Re: Album recommendations (McAlpine)
I am a huge fan of his, and the 3 i think are most essential are:
Maximum Security - it's already been talked about
Evolution - this is more fusion, though with elements of neo-classical.
Chromaticity - way more prog
These 3 give you a very brief overview of his career and, well, evolution as a guitarist. most of his albums are pretty good too, though i recommend you stay away from 'freedom to fly' and 'master of paradise.' otherwise though, it's interesting to listen to his albums in order and hear how his genre shifts around a bit, but no matter what he's playing, he sounds 100% like himself.
