Editorial Reviews

Some of these 32 tracks are reflective ballads, more are raging rockers (often laced with a devilish sense of humor)-and all abound in guitar pyrotechnics that only could have come from the mind and fingers of Steve Vai! These take us from his arrival in the '80s into the new millennium: Liberty; Die to Live; Salamanders in the Sun; The Animal; The Riddle; Bangkok; Blue Powder; Bad Horsie; Dyin' Day; Feathers; Frank; Ya-Yo Gakk; Jibboom; The Reaper; Essence , and more.

The best musician on our planet. I have seen his live shows numerous times over the past 20 years. With David Lee Roth, his one tour with Whitesnake, several G3 shows and with his own band. His show in Vegas @ The House of Blues was incredible. Billy Sheehan on bass! Incredible!

If you like guitar then you can not go wrong listening to Steve Vai. He is truly one of the best.

Please be advised that this is just a re-release of the "Steve Vai Anthology" from 2003. Shame on me for not checking the track list before I purchased it. But I assumed that since the track list from the recent "Essential Joe Satriani" differed from the "Electric Joe Satriani: An Anthology" from 2003, this release would have a revised track list too.

That being said, it is a great Steve Vai compliation, but it already exists.
