Recorded between December 1983 and April 1984, and released by EMI in 1985, Electric Sun's first major label release features cover art by the late Monika Danneman, and now includes two bonus edits of the album's lead single 'The Night The Master Comes', and it's B-side, 'The Return'. EMI. 2009.

What can you say about this Guitarist and these albums that would do them justice, I have been a Uli Roth fan since the early eighties. I purchased his first two solo albums "Earthquake" and "Firewind" in 1983, the singing did not make me get to excited, but his guitar playing on those albums was awesome,very hendrixy chordal voicings coupled with his unique melodic soloing which he delivers with a beautiful tone,exceptional technique,and wonderful finger and tremolo arm vibrato, one of the few technically advanced players who can play with incredible feel and sensitivity, "not a brutal shredder". I believe "beyond the Astral skies" should be a land mark in musical history,it has phenomenally inspiring music on it, plus more exceptional playing. Uli seems to tap into the same kind of energy that hendrix did,his style is different, but a similar vibe encompasses both these players works. I recommend buying these albums.The last album he made was a departure from his earlier work but if you like classical music blended with rock music this album is equally as good,(keep in mind Prologue to Symphonic Legends is driven more by his song writting talents,he plays sparingly but each solo is great)Have a great day and remember to listen to some Uli jon Roth, he will make your day!

Simply incredible album from start to finish.. Uli Jon Roth is the most underrated guitar player of all time.. He should be as revered as Eddie Van Halen or any of the other guitar greats .... A true masterpiece ....

I often come back to this CD. It has come pretty stunning guitar work on it and is so full of musical melodrama. I love it!

Uli Jon Roth is a true musical genius and one of the first people to capably and effectively combine rock and classical music. While Beyond the Astral Skies is definitely rock there is strong classical influence in many parts. What is truly amazing about this CD is the wide range of emotions Uli makes you feel be it euphoria, sadness, joy, anger, or astonishment. Beyond the Astral Skies was recorded at an interesting point in Uli's career between the point where he was more of a pure rock musician (previous CDs) and the point where he became completely devoted to the art of combining rock and classical. So you get a rock CD with an other worldly feeling to many of the tracks. Anyone who loves beautiful music needs to get Beyond the Astral Skies and the Prologue to the Symphonic Legends / Sky of Avalon CD. Uli Jon Roth is truly one of the great musical geniuses of his generation.

Uli is phenomenal as always. I own this on Album I bought years ago so it great to have it in digital format. I loved his solo stuff but am pleased he started using vocalist starting with this recording.
