Re: "Live In Minneapolis: Where The WIld Things Are" DVD REVIEWS

Steve, I picked up the new dvd at the mall's hmv last weekend, it's a blast and totally entertaining. Thanks for working so hard on this; by far the best dvd package you've put out (and I think I have them all) - excellent production, great sound, tight band, great performances and a wonderful selec...

fine album not wholly successful nor the greatest thing he has did IMO, but fun and entertaining...steve realizing a dream of his to get an orchestra to play his music, and the new colors that can bring...for disc one, the murder has some blistering fretwork...but the highlight of this disc was 'the...

I think P&W is one of the greatest instrumental rock albums ever. Hell, just based on the orchestration alone...and it's so well executed. It's amazing....IMO, it took instrumental music to another level in that 'genre'.

Yeah, I heard this...it was on the April 17th broadcast. Stern read a message on air that he received from Vai himself, and played a bit of Fuck Yourself, adding how it has a great guitar solo.

to me, "Prince" is a mediocre talent and a horrible guitarist. i saw the performance on SNL a few wks back and it was nothing to get excited about whatsoever, the music was so derivative, the lyrics were trite and insipid and his playing is the same ol' cliche unthinking pentatonic drivel we've all ...
