Vai can sound a little too flashy and over produced for my tastes, but there are some great tunes on here, especially Greasy Kid's Stuff which always does it for me. Good album. But you consider a long song!? Album Rating: 4. Album Rating: 5. Good review by the way. This Message Edited On Vai is god.
Oh yeah there is. But I just replied to your comment on the latest satch review, so I don't want to look like I'm picking on you or anything I can't get over it This album to me, is guitar Its a musical bible to me, everything about it is just exceptional!
Steve Vai - God? In my opinion, fuck yes. Steve Vai Passion and Warfare 4. Passion and Warfare was Steve Vai's second solo album. Immediatly upon it's realease, Steve Vai was certified as one of the current best guitarists around. The album went Gold, not bad for an album with next to no lyrics. The album is based on dreams that Steve had when he was a teenager. It is a little inaccessible to those niether into heavy metal, or the guitar, but if you are into either, then this album is a great buy.
Liberty- This song is very american and patrotic sounding, a nice opener, but not really a great song in itself. The drums in it are nice though. The guitar lines are nice as well.

He seemed very enthusiastic about getting a record from me but also understood the DLR situation. He rewrote the deal for a substantially better offer. The concepts were bubbling over and driving me crazy. I enjoyed the music I was doing with Dave but he and I started moving in different directions and I felt like there was a larger, other world of music to explore. I was reaching into that secret part of the brain that we all go to for inspiration, and was curious as to if I could make those visions an audible reality.
After parting ways with Roth, I was determined to finish this record. The record was finished between completing the guitar parts for the Whitesnake record and doing the Whitesnake tour.
I called Capitol Records to tell them I was ready to turn in the record and finally get paid but the entire staff had turned around again and now Joe Smith was no longer the President. Coming and going, going and coming, fired and hired and always expected to do a better job than the previous person.
I was introduced to Simon Potts over the phone. He requested I send him a tape. Now, you could literally almost see Capitol Records from my house so I sent Pam my sister and secretary at the time over with a cassette and she put it right on their desk.
We called and they said they lost the tape or never received it, so we sent another. Later we got a call from Business Affairs who said not only do they want to change the deal and give me only half of what the contract advance should have been, but they were just going to put this record out and not promote it. The tape I sent over was drastically different then the music that was popular at the time. But if they do like it, they will do everything to make it work.
In this situation I was going in as a stranger to people who were not particularly fond of instrumental music. The point was that I was a sensitive artist that felt like he had an important piece of work, even though the rest of the world would probably not care for it. I requested a release from the label and they let me go. Cliff Cultreri who took Flex-Able and sold it years before informed me that Relativity Records would love to release it.
Relativity at the time was a very small independent label, but Cliff, more then anyone else I knew at any label, was and still is a music lover.

Vai hat den Kopf voller Ideen, die wohl über die reine Musik hinaus gehen, aber seine Stimme ist die Gitarre. Wenn man sich so eine Musik anhört und sich bewusst wird, was für ein Genie das hervorgebracht hat, dann wird schnell klar, dass es kaum zu bewerten ist/5().
