Editorial Reviews

2010 release, the highly anticipated follow-up to the critically acclaimed Perpetual Flame. This marks Yngwie's first studio album in over two years of entirely newly composed never before heard songs created by the virtuoso himself. Inspired by the spirit of celebrated composer/musician Niccol Paganini, Yngwie reaches new heights on this ground-breaking album. Relentless contains over 60 minutes of incredibly complex arrangements sure to amaze the listeners. The album was produced by Yngwie himself, and mixed by Keith Rose. Features ex-Judas Priest and Iced Earth singer Tim "Ripper" Owens.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best release in the last 20 years November 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Welcome home is all I can say. Being a fan since I first him back in the mid 80's, this is a really fantastic album. It feels very natural and well though out. A lot of his recent releases have felt rushed and under produced. This album captures a lot of his classic tone that I feel has been lost over the years.

I downloaded it from Amazon when I woke up today and I have listened to it twice and can't say there is a bad track. It's great to hear Yngwie have Ripper back on vocals. Tim is a monster in his own right and he fits right in on this album.

If you are a fan, new or old do yourself a favor and pick this up!

I have been exposed to Malmsteen's music for more than 20 years. I am an amateur guitar player and Yngwie's playing and style had a huge effect on me. Players like Ritchie Blackmore, Gary Moore, Randy Rhoads and Malmsteen are the reasons why I started playing the electric guitar. I have listened to everything he did, including his early work with Steeler and Alcatrazz. I am giving all this info so that people can understand that I am a real Malmsteen fan. But I am no "fanatic". I know the fine line between these two. Fanatics worship their idols and can not criticize them no matter what they do.

To me, the last good studio album Yngwie has released was "Alchemy" and he has been going downhill ever since. "War to End All Wars" was the worst produced album ever... Despite the fact that he had a excellent vocalist like Doogie White (who is ten times better than Ripper) on "Attack!" and "Unleash the Fury", the songwriting was pretty lame.

Perpetual Flame was also lame (Ripper is no match for Yngwie's earlier singers; to my ears the guy has serious intonation problems and I think he is trying to cover it by recording lots of multi-tracked vocals) and Relentless is not any better. There is not a single tune that I liked, because Yngwie took the easy road once again and wrote very lazy melodies in his favorite Spanish Phyrigian mode. It is very obvious that he did not bother to stretch his imagination for songwriting, unlike the excellent "Facing the Animal" and "Alchemy" albums, where he had all kinds of different tunes at different tempos, written in different modes and with different time signatures. Do not expect to hear something as marvelous as "Facing the Animal", "My Resurrection", "Sacrifice", "Another Time", or "The Stand", "Leonardo" or "Blue".

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars to the 5 stars guitar player November 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
this is the cd that every collection should have i have been a yngwie fan since 1990 the 1st that i got was trilogy and since i had been following yngwie what made me a fan at the 1st place was his music and guitar playing and i have to say this - this album is a return to what made him the best guitarist ever what makes this cd the best is that its full of solos and songs with deep meanings + yngwie playing is at its best

long live yngwie

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep going Yngwie!!!! November 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just downloaded the CD through Amazon.com and gotta say it is excellent. The production is the best in my mind since Alchemy way, way better than Attack!! Unleash the Fury and Perpetual Flame (All seemed muddy and muted to me)

Highlights for me after my first listen were:Look at you now (Yngwie vocals on this are my favorite since Angel in Heat, he continues to progress as a vocalist although I am glad he has not tried to sing on an entire album!!) Relentless is awesome! Enemy Within is BRUTAL and Ripper sounds great on this Album (Not overprocessed as on Perpetual Flame! Cross to Bear is great also!

Some interesting stuff on this one!!

Highly recommended!!!

Thanks Yngwie for doing what you do! I appreciate someone who just refuses to compromise their vision and sound!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Production and Uninspired September 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've been a huge Yngwie fan for many years and he's the reason I play guitar. I love his work no matter what his latest, "Relentless", is a big letdown. First off, the songwriting isn't that great. There's a few gems, such as "Shot Across the Bow", "Critical Mass", and "Look At You Now", but nothing memorable. You can tell the album sounds like the cuts that didn't make it to "Perpetual Flame" (which I believe was Yngwie's best and only memorable album since "Magnum Opus"). Also, the production quality is downright horrible. The drum are not mixed well and sound like a drum machine; the cymbals are barely audible in terms of clarity, also. The acoustic guitar work sounds awful and the overall tone of the album sounds like something I could whip up in my home studio. I hate to give Malmsteen a poor review but this isn't a good album from him. Get back into form, Yngwie! Hire a new singer because Ripper isn't doing it for you. Imagine if Ian Gillan or Tony Martin sang for him. That'd be awesome!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bad mix spoils what should have been a good CD. March 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The poor recording quality was disappointing for me. The last few songs were better than the first half, but overall the sound is weak. It seems a bit heavy on the bass. On some tracks the drums sound poor, like it's tuned different or something, I didn't like it. The mix could have been better. It's a little flat, not very punchy or loud like some CD's. I also got Megadeth's End Game and that mix is perfect. It'll blow up your speakers when cranked up. I really like Tim Owens singing he's a good fit for Yngwie. This disc is not as good as some of his older material but there is enough to enjoy.
