This award, given in honor of devotion to little other than guitar acrobatics, goes to:
In Advance of the Broken Arm
Kill Rock Stars
1. The art of Technically and rhythmatically [sic] hammering out amazing and lightning-fast solos on a guitar.
2. To play so amazingly fast on guitar you almost destroy it's strings.
This doesn't fall into the Satriani/Vai category by a long shot: it's too abrasive. But Marnie Stern is here to hit as many harmonics as she can in the time she's allotted on an LP and nothing will stand in her way.
And that's about all there is to say about that.
