I have everything on my iPod. I put the vocalist in parenthesis so I can keep track of who songs on what.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

I've kind of taken to just making a play list of the instrumental stuff.  I like Odyssey, because I like JLT, but some of the other vocalists are, well, not bad, but don't knock my socks off.   I'd rather listen to him play guitar, honestly.

I'm not sure I could hear a bunch of straight instrumentals. I only listen to Marching Out and Rising Force, occasionally pulling out Odyssey or Perpetual Flame. If I listen to anything else, it would be with purpose to follow up on a discussion like this.

The JSS thread became a MAlmsteen thread.

That's because he ( JSS ) did a fantastic job on those albums. And at a time when Yng was inspiring a retirement movement of the guitar heros of the time ( pre car accident Skinny Yngwie , not the bumbling angry large fellow we have come to know and love ). Somewhere on the Tube there is a compilation of the Alcatrazz No Parole solo's , they are still incredible.

To bring the topic back on point, I've listened to the first couple of songs of the new JSS album and so far so good, quite cracking stuff.  Howie is a monster on the axe.

Honestly I didn't even check anything out. It was probably when he did Perpetual Flame, that I ended going back through his discog.

Seventh Sign, Magnum Opus and Facing the Animal are worthwhile.  Alchemy is my fav but I know it's not rated very highly with others.

All of this is correct. Particularly the last bit 😀

Donít judge Facing The Animal by the first track, it gets awesome after that

I was torn between the thread veering off topic ( again ) and not knowing who was being referenced . I searched the available emoji's and selected that one to represent " with a slack jaw and not much to say " .

Maximum Security is an amazing TMac album. I think I'd still take Edge os Sanity over it though, but its close.

I like EOI with Steve Smith and Sheehan better as well. Maximum has a better sound overall and Tmac 's playing may be a scoch better. He changed the game in many ways , and an awesome keyboard to go along with. It was the album I was listening to when I created this account , so I just ran with it.

Nice man.  I find TMac underrated in general, he's as good and better than most shredders out there, especially back in the day.  He simply has the perfect mix of shred and melody with phrasing to boot.
