    I was just wondering if anyone had any comments on the new Satriani CD... and was also wondering if there will be an SACD release as with his previous 2 albums?

    Dont know about any SACD but the cd is great.

    I was going to post this but didnt have the chance, but this is a good thread to mention it in.:
    Last week Satch did a meet n greet/in store performance here in Sac. He played about 7 songs and did a signing. (It was so crowded we didnt stay). It was a cool show though!

    Listened to the new disc this morning.

    The good:
    About what you'd expect from the man. Most importantly, he's still got the song-writing skills. Some real nicely flowing tunes here.

    The bad:
    Suffers from compression, sound squishing, and the typical plagues of modern mastering.

    But still, chalk up another masterpiece to his impressive career.

    Two years ago, when I bought Engines Of Creation simply because it was "available" on SACD (in two channel, at that), I first got acquainted with Satriani. I'm now utterly hooked. Lately, I barely listen to anything else.

    Is There Love In Space? tells me that he's still at the top of his game, which, to me, means that he's just adding to the body of work created by the best ever guitarist.

    It apparently was going to be a hybrid SA-CD but was turned into a CD release at the last minute. The CD has SACD titles for the tracks that read out in my SACD player's readout.

    Anyone know of a good/cheap place to get the "Strange and Beautiful Music" SACD?

    Love his work. I have been a fan since "Surfing" which I own on the original Vinyl as wel as the CD's

    Unfortunately his latest CD hasn't been released in Australia yet.

    I think that Sat's new one is easily one of his best, but if you want to hear a guitar genius check out Bucketheads latest releases! There's nobody out there that sounds like BH!
