Joe Satriani - Not of This Earth

Not of This Earth is the debut studio album by hard rock/heavy metal guitarist Joe Satriani. Over the years, Joe Satriani has become one of the most well-known guitarists in rock. Most known for his famous song 'Surfing With the Alien', which came around just a year after the debut, Satriani already has a strong developed sound on this release.

The album has sort of a space-y atmosphere to it, which is most heard in the opening title track, probably created by the machine-like sound of the drums and the way the keyboards are played. There's quite the amount of variation here as well, with some space-y funk rock in the song "The Snake". During the middle of the song, there is some awesome thrash shredding that works well being placed in the middle of the largely funk tune. There are some slower, more chill songs as well, such as "Rubina" and "New Day". These are among the best of his laidback tracks.

The main highlights on the album are definitely the aforementioned "The Snake", "The Enigmatic", "Hordes of Locusts", and "The Headless Horseman". 'The Enigmatic' is an uptempo rocker, with some awesome driving bass-lines. Not only is Satriani an amazing guitarist as shown with the soloing and shredding on the album, but he plays a mean bass as well. My favorite song on the album, and one of my favorite Satriani songs is certainly the metal masterpiece 'Hordes of Locusts'. What can I say, I'm a sucker for anything with the Phrygian scale. The drums and guitar have a nice thumping beat while the guitar sings, and The occasional middle-eastern instrument fits perfectly as well. Soon some great funky bass comes in for a little bit, too short a stay, but great nonetheless. Finally, the final track 'The Headless Horseman', is a crazy two-minute long jumpy song with some really impressive guitar work. The guitar has no distortion, but Satriani sure shreds.

Overall, Satriani definitely shows his skills on this album. It has a unique place in his discography with its total spacey atmosphere. I highly recommend this album to anyone who really likes instrumentals, master guitarists, or simply wants something a bit different. Hope you found this review helpful.

Feel free to comment!

Interesting album, this "Joe Satriani". With little real Metal. And a great desire to Jazz. We want, however, put down an album so interesting? Hmmm... No! From here to idolize Joe Satriani as one of the greatest Metal guitarists... Ok, Satriani is one of the first ten guitarists in the history of music but not as Metasl guitarist. As Eclectic guitarist... Meybe... Yes.

As I said this (and the fans of Joe should not have to hurt), I want to pursue the matter. In "Joe Satriani" I have heard great music. That, however, has little to do with Heavy Metal. Rather accosterei to some Jazz thoughtful and calm. The only point of contact with the Heavy Metal I have found in "Killer Be Bop", which is not Heavy Metal, after all. Yet "Joe Satriani" is an album that I love. And then what's the problem? Whether a fan of Progressive Rock or Progressive Metal loves an album like that. But a fan of Classic Metal, can love an album like this? Fortunately... Yes!

A very personal album, this "Joe Satriani". An album like so many and I would like to hear.

Not a bad album, after all. But... Believe me, if you love the eclecticism of this can also be a masterpiece. Do not dwell to listen to "Flying In A Blue Dream", "I Believe" and "The Forgotten" (part 2), excellent compositions truly magical and powerful, albeit very melodic. You will discover a very different album from Blues to Jazz, from Prog like "Dark Side Of The Moon" to the Tex-Mex (or similar). The result is an album where the claims are superior to the ideas (good, in general).

Here I say (and here I do not deny) Joe Satriani is a genius. But if he exaggerates are heavy troubles!

Not because Joe Satriani is a "guitar hero" "Not Of This Earth" is a Neoclassical Metal album or similar. "Not Of This Earth" is, in fact, a crossover album between Hard Rock/ AOR and Jazz Rock (guitar, in primis) without great distortions but with feelings and magic in first plan. The problem is that the music is, I think by choice in composition,dry and soulless. Is it a lack? On closer inspection this is an advantage. Since Joe Satriani can, thus, to express themselves 100% making us dream with our eyes open. In fact, the songs have aged really well and do not suffer from smudges or moments of decline. Why the songs are simple and straightforward and because magic.

Long life to "Not Of This Earth" and long life to Joe Satriani!
