5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Vai with All the Unpredictable Twists!, 14 Jan 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Fire Garden (Audio CD)
This is in the same sort of vain as Passion & Warfare. Complex, orchestrated tracks, with brilliant playing. It opens with "There's a Fire in the House" and it captures all the urgency of someone running around in a blazing house! Cryin' Machine is a little like Santana, and Dying Day is beautifully sweet with its altered tunings and sentimental playing. It suggests a conversation between a boy and his dying father. "Hand on Heart"is another beautifuly constructed piece of music which always brings a tear to my eyes."The Fire Garden Sweet"is not for the faint hearted but it's worth trying to get your head round. Part 2 of the album features some of Vai's songs. He underwent some special training to improve his voice and his singing is really quite good-clean and precise as opposed to "rawk"! "All About Eve" is wonderful with it's lydian sound giving it an otherworldly atmosphere. I also love "Brother" but then I'm a sentimantalist! Again, this is a superb Vai album. The singing on part two may not be to everyones taste, but the instrumental part one alone makes this CD worth buying.
