Overall The Extremist is one of Joe Satriani‘s best and most focused albums that should never be overlooked just because Surfing With The Alien is simply amazing. It is infested with quality songs and serves as a benchmark in Satriani’s career. […]

Well, there is not much which I don’t like on this album. It’s the song Cryin’. It remembers me too strong on “Rubina” of the “Not Of This Earth” album. So if someone had stolen this album, I would congratulate the thief, because he had gained a wonderful Satriani album; I would also immediately buy me a new one! […]

Entertainment Weekly
Satriani’s metal edge is never sharp to the touchand his creative mettle is modest, but you’ve gotta love his bounding enthusiasm and heartfelt bag of riffs. […]
