Didn’t know Cried was a Malmsteen fan.
Most of the Malmsteen track is pretty average but the guitar mid-section elevates it beyond either Blaze (respectable but not that special) &/or Statovarious (pretty average*). I'm quite fond of Maiden's SoL though; so their SoL trumps all the rest.Malmsteen's and Strato's keyboarder are one and the same person.
Blaze - Speed of Light > Stratovarius - Speed of Light > Iron Maiden - Speed of Light > Malmsteen - Faster than the Speed of Light
* What are you hearing in this track? Literally nothing of any interest happens.
