Unlike most records in the Best (insert whatever genre here) Ever! series, this compilation actually lives up to its name. Starting off right away with one of the most beloved rock anthems (Queen's "We Are the Champions") and working its way through so many memorable guitar moments, The Best Air Guitar Album in the World...Ever! is a relentless 19-song assault on the ears and soul of even the most die-hard rock & roll fan. The sole complaint about the disc is that it favors the radio edit of the Knack's "My Sharona" over the extended version, which contains one of the most blistering, frenzied guitar solos in the history of rock & roll. Listening to this, even the most die-hard rock & roll purists will be striking up their best Angus Youngs or Pete Townshends in the privacy of their own homes. A class effort all the way through.
