This album is Yngwie's best album. But why? It's recognizably Yngwie… fast solos, keyboards, acoustic shredding, usually cheesy songwriting, requisite poppy song or two – but it's also recognizably different. Done with taste, as some might say. You'll get a few surprises, but nothing you haven't heard on Seventh Sign. So what's the difference, then? Yngwie hasn't toned it down. Rather, Yngwie has let loose. With a genuine defiance of everything else, Yngwie has kicked everything else (and his own playing) up a notch, and adding an air of unpredictability to his formerly stale playing, and made a genuine album.

By the time of Eclipse, Yngwie Malmsteen's influence had spread far across the guitar community – dazzling technique was almost a prerequisite to play lead guitar in a heavy metal band, and places like the Berklee School of Music and GIT (which used such Malmsteen favorites as Beethoven and Paganini to hone technique) were churning out guitar virtuosos as if they operated assembly lines. The bottom line was that no matter how innovative Malmsteen had been at the outset of his career, he no longer sounded that way, even though as an originator he still far outstripped his legions of mimics.

Even though the '90s are considered by many longtime Yngwie Malmsteen fans as not necessarily his musical or creative peak (the '80s are usually given the nod), you have to give credit to the Swedish guitar shredder for sticking to his guns throughout the '90s. When just about every veteran rocker was trying to fit in with the musical climate (whether it be donning flannel during the grunge years or donning baggy jeans during the rap-metal years), Malmsteen paid no mind – continuing merrily on his classic metal path. Since his albums were uneven during this period, the 14-track Best of Yngwie Malmsteen: 1990-1999 will come in handy to casual admirers, who aren't going to track down Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in E Flat Minor Op. 1 anytime soon…

Like him or not, you have to credit Yngwie Malmsteen for sticking to his guns over the years. Since his debut in the early '80s, he hasn't slowed down a bit, despite countless obstacles that have been thrown in his path along the way. This double-CD live set shows that – astonishingly – Malmsteen's playing is even faster and more over the top in concert than it is on his studio recordings. Overall, Double Live is far superior to the muddy-sounding (and sloppy) Live in Leningrad disc, released ten years earlier. It includes some tasty covers by Rainbow, Deep Purple, and Jimi Hendrix. ~ Andy Hinds

After toiling with classical references in his music for most of his career, guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen finally dedicated himself to writing a concerto for electric guitar. The combination is not unique, as several rock groups, including Metallica, have been backed by full orchestras, but this is the first work of its kind to feature the electric guitar as the lead instrument in a concerto. One of Malmsteen's biggest target's for criticism has been his inability to move beyond his speed demon reputation that he acquired after bursting on the scene in the early '80s…
