Maybe most horrible cover ever, I'm embarrassed for Yngwie, and Ripper Owens is his usual no talent self (but at least he is no longer bringing Judas Priest down, I'm so thankful). Makes me appreciate Eddie V & the perv-Michael J. that much more. Totally out of sync.I don't know why they put this embarrassing garbage out. Not everything needs to be played faster than anyone has ever played it before Yngwie!

Genius and Insanity are close bedfellows! Not my cup of tea I'll stick with the original.

That was horrible. Really messy and I agree too fast for the sake of just being fast. I need to go listen to the original and get this bad taste out of my mouth.

Sounds like a worn and stretched tape. Great guitarist and vocalist but frankly I wouldn't know what this was if it weren't for the vocals.

Original is way better! Yngwie's solos are exercises in ego- speed for the sake of speed. No feel! Eddie has consummate taste and feel as well as chops! Yngwie lacks the first two and is therefore inferior to Eddie.

The truly sad thing is that Yngwie showed a lot of promise with Alcatrazz on No Parole for Rock N Roll! He had God given talent in spades. But since that album, he has proven that what the Lord giveth can be taken away!
