    New Yngwie album drops March 29! It features covers of classic tunes, some blues originals, and includes his take on "while my guitar gently weeps"

    Go on, click the link, you know you are curious!



    The article from musicrader has the best quote from Mr. Malmsteen with respect to this album:
    “There was no moment where I thought I should hold back or play slower”

    I don't like the singer on this track though. I don't know why....just don't. he has never really picked singers that are good for rock. I mean, they were good singers, but they never fit right....know what I mean?

    I remember exactly where I was when I first heard Yngwie! Just like when I first heard Eddie.

    Incredibly bad, so sad, if a guitar gently weaped like that it should get electro shock therapy.

    What do you mean by "bad"?

    I can understand that it is indeed a "sad" song. The guitar in the song is an electrical one, but shocks seem unlikely.

    Probably my fave Yngwie album was the old Alcatrazz "Live Sentence" album with "Since you been gone" Malmsteen flavored to the hilt. A great album when he was gosh like 19 I guess.

    Apparently "gently" is interpretted a little differently in Sweden.

    Still a fan of his early stuff but did not dig that at all.

    Is it a spoof?

    The beginning was more promising, it sounded like free jazz on sax.

    Actually it was o.k. I'm not a fan of shred but it wasn't bad and the singer wasn't bad either. I've heard covers like this done metal ruined by the vocals, this wasn't bad at all.

    I managed 54 seconds before hitting stop. That's 54 seconds of my life gone for ever. At my age I can't afford to waste any more!

    I dug it. He plays a lot of nice, folding runs with peaks and valleys. He certainly got a lot of that from Bach and other Baroque-Early Classical composers.

    I actually liked the singer's full-throated sound, whose vibrato complemented Malmsteen's (which you can hear at the ends of phrases). What I didn't like was the way he would say "All right" leeringly before each guitar solo. I guess he meant it as an announcement, like "Ahhhh, Leon!" Maybe the singer was trying to say "Ahhhh, Yngvie," instead of "Allll right!"

    The whole thing was super produced and assembled-sounding, but clearly with a musical thought behind it. He does a good job of using timbre to create phrases and sections in his solos.

    My only real complaint about this and other Yngvie solos that I've heard, is not with the speed of the material, but how it doesn't breathe in a way that I feel it should. His phrases sometimes leave me gasping for air at the end.

    According to the axioms he seems to have laid down as a teenager, he had developed into something interesting and fresh, still. More power to him.
