Review of "Passion And Warfare - Steve Vai"
I am a freelance sound engineer/musician currently based in South Wales, but travelling throughout the country. Been away from Ciao for a long while, but back now!
First things first...how come Steve Vai doesn't get his own section here? Never mind...too many people will go 'Who the hell is Steve Vai?' in response...I bought Passion & Warfare 10 years ago, on the strength of Vai's guitar work on Dave Lee Roth's 'Eat 'em and Smile' and 'Skyscraper'; just as I was getting into playing guitar, and instrumental stuff of this nature.
I was blown away. While on first listening, some of the stuff is hard work (Love Secrets, The Riddle) others tracks jumped out straight away.Liberty - if a new country is looking for a new national anthem this should be it...just don't try and play that cadenza..(the music says 'play as fast as possible'...ha!)
For the Love of God - perfect development of a beautiful theme.I Would Love To - The ultimate upbeat guitar tune. If this had lyrics, it would grace any Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Van Halen album as one of the strongest tracks. The fact that it has a crafted solo instead makes is all the better.
Overall, the album leaves you in awe of Vai's playing, and not just the light speed licks and strange noises he can coax out of a guitar, but his fluency and feel on the slower melodic passages.A truly great album
