Steve Vai

"Fire Garden"

The Story
"Fire Garden", the 1996 release from virtuoso Steve Vai, contains about half instrumental songs (Phase 1) and half vocal tunes (Phase 2), hooked together by some computer-altered vocal chatter, essentially a double CD packed into one disc. As Vai states, "Being as dense as it is, this CD may best be experienced by devouring it in pieces, but those with a strong constitution may dare to consume it whole as it is." Regardless, "Fire Garden" contains examples of some of Steve's heaviest music to date, and shows ample evidence that he will continue to grow and stretch musically in the future.
