Product Description


A little cynicism is to be expected when a veteran guitar virtuoso jumps on the electronica bandwagon. But Joe Satriani, who takes that route with Engines of Creation, remains head and shoulders above most guitar gods through sheer good taste. Most of Engines is very good, and Satriani deserves credit at the very least for daring and inventiveness. However, its appeal will likely be largely limited to Satriani fans; it's difficult to imagine hardcore electronica heads getting down to this sort of thing, although the final two tracks consist of great chill music. Satriani makes effective use of the flexibility inherent in the genre's repetitiveness: often, he just lets the backing tracks play and solos over them, coming up with some truly otherworldly sonic exploration. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Engines of Satriani Feb. 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
What if Jimi Hendrix made a techno album? He would burn his beatbox on stage. What if Steve Vai attempted techno? He would have his grammy taken away. But what if Joe Satriani makes a techno album? He makes it sound unreal. Its virtually impossible for anyone to come out with a techno album this of such a high caliber. He won a grammy nomination for Until we say goodbye. Equally good are cluds race across the sky, ATTACK!, champagne and every one there. It's simply unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars 20th Century Satch Jan. 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album seperates itself from all of Satch's albums, but is still satch. The tecno sound and computerized sound may make you forget it's a guitar album, but Joe still packs his virtuosity in it, that's power! With just him and Eric, they were able to create a very undderated album. CLouds Race across theSKy, Engines of Creation, and others sparke the insanly great album!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just in the middle between 3 and 4 stars Dec 1 2003
By Jazzcat
Format:Audio CD
Joe changed some ingredients of his famous recipe here. He added some electronic stuff, electronic loops and drums probably under a Prodigy fascination. The results in the end are not bad. Some compositions are strong, among them stand surely the opener Devil's slide, Borg sex, and few others. The last track has a nice atmosphere too. In the middle of the selection there' s a little bit of confusion. Nothing major happens. There is also a tune (number 6), where Joe try to sound like Jeff Beck, well a poor attempt. I'm happy to have also this album from Joe and to me is a nice addiction to my collection, anyway if you don't know Joe don't start with this one. Buy Flying, or Surfing, or Extreming, or Not of this Earth first. No better, buy the double cd/dvd Live in San Francisco. The best Joe is all there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another incredible artistic achievement from Joe July 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Each album that Joe puts out is something different than anything he's done before. Whereas most artists that break away from their own style usually sound worse, Joe is always an exception. Engines of Creation is so cool. I usually hate techno, but Joe really uses it well. His guitar makes the techno possible. "Devil's Slide" is right in your face, with a guitar solo that makes your fingers tired just trying to play air guitar to it. "Champagne" is a really fun tune. It almost has a southern-rock feel. "Clouds Race Across the Sky" has the most beautiful solo that I have ever heard Joe do. His feeling and emotion on that one give me goosebumps! "Borg Sex" has an extremely interesting guitar solo playoff, fluctuating with liquid smooth legato runs, and super high stacatto licks; very very cool. I have every Joe album, and this one is as good as any other. Nobody has a sense of melody like Joe! Buy this disc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Borg sex, please June 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is an awesome CD. The first 4 songs along make it worth the purchase. The great thing about Satriani is that he sounds the same in concert as on the CD. Low end, high end... this thing rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Joe Knows Techno!! May 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
Okay, he may not be up there with the Paul Oakenfold production, but it was quite an impressive foray into another musical genre. The first album I heard from Joe was "Surfing with the Alien". I haven't heard anything from him since, that is as different or as interesting. The fact that he was able to produce tracks that were not instantly recognizable as Joe but did have his signature is great. I think that is the mark of a truly great musician. He can jump genres and manages to keep you interested. Very few guitarists out there possess what it takes to even entertain that idea. Joe is doing it, man!! Hopefully this album is a glimpse into Satriani's future approach to music. Are we adventurous enough to tag along for the ride?

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Tis Good March 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Satch fan since 1988; have bought every album on its release date. Have never before been compelled to write a review of a Joe Satriani album, but am presently listening to Engines... and feel it incumbent upon myself to pen these words.
Plenty of naysayers have made some rather odious remarks about this album. Don't believe them. This album flat out smokes. It is one of the man's finest achievements. Not only is he shredding as incredibly as ever, but the melodies are incomparably accessible and soaring. The song structures are "pop" and "schizo" at the same time. Satch is crafting soundscapes, evoking atmospheres, conjuring grooves, and boldly going where no other "shred" guitarist would dare.
If you don't dig techno-type music, well... fair enough. But don't deny that this album ranks alongside the man's best works. If you are concerned that the backing instruments on this album are electronic and not wielded by real live humans, then you are missing the point of music entirely. My deepest sympathies to you all.
