  • This song is in the key of B, said Paul Gilbert. Is it about a real spaceship, or his car? Who knows, and when you can play guitar like this, who cares? The title track from this CD is simply an ego trip to exhibit the fretboard wizardry of one of the fastest guitarists on Earth. It was apparently recorded "live" in the studio; Gilbert, his drummer and bass player were dressed in space suits during the video they made for it, and were clearly having fun. >>
