Doppler, Inc - Nu Instrumental Review
by Joannie Foney

Who is Doug Doppler & why did he release this CD? DD is the best student of Joe Satriani, a guy so talented that Satch picked him to take over teaching for him so he could go on tour. This is a CD worth listening to. His sound is subtly influenced by Satriani & Steve Vai, so he lacks the stench of a rip off artist. You'll find no fragrant 'Eau de Kirk Hammet sampling Satriani' here, just original songs highlighting DD's talent.

Some of the songs sounded like they had synthesizers in them, but rest assured, supposedly it's all him on his guitar. Though all of these songs are instrumentals, all are catchy & engaging. This CD isn't a 'welcome to my guitar recital', with one technically superb but boring track after another, this is a CD of weight & relevance. Doppler so impressed musicians like Stu Hamm, Billy Sheehan and Brad Gillis that they all make guest appearances on this debut CD.

The album seamlessly combines the grains & specks & flecks of what's good about nu metal with old metal & instrumentals, hence the title. Unfortunately, for his next endeavor, he envisions working with modern pop tards of the day, like Christina & whoever else will be trendy in a coupla years. Given that, buying this CD is a great idea, hurry & get 'em before they're gone!!

This is a CD that musicians will love, but even non-musical types won't find much to criticize on here.

This is a 5 star CD, based on his blinding talent. Catch him on the G3 circuit this fall, with Joe Satriani, Steve Vai & Yngwie Malmsteen
