3 stars a guitar album,but with progressive elements..this is one of the best albums of the vai me,this album is the whole experience that vai make to his own learning from zappa and satriani..and indeed creates a good album..this is an intrumental album..from a guy student of berklee school..if you already have listen to vinnie moore,yngwie malmsteen,jason becker and joe will not be disapoinment with this one..the diference of vai to satriani is the musical aspect..while de musi of satriani is more rock/intrumental... The music of vai is more progressive than satriani and learning from zappa make his music more complete.with more keyboards section..and with more jazz/ fusion elements.. steve vai in this album shows his great talent on the electric guitar..he have a lot of feeling,and make the guitar talk and cry...diferent to malmsteen his not allways playing fast..what makes the listener getting bored.if we talk about guitar players.we have to talk of hendrix,page,and blackmore..but the great influence of this guitar player was also eddie van halen..talking in the tap/finger technic..who someone said to me that steve hacket do it before..i dont care..this albums deserve the credits of all the new guitar players around the world..because they are influenced by this album and by this artist..the best song on this album is For the love of god...what a feeling have this one..this one is the expression of how to play the guitar and make it sing...anothers ones is the riddle and blue powder.they also are very great..

good album..i recommend another guitar player called Greg howe..

Keep on the good work..
