Most of his solos are improvised. The only problem is that he's decided to sit back instead of working hard on his solos. If you listen to his first couple of records especially Marching Out, you can hear that they were pretty worked out. And they were quite a bit better. Now he is focusing more on ...

I was wrong. It is not Steve singing. I changed the pitch and you can hear it's a different guy. But there are a variety of things "in the m###f$#@ing house"

Yngwie has not recorded Beethoven's 5th. And I also believe that Steve is singing in Wipeout. He's been known to do that stuff before like Little Green Men has some sped up parts in it too. Or higher octaves or whatever you call it.

I love Yngwie's playing, I'm even in his fan club, but his acoustic playing really bites sometimes. Watch the Denver acoustic bit. He's missing notes left and right and changing keys and it just doesn't sound right. . It's the worst part of the dvd. This kind of thread always turns nasty. If you enj...

I've read that he said he would like to be a mailman. That was years ago though.

I don't really think it should be on the album, but it's not my record. I think it is exactly where it belongs - on a sample cd, or somewhere in the jewel box.

It's because the guitar sounds as if it's saying "Yai Yai" over and over.

The song isn't that great. I'm sure the rest of the album is better than that. It's a neat trick and all, but doesn't do it for me.

Got mine yesterday. I just listened to it. I think it's really cool. I especially like Bledsoe Bluvd, Salamanders, Junkie, Ballerina. I am looking forward to listening to it again with headphones. The print is also very neat too. I can't understand it, but it looks cool. I can hardly wait for "Piano...

I like FTLOG but I don't really like the little solo he adds to the end of the song. The one that comes to mind is the one on the G3 '96 video.

I can't stand "Whookam".

I think "Love Secrets" is pretty cool though.

I took little pieces of seaweed and I caused stretch marks to appear all over your little body. Yes I did. I really did. It was all over your body.
