2nd Favorite Shrapnel Album
shredguitar | Nashville | 05/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is awesome!!! Think of it as fusion/blues/all-out-shred.It is my second favorite shrapnel album after Jason Becker's "Perpetual Burn".Its a shame its out of print, but I got a brand new factory sealed copy for $20.00!!! I guess I'm just lucky. The first two songs are actually possible to play on guitar with a lot of practice, but at the third song it just goes crazy. Kotzen's playing mixes unbelievable speed with extreme taste to create a highly enjoyable listening experience. Do whatever you can to get a copy. You won't be dissapointed!!!"
Ritchie, get this one Rereleased!

"I really would like to see this album get released again. My brother who is a guitarist had this, Ritchie's debut, on cassette and lost it at some point. We even still have the case and cover but no tape. Anyway it was an influential guitar album for my brother because he was buying all these speed guitarist albums at the time (Marty Friedman, Jason Becker, Yngwie Malsteen, Vinnie Moore, Greg Howe, Kotzen, etc.) I'm mainly interested in drums but have become a dabbler in all different instruments. I would love to see this back in stores. It doesent make any sense to have all of his later albums available and not the debut that introduced him. This album rocks and more than just guitar freaks will like it! I'm putting my vote in for a new remaster!"
Kotzen, with a class of his own....

"I had heard this album first when I had just started listening to english music.It was originally called "Kaliedoscope". At that time I found it too noisy.I heard a lot of english music after that and of all kinds.After about 3 years I heard this album again at my friends place and this time I was thoroughly amazed. The Skills involved in playing, the Style of playing, The Mood of each song was just different from all that I had heard till then.I did not even remember that I had heard the same album before and I had found it noisy. Now I was dying for this album, but it was too late; the album was not printed any more.. I however managed to get the album on tape from my friend but by now my tape has given up. If anybody could help me get this music on CD,at any cost, I would be highly thankful to the person.I still have some hopes....(snodis@hotmail.com)..."
