    I bought this damn album cause I thought it was a "best of" album but it turns out that its a collection of all the songs that were track no.7 on his albums. Thats got to be the weirdest idea for an album I have ever heard.
    Is it me or is Vai a fuckin nerd? (first time I ever said the word "nerd" but it fits him perfectly)

    Anyway if anyone has the album or even if you dont its probably on napster, but check out the song "Melissa's Garden" at about 1:20 he breaks into something that sounds EXACTLY like spanish fly before the tapping part.

    I just grabbed that tune off of Napster. What album is it from? The only Vai solo album I have is Passion and Warfare and it sounds like it could have fit in nicely on that album. It also reminds me of Skyscraper (the song). I like hearing more acoustic stuff like that, and I agree it does sound like Spanish Fly.

    It's not on any other album. "The 7th Song" has 3 tracks that were never released but vai didn't say anything about "Melissa's Garden" being written a while back like he does on the other ones so I guess its a new one. Isn't it amazing how much that sounds like "Spanish Fly"? Maybe he did it on purpose as a tribute to King Edward or maybe he's just a hack.

    Now, if Vai would put out a CD greatest hits package that is full of ROCKERS instead of ballads. "Passion & Warfare" is an incredible CD! I love that one BIG time! Has anyone heard that song he does with his kid called "Ya Yo Gak"?? That song cracks me up!

    Yeah Cabo I have Ya Yo Gakk. I remember the first time I heard it I thought what the hell was that? LOL! Now I like it though.

    Vai's best solo albums are Passion And
    Warfare and Alien love Secrets IMO.

    His best song he played on is of course,,,,Yankee Rose!

    I watched Crossroads last night. Steve Vai is cool in that movie!!!

    I think Vai's guitar playing ranks him near the top of the world but his solo albums since "passion and warfare" should have had him dropped in to obscurity from all record labels. His solo work has been terrible!

    i started a thread on this a while back.

    the album sucks. why reease those three new songs with all that other stuff. vai is losing me man. he has gone so far down hill, i cannot believe it. he hasn't done anything worthwhile since alien love secrets.

    he's out there man
