Not long after that, and David Lee Roth released Skyscraper, and I found out Vai was playing guitar on that album. Fantastic album! Great stuff!
So when Vai came out with Passion & Warfare my Senior in High School, I was ready and waiting. It was a perfect and beautiful album. From the powerful Liberty and Animal, to the beautiful Ballerina and Alien Water Kiss, to the fun The Audience Is Listening, I think that this album has a lot to offer everyone. There are some great ballads and some real rippers. But not a bad track on the whole album. Great highway music in the summertime with the windows down and the music blaring.
What sucks is that I can't find ANY additional material to put on this album. Not a single demo or mix. NOTHING! So, you get the album, that's it. Sorry. I kept the cover the same because of that fact. I'd be a dumbass to change up the cover of an album that's stayed the same.
Steve's work is great, but I feel he's been a bit spotty on his albums. I know of a hundred tracks I like, but Passion & Warfare is the only album of his that I feel stands solid together. Regardless, he is and always will be my most favorite guitarist ever.
