Yngwie and Randy!
Vai - PAW
Satriani - Surfing and Flying in a Blue Dream (even tho he says he doesn’t play shred)
I still think Steve Vai - Passion and Warfare is the greatest shred album of all time, personally.
If I had to limit myself to one album per player...
Vai's "Alien Love Secrets," with the caveat that "Passion and Warfare" is probably the more "important" album.
Satriani's "Crystal Planet," again with the caveat that while it sounds dated, "Surfing with the Alien" is the more "important" album for the impact it had.
Andy Timmons - "Resolution"
Tony Macalpine - "Maximum Security"
Jason Becker's "Perpetual Burn" is nuts, even if the tones and mix leave a bit to be desired
Shawn Lane's "Powers of Ten"
Vinnie Moore's "The Mind's Eye"
Nick Johnston's "Remarkably Human"
Angel Vivaldi's "Away With Words"
Neil Zaza's "Staring at the Sun"
Eric Johnson - any of his live albums, but "Alien Love Child - Live and Beyond" is an easy starting point
Steve Morse - "High Tension Wires"
Yngwie Malmsteen - "Rising Force"
John Petrucci - "Suspended Animation"

Steve Stevens "Memory Crash"

Becker - perspectives
Vai - p&w
Gilbert - racer x street lethal
Yngwie - debut
Vinnie Moore minds eye
No Holdsworth fans on here? I have some of his earlier stuff, Sand and Metal Fatigue plus a few others. Actually must dig them out...ridiculously good player.
Pretty much everything this guy said. I grew up on these, and a lot of people complained about Mind’s Eye being to sterile, but his playing was so incredibly clean on that album.
How did I forget Allan!?
I don't usually listen to him for extended periods of time but he's a killer player and wrote some killer songs.
man....this reminds me of the time i almost bought a purple Ibanez 6 string from him a few years ago. he was selling it for a very fair price and if i hadn't already bought 2 other guitars that month i could have had it in my collection. i think someone on sso may have picked it up, anyone know who?
