I have almost all of Yngwie's albums and I still think the first three are his best. At this point Yngwie was young & hungry and his guitar playing was on fire. Marching Out has several great songs like Disciples Of Hell (great riff and solo!), I Am A Viking (another cool riff and awesome run at the beginning of the solo), Don't Let It End (strong vocals from Jeff Scott Soto), & Overture 1383 (simply beautiful guitar interlude). It's cool that Yngwie is still putting out Malmsteen metal even though others went grunge or simply disappeared.

True vintage heavy metal music has always fit Yngwie like a glove. Back in 1985, the genre hadn't yet been contaminated with the fluff and hairspray of glam, and Yngwie began to step even more into his own arena with MARCHING OUT. The same cohorts from the first record return except for that Jens Johansson's brother Anders was at the drum kit and Marcel Jacob had taken over bass duties. This album, although similar in sound and execution to the classic first album RISING FORCE, differs in a few ways, the main one being few instrumentals, (only 2 here "Overture 1383" and "Marching Out" the latter being the better but neither even coming close to anything on the first record) and some short, quick fix rockers ("On The Run Again" and "Caught In The Middle"). But, this album did lay the blueprint for much of what was to follow for the next 15 years or so and truly is classic, if only for the fact that it seems, after reviewing his entire ouevre, Yngwie was in his prime here and on RISING FORCE both instrumentally and compositionally. Highlights include the scalding "I'll See The Light Tonight" and the flawless "I Am A Viking". For truly vintage heavy metal, check out the headbanging "Disciples Of Hell" (featuring a standout acoustic intro) or, for the more daring, we get the epic "Soldier Without Faith" which seems to be a cult favorite tune amongst hardcore fans. "Don't Let It End" is one of the guitarist's better power ballads and "Anguish And Fear" features great interplay between Yngwie and Jens.
An Yngwie album is alot like a James Bond movie. You KNOW what is going to happen, but you go see it anyway because something is bound to excite and impress you.

Malmsteens famous ego once made his mouth say these immortal words - "Anyone who denies I started a new way of playing guitar, is just lying". And you know what? He's kind of telling the truth. But that doesn't make it OK to go around saying it! Such statements can only be backed up by blinding excellence over a long period. Yngwie had the brilliance, but it only lasted a few albums before starting to dissipate due to a shallow creative well.

Regardless, it has to be said that had he continued to produce albums of this stellar quality his ego may have been justified. For stellar it is. An album of near metallic perfection marred by only a couple of tracks that over the years I've come to resent somewhat for blighting this masterpiece.

And masterpiece it is. OK the dil intro was a pain in the old days of cassettes - cos you'd fast forward past it but once you get past that thing then things improve markedly. Truth be told, I'd often fast forward past the first two proper tracks as well, I'll See the Light Tonight and Don't Let it End not quite floating my boat despite their hearfelt longing mixed with heroic metal bombast. No fols, what I wanted was to be found on tracks four onwards.

Disciples of Hell and I Am A Viking are sort of prototype power metal. Bombastic, passionate and fiercely talented heavy rockers and this sort of stuff must of primed so many of the power metal bands that came pouring out of Europe 10-12 years later. The mental imagery these two tracks evoke is spot on for the genre and Jeff Scott Sotos' vocals are magnificent. The instrumental Overture 1383 is a somewhat welcome breather before the listener plunges into the meat of what was originally side 2.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I read a review bashing Jeff Scott Soto's vocals on this album. He has soaring vocals, operatic without screaming, touching, melodramatic, strong ... What more could you ask for? I'm with the vocal coach in his analysis -- Jeff Scott Soto has an amazing voice without the growling, "what in the world did he just scream?" silliness that gives heavier music a bad reputation. Yngwie's blazing, rapid guitar style is the perfect pairing with Jeff Scott Soto's well-trained voice. This is melodic metal at it's finest -- I always compare this type of music to classical music. It would sound beautiful on violins and other orchestral instruments. I've had this project for years, and every time I play it, I either vacuum the house and wash the dishes at double speed, or start doing aerobics at a heart-healthy pace. This energetic music gets me going every time!

That was exactly what I was thinking the first time I heard Marching Out. This is a Yngwie masterpiece CD. Great guitar work throughout, not to mention Jeff Scott Soto's killer vocals or the keyboard parts played by master Jens Johansson. I Am A Viking has a great lyrical score, and Soldier Without Faith has awesome melodies. If you're wanting the best of early Yngwie, get this album within 72 hours! You won't regret it.
