This is surely a great album and a must-have item if you're a Yngwie fan. I just can't believe the video (either VHS or DVD or LD or DVD-R) version is not available or even listed on Amazon.com. Or am I simply missing it? I'm referring to the Alcatrazz live in Japan in '84, entitled "Metallic Live '84". Was I privilaged to have seen the video, which I still own, in the same year in Japan?

I just checked out Amazon.com.jp, and the VHS video (no DVD is listed) is out of stock. Well, if you're a true Yngwie fan, you must see the video somehow: The CD is nothing compared to it. If you do, You'll see the young (20 or so), slim and very cool Yngwie on and off stage. There are several minutes of him practicing backstage and being interviewed. You'll see the (then) incredible fingering and picking; actually, it's far better than watching some of his instruction videos because camera work is great, heavily concentrated on Yngwie. You can see his face full of emotions, passionate, sometimes demonic, sometimes as if dreaming, and even smiling at some points. His play is sincere and terrific, partly due to the fact that, I guess, Japanese audience is relatively quiet in between songs and they don't go crazy and screaming even during songs.

Graham's vocal, much as I like and admire him, is not so good, unfortunately. Must have been tired. But you can listen to him singing Lost In Hollywood, which is not on the CD! But if you don't have access to the video, the CD is highly recommendable nonetheless.

This is the album that made guitarist forget about Hendrix (for a while at least), kicked Eddie Van Halen to the curb and spawned so many clones that "Neo-Classical" became a catagory at the record stores.Sure he may not have all the feeling in his playing that would come in later years.. but there is something to be said about the abandone of youth. I still get chills when I listen to this album ( OK I cringe a few times when hearing the vocals, but the guitar playing and energy make up for any other flaws). A must have for any true Yngwie fan or anyone who loves guitar music.

A must own for any Yngwie Malmsteen fan.This was one of Malmsteen's fist bands.Lead singer Grahm Bonnet's loud and obtrusive style(if you wanna call it a style)is the only reason this cd does'nt get a 5 star rating.Malmsteen is simply stunning on this live recording,and his backup band is right there for him every step of the way.Bonnet,(formerly the lead singer of Rainbow)includes two of his songs from his former band;Scince You've Been Gone, and All Night Long.Yngwie promptly shreds the work of Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore on his own material.The real juice comes from the tunes Malmsteen co-wrote. Hiroshima Mon Amour,Too Young To Die,and Kree Nakoorie burn with crunching guitar riffs and chainsaw speed solos,forgiving the vocals(Grahmm seems to be screaming his freakin' vocal chords off).The absolute highlight of the show is Malmsteen's instrumental works;Coming Bach,a classical peice written by of course,Bach, and EVIL EYE the spotlight solo performance for Malmsteen.The 2'000 mph fretwork and tasty classical lines Yngwie rips thru on this song alone are worth the price of admission alone!

Given the fact that Rainbow similarly produced the premature live album On Stage early in its career, it is initially tempting to believe that Alcatrazz's decision to follow suit was symptomatic of any metal group possessing a guitar god. However, when considering that Live Sentence was apparently released without Yngwie's consent, it becomes increasingly evident that this EP was made to boost the group's sagging finances by showcasing the technical prowess of the renowned guitarist. Ironically, nonetheless, as fate would have it, just when Yngwie's reputation had sufficiently grown for the citation of his name on the album cover to lure buyers, he had acrimoniously left Alcatrazz shortly prior to the release of this concert. Nevertheless, at the time of this recording, Yngwie seemed to be on relatively amiable terms with the rest of the group, a fact more palpable on the video, where he happily mimics Graham's vocal line (in the tradition of Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Gillan) in concert and confusedly sings the lyrics to Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" backstage.
Seldom has there been a live recording of a group so lopsidedly dominated by a single band member, thereby generating no surprise that Yngwie's tenure with Alcatrazz proved to be brief. Nevertheless, to claim that Alcatrazz was held hostage to the guitar god is improbable considering that on tracks like "Kree Nakoorie" enabling an opportunity for Gary Shea to commence the song with his own keyboard solo, he inexplicably relegates himself to a subordinate role in only playing the intro neo-classical riff with the inevitable result that Yngwie can exclusively hog solo time. Consequently, by this recording, Alcatrazz had already become a backing band, proving that Yngwie hardly needed to go solo to achieve musical hegemony.

I really want to love this CD

the guitar playing is mindblowing...but the album is over before you can really get into it

and for such a short album having 2 very long guitar solos seems a bit much,even though they are great,it just seems to be too much

however songs like All Night Long and Since You've Been Gone make this a worthwhile addition to any good hard rock collection

Alcatraz is a great band,with some of the fastest guitar solos on the planet and this album captures them live,there is some real nice crowd interaction but unfortunately there aren't enough songs to really build a mood...there are definitely some nice moments and if they could have kept the momentum going with songs like Islands In The Sun into Since You've Been Gone to All Night Long it would have been a classic but it seems to get drug down by the extended guitar solos and strange choices like Kree Nakorie

the studio albums are much better and I would recommend seeking them out,Alcatraz is a great band and worthy of more attention then they got

If you enjoy great rock music in the style of early Rainbow,Fastway,Waysted etc...then check 'em out...and if you are a guitarist then check out the live album and the studio albums because they had both Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen in the band at different times...you can't get much better then that

but as for the live album on it's own merits,it's too short to be effective,sorry

the upside - great guitar playing,and the outstanding songs 'since you've been gone' 'Islands in the sun' and 'All night long'

the downside - too unbalanced and far too short,especially at the asking price

the bottom line - the studio albums are better,but if you are a huge fan,check this out...donutman says so!!!
