VINE VOICEon 13 July 2007
This is a fantastic DVD featuring three of the truly great rock guitarists of our time. Each individual set is fairly short, 3 songs each for Vai & Satriani, with the new boy in terms of the G3 format, Petrucci, showcasing two tracks from his (relatively) recently released solo album.
All three sets are excellent, although a couple of the Vai tracks are probably neither his best known nor best loved tracks. In the overall context, though, that doesn't really matter as any song he performs manages to show what an amazing musician he is.
For those unfamiliar with John Petrucci, he is Dream Theater's guitarist and he has every right to be on stage with Vai & Satriani. He is a technical master but also capable of playing with plenty of feel.
The highlight of this disc has to be the three-song jam at the end. It is quite simply jawdropping. Expect a barrage of completely over the top playing which will bring a smile to your face every time. Each guitarist amazes at different points but, for me, Vai just about takes 1st prize due to his sheer inventiveness.
This DVD is a must for all rock guitar lovers, particularly given the silly asking price. Highly recommended.

This isnt the best G3 release in my opinion but at this price you can't not buy it.

The main highlight of this disk is the 3 song Jam at the end, with a great rendition of Smoke on the Water. I like the cool way the 3 guitarists all take little pieces of Blackmore's original solo and interpret it in their own styles.

Excellent value

This must be the BEST G3 ever. Partially due to the fact that I love Dream Theater, Joe Satriani, and Steve Vai. I have watched all G3s to date (that came out on DVD or were on the net), and this is definately without a doubt the best (I say again!)!

Petrucci opens with Glasgow Kiss, off his individual album - true Petrucci style, the mix of melodies with the right amount of crazy legato and shredding. Vai follows with an even insaner act than he usually puts on, trully defying the laws of physics and ignoring what should be possible to do with a guitar, (save eating it). Satriani brings his Is There Love in Space album to the stage, with typical Satriani legato and screaming guitar sounds. The G3 jam at the end CANNOT BE MISSED if you miss any of it. The Jam includes some of the best and most famous rock songs ever written, and the supporting band are incredible, with Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater on drums, and ofcourse Sheehan, Vai's bassist.

I will watch this many many times and it won't get boring - the G3 lineup 2005 is the most perfect balance in guitarist styles ever to hit the stage. If you like Satriani, or Vai, or Petrucci, or even just the guitar itself... GET THIS.

This does exactly what it says on the tin.

Would have been five stars but for the fact that Satriani is inaudible in the jam at the end. A shame.

Buyers should be careful when reading the reviews here as most are from the Denver show which featured different songs and different guitarists. These reviews should not be here, it's not like a reprint of a book. Malmsteen does NOT appear on this Tokyo DVD.
