5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, pure and not so simple!, 16 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Fire Garden (Audio CD)
This album contains some of the best guitar tones ever recorded and anyone serious about playing modern rock guitar music should do themsleves a favour and buy this. It kicks off with the Satriani-esque There's a fire in the house. It's a great song to wake you up in the morning! Phase 1 contains many different musical styles, ranging from melodic rock to hard rock to uncomprimising industrial, the list goes on. Phase 1 ends with the mammoth Fire Garden Suite which manages to cram all these musical styles into a 10 minute masterpiece which i'm sure would even leave frank zappa scratching his head. Phase 2 shows that Vai can write some cool ass riffs and lyrics and not just blistering guitar instrumentals. The album is structured in an unusual way to begin with but after the Fire Garden Suite, Vai seems to let you down slowy until the final song, Warm Regards. The song has a mysterious christmas feel which make you feel warm and cozy and is a fantastic way to end an album which is quite hectic in places. Overall this is a very unique album from a very unique musician. Even if you aren't a guitarist i would still reccomend it if you like great music!
