Together with Atom heart mother and The dark side of the moon, wish you were here is their best album ever.

Unstoppable Momentum, Joe Satriani Joe Satriani: Unstoppable Momentum

The quality of composition is certainly good, even if the great Joe is no longer able, however, to repeat the magic of the triptych 'Surfing With The Alien', 'Flying In A Blue Dream' and 'The Extremist', his three masterpieces. I have heard 'Unstoppable Momentum' so many times, it lacks a touch of madness and really overwhelming melodies. The solos are not particularly creative, I prefer to search for the right note at the right place, and in this sense 'The Exremist' is a milestone in its genre. I consider Joe Satriani a great composer as well as a great musician, so I was expecting something more ...

Gentle Giant, Gentle Giant Gentle Giant: Gentle Giant

Gentle Giant, homonymous debut album of the band, is a beautiful progressive rock work, and it is also the most 'hard rock' in their entire discography. Gentle Giant mix together rock, hard rock and progressive rock with elements of avant-garde and jazz, musicians have a great mastery of the instruments creating very elaborate atmospheres and sound themes where the three solo voices are often used in unison. 'Giant', the opening track, is quite hard rock with some jazz elements; 'Funny ways' instead is a very sweet song, in my opinion, it's the masterpiece of the album, acoustic guitar, violin and cello blend perfectly with vocals parts, great atmosphere; 'Alucard' ( Dracula backwards) is a refined and cheerful song; 'Nothing At All' , the song that opens the B-side of the vinyl version, is the second masterpiece of the album, a main theme interrupted by drums and piano solos, and then resumed at the end of the song, beautiful. Among the milestones of progressive, Gentle Giant, definitely has a ringside seat.
