Alchemy is the new album from an ever returning to form Yngwie J Egostein.|
It is also the album that welcomes back singer Mark Boals. A great set of tonsils this man has.
This album I would have to rate as one for the pure bread fans. This is a sonic blast if I have ever heard one. It contains more thrashing guitars and widdly solo's than I have heard in a long while! The onslaught begins with track 1 and doesn't finish until the dying seconds of the last track.
For that reason I recommend that the feint hearted or casual Yngwie fan steer clear.
There is a couple of moments where the pace slows, but never to that of a ballad or even mid paced song. I really liked the Odyssey album he recorded with Joe Lynn Turner. Great album and one that showed a great deal more restraint than this album does!
I personally miss the one of two softer or mid paced songs and long for a little more passion in the songs.
But as far as passion in the playing, that's here without question. Yngwie's solo's are second to none.|
