Ok, I just bought Passion and Warfare by Steve Vai and thought it was excellent. I was wondering where to go from there. In addition, this thread can be a general discussion about Mr.Vai.  Any suggestions/thoughts/comments/questions?

If anyone else here is a gamer, check out Mr. Vai's work on the Halo2 soundtrack (which is really quite impressive).

The Steve Vai Anthology is a good album.

Personally, I prefer Marty Friedman for some reason.

"Music For Speeding" had two good songs on it.

But I really like "Dragons Kiss" and find myself listening to this more than any Steve Vai.

I'd get "Fire Garden". The "Bankok" and "Fire Garden Suite" is brilliant (a tad Zappa-ish, like Envelopes from the Arriving to late.. -album)

However, if you wanna mosh out totally you should check out "Sex and Religion" where Dev

I just listened to the entire Passion and Warfare album, just now!  Man an amazing listen I'd say. I didn't quite understand the concept in this album or in some of the songs. Mystifying and it kept me enthu
