"Vinnie Moore definitely ranks up there with the other guitar gods from the 80's with the big hair and the neo-classical style of playing. This album, Meltdown-1991, his third solo project was a little different from his 2 previous albums(Mind's Eye-1987, Time Odyssey-1988). But believe me, it still kicks a**. This album has a more straight forward, blues-hard rock sound to it. You can still hear Vinnie's monster talent show through on the solos, especially on MELTDOWN, CINEMA, and CHECK IT OUT. LAST CHANCE sounds like the typical rock anthem song from the metal days and Vinnie absolutely shreds on it. A good cd that showcases the diverse talent of Moore."

"This album kicks ass. It contains some of the best bluesy hard rock songs I've ever heard. It portrays his unique flawless style with a lot of feeling to the music. Meltdown was a great direction for Moore to take after proving his chops in his previous somewhat boring neo-classical stuff; this music is so much more enjoyable. He adds in sweep licks in the perfect places. And, importantly, he does not play just for the sake of speed on this album. Anyone who likes rock music would love this album, seriously. There is nothing to dislike."

"I've read some reviews that VM doesn't have his own style - this may be true...however, he borrows from many rock guitar greats and does a better job! To say Vinnie is talented is the understatement of the century.
The cool thing about this album is it combines the feel of a fun bluesy-rock album, the raw vibe of a metal album, with the thorough music knowledge/hyper-technical proficiency of a neo-classical album. Other than the fact it's a guitar instrumental, it's not stuck in one genre and it's definitely not boring! I can hear the styles of Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen and Greg Howe, just to name a few, all on this one album...worth the money."
