    Uli Jon Roth's Electric Sun continued to display mind-blowing guitar work -- along with the leader's vocal inadequacies -- on the power trio's sophomore outing, 1980's Fire Wind. And as for Roth's Hendrix fixation, "I'll Be Loving You Always" lifted melodies from both "The Wind Cries Mary" and "Angel," while the nearly 11-minute "Hiroshima" -- spine-tingling as it was as a guitar-playing showcase -- essentially represented the German guitarist's personal take on Hendrix's "Machine Gun." In broader terms, the heartfelt messages parlayed by Roth's flower-power lyrics lost their significance when sung in a style reminiscent of Frank Zappa's comedy routines -- an inevitable byproduct of his deficient vocal talents. Even so, the album had an undeniable highlight in energetic opening rocker "Cast Away Your Chains," which overwhelmed any vocal failings with a solo and extended coda as good as guitar shredding has ever been. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
