I've been spinning this at work today.
I've said this countless times, but this album totally changed my conception of what a guitar could do, and what instrumental guitar could be. It's simply amazing - incredible playing, incredible songwriting, interesting and somewhat innovative production, great tones...
This is hands down my favorite Satriani album, and I probably wouldn't be half the guitarist I am today had I not bought it after seeing a tab for the intro to "Raspberry Jam Delta-V" in a Guitar Player and wanting to hear what that sounded like.
It's hard to believe that I bought it soon after it came out in 1998, which is now ten years ago.
