Album Review: “Not Of This Earth” Joe Satriani

Welcome to the Music Club


Joe Satriani tested out his first studio album release back in 1986 to the general public to display his guitar virtuosity.  It was a big jump for him, especially in a time period when you had growing popularity among guitar shredders like Dave Mustaine, Kirk Hammett (One of Satriani’s music students), Marty Friedman, and Yngwie Malmsteen.  “Driving at Night”  has a mixture of Jimi Hendrix instrumental riffs infused with Malmsteen and Hammett shredding.  “Hordes of Locusts” provide the fast picking that Satriani is known for.  This album is a huge importance that would be just the beginning of his guitar instrumental ripping artwork.
