Michael Schenker "Instrumental Reality"
Review: Here I sit listening to Michael Schenker’s NEW CD “Instrumental Intensity” for like the 5th or 6th time and I must say that this is truly the perfect Michael Schenker Album for you Schenker Fans and beyond. Of course if you like the Scorpions, the MSG Group, and UFO, then this instrumental album will be a real treat for your euro rock-metal ears. When I listen to Michael’s arrangements, melodies, and rhythmic hooks, I want to start delving more into his musical history and influences… If you listen closely, you can hear his German musical heritage and classical influences, and here is the way I put it to those who don’t know of Michael Schenker’s muse…
tell them like this… Before there was Eddie Van Halen,
Adrian Vandenberg, Yngwie Malmsteen, John Sykes, Kirk Hammett
and the like, there was Euro-Guitar Master Michael Schenker
leading the pack. There is no doubt in my military mind that
these cats were influenced by Michael’s playing in some
form or fashion with his flashy extended minor scale runs.
In addition, w/ his use of lighting fast pentatonics, uncanny
phrasing, memorable hooks and riffs. Mr. Schenker is one of
those guitarists who have help shape another musical sound
and direction in the annals of rock music history… There
have been many bands who have crafted their songs and melodies
in this type of widened harmonic fashion and musical bearing.
Stars: I truly give this Album 4.5 Starz
