After taking it in the teeth from two of the '80s greatest young guitar heroes, Yngwie Malmsteen and Steve Vai (both of whom performed on but one Alcatrazz album each, before abandoning ship for greater solo glory), vocalist Graham Bonnett decided to anchor 1986's Dangerous Games to a slightly less gifted, but much better traveled guitar wiz in the plainly named Danny Johnson (ex-Rick Derringer, Rod Stewart, Alice Cooper, Blackfoot, etc.). Unfortunately, ironically, and through no fault of Johnson's, just when Bonnett regained control of his own group, Alcatrazz wound up delivering their least distinctive album; more consistent, perhaps, than the previous year's idiosyncratic but frankly song-challenged Disturbing the Peace (Steve Vai defined), but also "safer" and utterly subservient to the 1980s' soulless mainstream rock conventions.

No Parole from Rock 'n' Roll was the first album by the American heavy metal band Alcatrazz led by veteran singer Graham Bonnet, released in 1983. It spent seven weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart, peaking at No. 128. It is considered by fans of the group to be the best Alcatrazz release and launched guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen into a glittering solo career. The album is most famous for the singles "Island in the Sun" and "Jet to Jet". Other notable offerings are "Hiroshima Mon Amour", "General Hospital" and "Incubus", a solo by Yngwie J. Malmsteen he continued to play during his solo career.

Live Sentence (1984) was the only live album released by Graham Bonnet's Alcatrazz (excluding posthumous releases) and contains some of the songs performed by Bonnet in his time with Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. The live show was recorded at the Nakano Sun Plaza in Tokyo on January 28, 1984 and was based on their previous album No Parole From Rock N' Roll and had the same lineup. According to Billboard, the album spent 16 weeks on the chart and peaked at No. 133.

In 1983, just about every up-and-coming hard rock guitarist was mesmerized by – and copying – Eddie Van Halen's two-handed tapping technique. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, came Yngwie Malmsteen, who introduced "classical metal" to the masses. Before making a name for himself as a solo artist, Yngwie was briefly a member of L.A. rockers Alcatrazz, which resulted in a studio album (1983's No Parole from Rock 'n' Roll) and a live album (1984's Live Sentence). But come 2010, an archival live album appeared from the band (from the "Yngwie era"), Live '83. As its title states, the album is comprised of live performances from the same year that Alcatrazz's debut album was released, and will certainly be of interest for longtime Yngwie fans.

Though blessed with a potent voice, Alcatrazz leader (and purported star) Graham Bonnet was heavily dependent on the songwriting skills of his cohorts. Each album is therefore a reflection of the particular guitarist involved, resulting in a stylistic inconsistency that failed to attract a loyal following for the band. As such, their 1983 debut No Parole from Rock'n'Roll sounds a lot like guitarist Yngwie J. Malmsteen's later solo albums.

With the departure of Yngwie Malnsteen, Steve Vai moves in to handle the axe duties for Alcatrazz on their follow up to a pretty sucessful No Parole From Rock and Roll. Vai wastes no time in making his mark. Gone are Malmsteen's classical runs and Blackmore riffs and in is Vai's weirdo note bending and blazing runs that are really the opposite of the Malmsteen style. But it works. It works because Vai works within the song structure and the songs are good enough to stand on their own. Vai just makes them a bit more interesting. High spots are 'Mercy", 'Sons and Lovers", 'will you be home tonight' and 'stripper' . Low spots are "Desert Diamond' and "Skyfire'. Steve Vai has always seemed to be a guitarist without any soul to his playing, no matter how technical it can be. Here he comes close to playing with soul, but again its all in the songs.

Heavy Metallized Hard Rock combo with Graham Bonnet on vocals and Yngwie Malmsteen on guitar was short lived but left a few albums, like this first one "No parole from Rock 'n' Roll", quite an interesting exercise of proto baroque metal. You can hear lots of Malmsteen's classical influences, but here those fit the feel of the album very naturally. Graham Bonnet's approach to vocals is also unique. Great album with no filler.

Though blessed with a potent voice, Alcatrazz leader (and purported star) Graham Bonnet was heavily dependent on the songwriting skills of his cohorts. Each album is therefore a reflection of the particular guitarist involved, resulting in a stylistic inconsistency that failed to attract a loyal following for the band. As such, their 1983 debut No Parole from Rock'n'Roll sounds a lot like guitarist Yngwie J. Malmsteen's later solo albums. Still, this is an excellent record, successfully fusing Bonnet's tuneful screaming, Jimmy Waldo's tasteful Rainbow-derived keyboard textures, and Malmsteen's blinding dexterity and speed. The nearly perfect "Island in the Sun" is the album's absolute high point, and it's a wonder the song didn't become a huge hit. And while "Jet to Jet" sounds like little more than a Rainbow outtake, the epic "Kree Nakoorie" showcases Malmsteen and Waldo at their best. Other highlights include the amusing "Too Young to Die, Too Drunk to Live" and "Bigfoot," with its scorching Malmsteen riff. In short, a fine record that any hard rock enthusiast will appreciate.
