Maybe Giant Robot, as a default pick.  Maybe Bucketheadland 2.  I'm not sure.

          Good names, all.

          I probably would have picked an earlier example of Racer X, though, like Street Lethal. I heard that one before I heard Vinnie Moore. I heard Steve Vai's Flex-Able a little before that, but Passion and Warfare is the more accomplished record, without a doubt.

            I bought Surfing with the Alien back in the day. I marvelled at the fingerwork but overall it was meh.

            I traded it off for something better.

             

            Wheedly wee wee with neither beat nor melody does not get it.

            copGive me the beat boys and free my soul

              It's named because it's the album that broke him. Personally, my favorite is Flying in a Blue Dream. The songs are more cohesive, more important than just backing tracks for him to jack off over the top of.

               

              Also, Uncle Cracker sucks.
