2 stars Another G3 album displaying the height of guitar wankery. This time, shred pioneer Yngwie Malmsteen joins Vai and Satch to unleash his scalloped fretboard workouts. As with all G3 albums, they end before it gets good. Each guitarist only gets a few relatively short songs, followed by a great collaborative jam. None of the solo songs add much to the studio recordings. The covers that comprise the jam are a bit odd for metal shredders: all bluesy numbers from Neil Young and Hendrix. The jams, as always, are what make this worth buying. Fans of shred metal might like these, but considering the sheer talent of the players, I expected a lot more.

Highlights: Satch's MPHGT, Malmsteen's Blitzkrieg, the G3 jam

Grade: D
