|My favorite album by Joe. The second really gets my blood going starting with "Summer Song." "Why" and "Motorcycle Driver" are also great.

|Right Tim. This one hell of an album. The production is great, and hardly with a bad track. I havent heard his latest two releases. Are they any good.??

|Crystal Planet had a couple of decent songs but the one after really sucked. The S/T is about the same as Crystal Planet maybe a tad better.

|In my first statement it should have said "second half."

|Maravilloso y preciosista.Aunque contiene toneladas de virtuosismo,el disco se sostiene gracias a buenísimas melodías,arreglos finísimos y una originalidad que pocos instrumentistas poseen.Geniales "Friends",el tema título,la alegre y cañera "Summer Song" y por supuesto "Motorcycle Driver",que ha sido durante años la sintonía del programa RockStar de la cadena40.Producción a cargo de Andy Johns,que le aporta un cierto toque AOR a esta cuidada obra maestra.

|By far the best instrumental album of all time! A killer album from start to finish. His guitar is like a voice in itself and still sends shivers down my spine every time I listen to it. Too many standouts on this but Friends and Blue Sky Happiness are my two all-time favourite Satriani tracks.

|Satriani's finest moment. The most beautiful collection of guitar based melodies i've ever heard. Beyond words... This album is out of this world.

|Otro increible disco del genial Joe Satriani! Como siempre, cada canción es un mundo a parte,manteniendo esa calidad que lo diferencia del resto de guitarristas. X cierto, sigo teniendo orgasmos con Motorcycle Driver, jeje

|Great record. Summer song and motorcycle driver are kick ass. Saw Joe on the G3-03 tour great show. Steve Vai did a solo that my jaw is still on the ground from. Great record but pick up the live in frisco one it's way better! Keep jamin Joe!!

|Si otro gran disco, discazo! el "surfing with the alien" es mejor que esta en mi humilde opinión aunque ni mucho menos tampoco. "cryin´" y "tears in the rain" son verdaderas joyas que hacen llorar a cualquiera! jeje.."Rubina's Blue Sky Happiness" "summer song" y "crazy" tambien estan buenas, aunque el resto solo regular IMO. Este junto al "surfing.." son clasicas de este genial hacha.. no.. esto tienes que tenerlo si o si, compra o muere. 9.3/10

|The greatist guitar album of all time. Amazing... it makes you weep and makes you fly. It has everything, the stunning solo's the beautiful melodies. If Jesus Christ is an instrument he'd be Satch's guitar... and he's say..."I'm Jesus, I'm extreme...and I'm the extremist". "Friends" the ultimate anthem! This is guitar Heaven, make no mistake.

|What a pearl...another one! After "Surfing With The Aliens" this record RULES! Go Satriani!!! Summer Song blows my mind!

|roxas i almost agree but surfing and blue dream were slightly better to me but as for guitar heaven your not wrong there the guy is genius
