Alcatrazz with Yngwie might have been a better long-term fit had Yngwie been able to check his ego at the door and work within a group format. This album was a better, but even though Steve Vai is brilliant here, it just passes me by. I think you would probably like this Alcatrazz album if you like heavey metal.

REVIEW: Alcatrazz – Disturbing the Peace () |

I guess no one bothered to listen to the finished product. And why did they change the cover? See all 28 reviews. But like at least one other reviewer mentioned: I doubt it, but hey, people re-record stuff all the time these days.

Steve Vai is a phenomenal guitarist and you can hear that by listening to this album. I am always in favour of songs about Big Foot. I must stress though, that I feel Yngwie’s playing fit Alcatrazz better than Vai, though there’s more “playful” elements to Vai’s fretboard gymnastics.


Might be able to get it in Toronto on vinyl for that price. Vai and mediocre playing by the other alcatgazz produced a sub par album and the band was down towards demise. Wow–I’d forgotten how great this album is!! alcatrazz disturbing the peace

Disturbing the Peace (album) – Wikipedia

I think because of Vai’s presence and how Vai loves to add keyboards to his own music to a good effectI think he felt like stepping things up would help out. It will not disappoint! Write your own review. Disturbing The Peace “Please retry”. I still remember listening to this on vinyl when it came out in ’85,and my jaw just dropped as I heard these tunes! When he tries alcatrazz disturbing the peace solo like the Steve Vai that we know and love today, it just sounds painfully sub par for Vai standards.

Are they for real?

Alcatrazz is a wlcatrazz known band that is pretty much only known as being key milestones for the careers of two of the most acclaimed guitarists the world has ever seen, Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai. His keyboard playing reminds me of Jonathan Cains the keyboard player for Journey. Bonnet sings along with it.

I also enjoyed the album he did with Joe Lynn Turner, name of which is escaping me now. The remastering work is stellar too. I think anyone who’s listened to Vai before only needs one listen of Disturbing the Alcatrazz disturbing the peace to get the idea. At times, it seems he’s trying way too hard, almost shouting, to hit that high note. Even the dragonfire cannot withstand an electric guitar played by a Swede. Unforgivable, but I only bought this for the live CD anyway.

Zappa made a point of introducing and praising Vai both times and let him come out front and shine a few times during each show.
