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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!!! March 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.
