6. Trilogy Suite Op. 5 (Trilogy, 1986)

“It’s Trilogy Suite Opus 5, it’s the best there is to offer. While it’s mostly a live track with the breaks in the song for Yngwie to absorb the glory, the solid chunks of it are the most iconic of all his instrumental, and truly describes his style.”

5. Dream On (This Is ’80s Hair Metal, 2003)

“Aerosmith original is an all time favorite of mine but I honestly think this cover version is better – better vox and guitars.”

4. I Am a Viking (Marching Out, 1985)

“Best overall song. Great solos with a super awesome riff to bang your head to. The song is so epic, it’s nearly unbearable! Do yourself a favor and listen to this song.”

3. Rising Force (Rising Force, 1984)

“This is the song that Blackmore would have been proud of — sensational soloing in a great tune. The whole of this album is great, but this song kicks it off in amazing style”

2. Far Beyond the Sun (Trial by Fire: Live in Leningrad, 1989)

“Black Star is a beautiful instrumental, I Am A Viking is beast, and Rising Force is a cool song, but Far Beyond The Sun is a masterpiece. #1 to me personally. Best solos. Such a crazy song. And one of the best instrumentals ever. Great guitarist Yngwie is.”

1. Black Star (Trial by Fire: Live in Leningrad, 1989)

“This masterpiece has amazingly complex alt picking downscales, and crazy sweeps here and there. Not only is this work of art hard to play its also so melodic. I’m sure Yngwie Malmsteen put lots of time into this composition and made his best.
