CD Review: Vinnie Moore Showcases His Guitar Skills On "Aerial Visions"

Guitarist extraordinaire Vinnie Moore will be releasing his new solo album "Aerial Visions" on October 23rd. It is his eighth solo album and the first one of new material in six years. Moore used a Pledge Music account to fund his latest release, which allowed fans to be more involved in the creation and distribution of the album. Plus, 10% of the money raised for this album will go toward the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The new ten-song release begins with the up-tempo romp of "Mustang Shuffle" as Moore does not need vocals to portray the song's emotion. He heads into overdrive with the metal groove of "Now's The Time," while "Slam" has a vintage eighties hard rock sound. Moore does a masterful job with his take on ZZ Top's "La Grange" as Moore's guitars blast through the song's driving rhythm. He slows the tempo down with the bluesy "Looking Back," before finishing things up with the seven-minute epic touch of "A Million Miles Gone" as Moore also shows his skills on the acoustic guitar.
Vinnie Moore will be hitting the road at the end of the month with UFO for a two-month tour of Europe. For a complete list of live dates and to find out more about his new album "Aerial Visions," please visit
