Whispering a Prayer Disc 2 1. This multi-album deal marks a homecoming for Vai, who set the standard for rock instrumental music across a series of albums released through Relativity and Epic Records, from 1990's Passion and Warfare through 2007's Sound Theories, Vol. From the moment he took the stage, through to the end. Can you please help me? Thank you for being so professional, patient and kind, Fab. They add cohesion to the whole narration, making it more like a real story instead of simply a visual account of the show. Salamanders In the Sun 1:11 6. Build Me a Song L.
I love the fact that Steve's shows are long and the extra footage is great. This is symbolically reflected on the cover, too. Philip's intro solo to The Moon and I is a favorite moment, too. The Moon and I 11. The Audience Is Listening 14.
To the converted, it is certainly a good reason to dive into this generous live set. First, I find the title so beautiful and appropriate, pointing to the flowing of consciousness into the doing, the space where inner and outer purpose merge. Yes I have seen far better concert footage from other artists, but then that usually means limited special features. It just didn't seem like it was needed - especially considering this plus The Space Between the Notes totals around 4 hours on one disk. Sony Music Entertainment and Legacy Recordings have signed Steve Vai to a new multi-album agreement that includes plans to issue two new Vai sets in 2015, beginning with Stillness in Motion: Vai Live in L. Get an afternoon off and indulge in this release. See our , our current and for upcoming releases! The Audience Is Listening 2.
In August 2012, Vai embarked on a two-year world tour that took him to places as diverse as France, Israel, Mexico, Japan and Russia. I imagine this is because of trying to get it all on the two disc. Build Me a Song L. I may be biased but I would have loved to see more footage of Australia included. Check out the news section.
Loving the concert - it's a great set. It was the 49th show from Vai's Story of Light World Tour. There's only one or two things that bugged me. The Space Between the Notes is also a nice touch and a chance to see what you wouldn't at a concert. How many things they must have seen, how much craziness they must have come across!! I wish it had been three disks and included The Still Small Voice, The End of the World and Expanding the Universe - but the cost of recording that is probably huge. That I have a small brain?? The music is on point, the stage show is entertaining, by far Vai's best tour yet! One is all the beautiful places you get to see.
Although I watched the whole 2 disks in one sitting not knowing until it was over! This is, for want of a better word, something of an extravaganza: 22 tracks over the course of 130 minutes, Vai dipping into nearly every phase of his career. There are a few aspects that emerge throughout the documentary that I'd like to point out. It's amazing to also hold the booklet, look at the map and reflect on what a journey this must have been for the Vai band and crew. What it has instead is fluidity: Vai and his backing band may specialize in pyrotechnics, but there's a grace to the playing on even the frenetic numbers, and that lyricism may be eye-opening to skeptics. We offer a great range, great service and fast shipping. It's great to get another full concert release especially as I didn't make it to a show on this tour. I don't believe anyone has done that not that I have seen anyway you actually begin to feel you are along the road with them.
However, treasures like 'Whispering A Prayer', 'For The Love Of God and 'The Audience Is Listening' were also incorporated from previous albums as was 'The Ultra Zone'. However and more importantly musically it is the best live release Vai has to offer - there's just no beating the sheer quality and musicianship, its astounding! The hi hat could have done with being mixed a little lower, and the bass drum mic'd a little better, but it doesn't really effect the overall sound. The Ultra Zone 7:36 9. But of course, I'm loving watching Steve. And he does it beautifully.
Its not terrible by any means, I personally just preferred the cinematic quality of the last release. Steve,Pia,Fire and Julian are such a photogenic family, it is great to see their strong bond. The man is absolutely spellbinding! I imagine this is because of trying to get it all on the two disc. The Moon and I 7:02 10. It gives a warm, familial impression of the whole thing, but at a whopping 3. Some of these songs I forgot to mention Taurus Bulba! If any other guitarist had created an album of this quality, I would give it four stars, but since this one is a half-step down from what I think is Vai's best, I must rate it 3.
It's amazing to see how much everyone in the band especially Jeremy and Dave has grown in musical sensibility over the years, and it's good to see Steve interacting with and giving space to everyone onstage. Rescue Me or Bury Me 16. Cookies used for the essential operation of the site have already been set. Rescue Me or Bury Me 5:18 3. It's good to see Andy in the audience, too.
