aBout this album
Surfing with the Alien is the second album by instrumental rock solo artist Joe Satriani, released in 1987. Surfing with the Alien contributed greatly to establishing Satriani’s reputation as a respected rock guitarist. In terms of critics and listener polls, Surfing with the Alien is Joe Satriani’s most successful and most critically acclaimed album.
The album contains fast and complex songs such as “Surfing with the Alien” and
“Satch Boogie” in addition to the stranger-sounding “Crushing Day” and “Lords of Karma”, in contrast to slower, melodic songs like “Always with Me, Always with You” and “Echo” which provide a change of pace.
