Nice one - guitar play is so intricate and projects a laid back feeling to a crazy extent - I think this is a strong candidate + possibly Otherside which had a bit of an edgy melancholy to it - Also i am aware that my response to Rah's earlier point might be a bit late but here goes - Smells Like Teen Spirit is one of the great songs because it was such a commercial success and it sold the greatest album of all time 'Nevermind' - without it we might never have heard of Nirvana - it embodies the mood of the album and the album itself - imagine Nevermind without SLTS - c'mon u can't be serious !!!!!!!!!!
nirvana fans who claim nevermind is their best because its commercial aren't nirvana fans. nevermind is little more than a pop album, the songs are good but lack the depth of in utero

it's not a bad song but there is little special about it. to say it's their best would just be plain wrong.

i'll stop now before my inner musical snob makes itself further known

I take ur point Rah because i am a musical snob as well - I agree that in utero does have far more depth because of songs like serve the servants and heartshaped-box (and lest we forget rape me) which were truly insightful - however what a lot of people will remember about the 90s is that opening riff to the 'Nevermind' album contained within SLTS - for those who arent true Nirvana fans (I pity them) they will be able to look back nostalgically at the 90s as the grunge era because of that song - but as a hardcore Nirvana fan for whom SLTS has grown too familiar (familiarity breeds contempt) I feel there are better songs than SLTS that Nirvana should be remembered for

Jimi made his guitar speak - woah that was mind-bending music he played - and u know why he will remain unique forever - he could play amazing riffs that no one else could ever play courtesy of the monstrous size of his hands! - has anyone seen footage of 1967 (I think?) Woodstock when he was playing Purple Haze - jeez louise - lol = good call cornholio

http://www.all-reviews.com/music/spe...l-symphony.htm

"Two young guitar prodigies named Jason Becker and Marty Freidman released "Speed Metal Symphony" in 1987. They called themselves Cacophony. The term cacophony in the dictionary is referred to as harsh noise. The only aspect of this album that is actually harsh is the vocals of Peter Martino. He does his best Rob Halford (Judas Priest) impression to try to match the great speed of light guitar licks of Becker and Freidman. I could appreciate the vocals at times; for the most part the sheer enjoyment I experienced was all of the incredible six-string madness that was going on. The title for this album was no doubt suitable, as it really is a speed metal symphony. I read once that rock and roll is nothing more than Beethoven and Bach played faster. Well here is proof of that statement within this shiny metal disc. Becker and Freidman make no bones about their influence right from the start with the word symphony strategically placed in the title of this release."

Jason Becker was the fastest guitar player in the world.

Have you heard Steve Vai?
