Joe Satriani - Crystal Planet


By chance I started listening to this one at YT. Initial reaction is WOW!
Is it as good as it sounds?

I remember really liking it when it came out but it was shortly after that I had a slew of cd's stolen and that was among them. I just never got around to replacing it.

Re: Joe Satriani - Crystal Planet


I have a hard time telling one album from another in the later releases from Satriani.

I can't say that any of them has been a big Wow or a big crap.

When I listen to one of his albums it's generally "Flying in a blue dream", "Time Machine" or "Joe Satriani" or one of the G3.

That's my issue too. CP was the last album I bought. I've heard the ones that came after it but just never bought them. I thought everything leading up to CP was great though, especially the Red album and Surfing.

Re: Joe Satriani - Crystal Planet


I have seen Satriani twice live, once opening for Dream Theater, once opening for DP. I can honestly say he is the most boring highly talented person I have ever seen. I have Crystal Planet, and I don't think I could get through more than two songs before being bored. I know some people love his playing, but damn, bores me to tears.

I would put them in the same general category. I just can't do the whole endless soloing disguised as songs thing. They have each done well in a more traditional band scenario, bot their own stuff? Yawn.

I too, have a hard time with these instrumental albums.
And initial feelings about CP faded soon.
