Favorite Semi Instrumental Album :

Adrian Galysh - Tone Poet - review - buy it Here
Adrian's album Tone Poet, contained half vocalized track and the other half are guitar instrumentals. This unfortunately make him 'half-disqualified' from the guitar shred instrumental album. But his half instrumental tracks really paid off the situation and make it high for guitar fans. Check him out as well for this awesome album.
