Product Description:

Personnel: Joe Satriani (guitar, keyboards, programming); Eric Caudieux (keyboards, bass, programming); Pat Thrall (bass); Anton Fig (drums).
"Until We Say Goodbye" was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
Master shredder and guitar instructor to some of rock's biggest names, Joe Satriani could surely rest on his laurels. His instrumental virtuosity has already placed him in the hallowed halls of music, yet he continues to release fresh, inventive material. Combining guitar showmanship and electronica, his most ambitious release yet, ENGINES OF CREATION expands his repertoire even more.
"Devil's Slide," with its furious machine gun riffs and time changes, shows that Satriani won't be making a New Age album anytime soon. "Flavor Crystal 7" proves that while he's no Moby, he can deliver some catchy breaks and beats of his own. On the trippy "Borg Sex," he demonstrates the heavy guitar effects that have made him famous, while "Until We Say Goodbye" is a return to the mellower melodic phrasing of his earlier works. "Attack" is a Crystal Method-inspired ambient piece, and "Champagne" features blues licks over an electronic backbeat. On ENGINES, Joe Satriani has harnessed the availability of modern technology and merged it with his unique guitar talent. The man who started an entire movement in the late '80s seems poised to reinvent rock in the new millennium.
