By C. M. Gillum on April 17, 2009
Format: Audio CD
Yngwie has been a household name for years when it comes to anything related to guitars. His earlier works such as Rising Force or Trilogy have become classics and are considered by many to be the definitive of musicianship and guitar artistry. If you are one of those people then you might as well not read any of the reviews including my own, as this album will please you. Any others whom maybe skeptical please continue reading.

This album as you should and probably already do know is predominantly acoustic. Which means if you are a fan of Yngwie's earlier riffing and faster paced Metallic sound then there is a 50/50 chance this album might be a bit of a disappointment. Now don't think this isn't an amazing album because it is honestly one of the best acoustic albums I have heard. There are electric guitar pieces but they are sparse and more a part of the background to help create a dynamic contrast to the acoustic guitars, rather then the rip roaring leads Yngwie is better known for.

The all around pace of the album is slow and at times has a haunting ambiance untouched by fellow guitar legends. There is quite a bit of orchestral/keyboard work in the background giving the songs more structure rather then just having the guitars alone, this I am thankful for. I love good guitar playing, but I enjoy it more when it is accented by some kind of backdrop. Being a long time fan of Malmsteen and his various works I can honestly say this is one of my favorite releases by him in some time.

As a long time fan I was pretty excited to see my copy from Amazon show up in my mailbox today. Since then I have listened to this a few times over and must say it's about exactly what I expected when I read what the album was supposed to be.

Ten tracks, all recorded acoustically... well, sort of! Yngwie pulls out the electric here and there to help in the layering of tones.

If you are a fan, I would certainly suggest you pick this up as it's great to see Yngwie shed a different light on his music. There is a lot of great guitar work and some really nice arrangements of tracks we all know and love. As a bit of a surprise, he actually seems to hold back on the Nylon shredding when it seems appropriate (which is not always the case). This adds a lot of dimension to the music on this record. He lets the the arrangement take over with a lot of very fat keyboard tones while he masterfully crafts his guitar into this sound stage.

I have been a fan of Yngwie for about 20 years. He is the reason I play guitar the way I do. He paved the way for all the shredders out there in the world. If there was no Yngwie, guitar technique WOULD NOT be what it is today. You may love him or hate him, but that fact is undeniable....

Okay, now to the album. My wife is a Vietnamese lady. She love traditional Vietnamese music, and was born in raised in Vietnam before she moved to the states. At night when we sleep, we put on soft music to sleep to. It is a thing we do. One day I decide to put on this music to see what she thought. After about 1 minute of playing, she turns to me and says "Thats so beautiful! Who is that?" She asked me to put it into her iPod, and asked me how to pronounce his name. It is really cool when something you love is also appreciated by someone you love. The fact that a non-metal fan, that was raised in poverty and came from a very humble life, can listen to Yngwie and hear the melody, and feel the music....i think it really shows that Yngwie, the Master, is more than just a mindless shredder. He is a MUSICIAN that can be appreciatted for more than just his world-class technique and wall of Marshall Stacks.

The album itself is a collection of many of Yngwie's ballads, and replayed in instrumenal form. His acoustic tone is sweet, and he also plays his strat with his signature overdriven, single-coil tone. His tone really shines against the softer backdrop of the music. Good stuff! Not boring, and a nice change from his metal stuff.

(edit, 01/26/2013)
It has been almost 2 years since I made this review. This CD is still fresh to my ears. I like the fact that you get to hear the vocal melodies to many of his songs, but played on guitar instead. It really shows what Yngwie is all about.

Music is about textures, and colours both dark and light, and subtleties that the musician throws in for good measure, and who hopes that the listener will pick up on.

Well you cannot miss it on Angels of Love.

The new album is a step away from the usual heavy rock affair. It has a more melancholy feel to it, but with the trademark licks and runs that we all associate Yngwie with.

Yngwie shows that he is master musician, and that he can put his mark to any style, and so this is the case with the new album.
Again the production of the album is well done, and it is good to hear Michael Troy, I look forward to hearing his keys on the next heavy rock album!!

So it is with Sorrow that I have to end this review...

Enjoy.
