3.0 goodRobbit | December 30th 16

Yngwie's fingers are cooking the fretboards of his Stratocasters as always on 1999's ALCHEMY. There's plenty of jaw dropping guitar playing and even some fine vocals from Mark Boals, who also appeared on TRILOGY. Given that the formula is much the same as his classic albums, you would think this would be would be yet another turbo charged winner from the Swedish one. There's plenty of fireworks here for aspiring musicians to drool buckets over, but the songs just don't really capture my imagination. "Playing With Fire" and "Legion Of The Damned" are probably my favorites of the bunch, but these aren't quite essential when compared against his earlier work. Great playing, but forgettable songs that don't offer anything new. Just an inverted regurgitation of the same ideas he's been exploiting for years.
