2 stars Steve Vai, despite my full collection of his solo albums, has never been in my attention because I typically do not like music which demonstrates the ego of the artist especially in playing his instrument. In the case of Vai, I do not like the over play of guitar throughout his compositions. This is not only to Vai, but also to other soloist like John Petrucci who also composed music based on his ego and do not let other musicians to perform their skills. I have the CD of this Flex-able Leftovers for years already and it has never been spun fairly from my players. I did try it some days ago and I find some interesting songs like the opening track "*&^# yourself" which reminds me to the music of Frank Zappa. No wonder because Steve was from Frank Zappa band previously. In terms of composition this song has weird style with unique grooves. There is interesting guitar solo which does not take that long (thanks God!).

Other track that I think is good as well is "Massacre". It demonstrates how Steve is an excellent musician with greak guitar playing skills. As this CD is containing leftovers you might imagine that some songs are probably not qualified to be included in the full fledge album.

Overall, it's a good album and it might satisfy those who like guitar-based music like Satriani, Johnson, Petrucci, etc. I consider this is a good collection for collectors.

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

3 stars The original version of this album was a limited issue 10" EP. All of the songs from that EP are on this album, plus a few more unreleased tracks from Mr. Vai's vaults. Like any album of remnants, there are some good pieces and some bad pieces. But nothing spectacular.

There are some nods to Frank Zappa. #?@! Yourself is the most obvious, and very funny. San Sebastian, and instrumental, has a very Zappa-like feel. And Bledsoe Bluvd, with Tommy Mars, is very good. Details at 10, an indictment of newscasters, with it's pseudo- reggae beat, also has some Zappa-esque qualities.

A couple of songs, So Happy and Little Pieces of Seaweed, babble on too long before Vai starts showing off his guitar imitation of spoken word, and the pieces get kind of silly, then boring. And a few poppy songs at the end fall flat.

But Vai is just too creative for these leftovers to not hold some interest. So three stars.
