The 7th Song
Steve Vai explains the concept behind the unusual collection/retrospective CD "The 7th Song", "Traditionally, I have made the 7th song on all my CDs the mellifluous guitar ballad that serves the melody on a silver platter. In numerology, the number 7 is shrouded in mystique. In a record sequence, it has always felt like the sweet spot. These songs are more devotional in nature than technical. They are a reflection of one man's desire to expose a glimmer of the depth of his longing for spiritual communion." You'll find as you isten straight through the tracks comprising "The 7th Song", that each composition establishes a unique virtual space, which you are free to visit when you open your mind and allow yourself to enter.
