The Story of Light
|Amazon Price||New from||Used from|
'The Story of Light', a new solo album of original material by virtuoso guitarist and visionary composer Steve Vai. The title comes out on Favored Nations Entertainment, the label Vai founded in 1999. Its sprawling and expressive 12-song set continues a conceptual and cosmic narrative arc begun on the artist's acclaimed 2005 album 'Real Illusions: Reflections'.
Throughout, three-time Grammy winner Vai's lead guitar is as lyrically resonant as it is technically masterful, his licks and solos bending sounds and in listeners' minds in equal measure. 'The Story of Light' follows the journey of a man driven mad by grief, intertwining tragedy, revelation, enlightenment, and redemption.
'I m always pursuing knowledge. I'm a seeker of spiritual equilibrium and music is a big part of that,' says Vai. 'I've been obsessed with these kinds of ideas for years.'

WHY? Why does he insist on singing?
I have no idea what kind of music Vai listens to that sounds anything remotely like the stuff he tends to sing. Read more
And so has Steve. And so have I.
I guess when I think of Steve Vai's music, I want to think of the driving rhythm of "Greasy Kid Stuff", the symphonic... Read more
I truly, truly, deep in my heart feel that Vai hit his signature sound when he released Fire Garden. Every album since then has been some kind of continuation of that sort of vibe. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Mo
