    The combination of artists, lawyers, unions and insurance companies means DEATH to any possibility of anything good.

    True. It seems the last person being thought of here is the listener. Just a means to an end: how to get those consumer dollars into their greedy corporate hands. Shouldn’t the music sell itself, as it always has, without gimmickry?

    I don’t give a shit about this album (I listened to it) and other recent Vai stuff. Overblown and too polished. The arrangements sound like coming from a random-push-the-button-automatic-orchestration-software (you can do this with Coda Finale). No human factor. Machine music played by robots. Too many notes – less ideas.

    The bits that are obviously stolen from FZ’s Orchestral Favourites period only reminded me to put that one on again instead.

    Having heard a healthy dose of Vai, I must concur: he seems to’ve had his Eyebrows subjected to digital electrolysis. He urges guitarists to play it until every note is PERFECT … but his own output is a display of the perils of hyper-cleansed guitar. Personally, I’d love to see him do a cover album – but only if someone ELSE picks the songs. Do NOT watch his videos if you seek novelty. The poot-faces are sadly now far past ironic & do nothing to warm the Mach 5 cadenza-thon that HAS to form the nucleus of every last thing he does. Proficiency doesn’t redeem predictability. Listening to something that manic shouldn’t bore me.
