I love his first album to death, and the second is really good.
Odyssey and Eclipse are the most listenable overall musically to me.
I have seen Malmsteen, Moore, and MacAlpine in the past 2 years. That's a lot of notes!
You've made me want to pull this out again. I doubt I've listened to an Yngwie album from top to bottom in more than 20 years.MO is definitely my favorite Yngwie album. I prefer the fact that the solos are shorter, and in the context of cool metal songs. Plus, the title track is my favorite instrumental piece of his.
Though his first album was groundbreaking, and no doubt blew everyone's mind, Marching out is just a better album to me. The mix and his tone are fantastic, the songs have awesome emotional content, Jeff Scott Soto's vocals are killer, any Yngwie's solos are better constructed-- meaning, there is a buildup of emotion, despite being fast, there really isn't any wankery...it's all purposeful.
Marching Out, I Am A Viking, I'll See the Light Tonight.... classics!
And Soldier Without Faith is just completely badass. I don't think Yngwie's ever written another song like that.
Oh well, I won't change anyone's mind. I love his first four albums. The rest has been redundant (except for Concerto).
I too listen to the song Marching Out often. It's like Comfortably Numb....I can never, EVER get tired of it.
On the Run again would be my fave solo on that album ,wicked.Full of Feel and bravadoOne of my favorite albums
I’ll argue with you for eternity that Soldier Without Faith is the best recorded electric rock guitar solo of all time.
This record has serious vibe. Dark.
