See, it usually takes a guitarist (Such as myself) to really appreciate Malmsteen's skill. Lots of people will say his stuff sounds 'plain' or 'repetitive', but his style is brilliant. The reason it's not as colorful as some have hoped is his TONE. Listen carefully to him, and you'll understand. His tone isn't as watered down by effects, like so many others are. One can only assume he's a 'purist', who doesn't appreciate the idea of prettying up his playing with cheap tricks and effects.
