Triumph gives me a cozy feeling :).
It's as if I was listening to a Vai song..

Personally, I find this solo to be one of Steve's best.
Now I finally know what you're talking about! Steve makes some really interesting, out-there note choices on this solo. I love that first, sustained note leading into that section. It's like, "Steve's here now." :D Fantastic song too, regardless of the solo.

I'm looking forward to the new Dev.

Its still hard to imagine that some Vai fans don't like Sex and Religion. It has to be one of the coolest records ever made. He DESTROYS the guitar every time he lays a finger on it (and that's a good thing).

Some of those riffs man, whao....I wish I had come up with them.

Woah! Just got this album. It's amazing! Dev delivers again in spades. And Steve's solo is otherworldly - but it just icing on an already moist delicious cake.

If you haven't got this album yet go out and get it!

Synchestra

I got the european CD+DVD version a few days ago. I tell you it's a beautiful record... beautiful. It's very subtle, dense, sometimes extremely heavy and overall different from the past records Devin worked on. And even though RI is my favorite project ever, I enjoy SAR from head to toe. I love Devin's singing, he has such a wide range of tonal capabilities - besides writing exceptionally great music.
Steve's solo on Triumph is "unconjurable by written or unwritten language". It sounds like he used FLO and his Pandora like he did with Feathers, but he might well have used the G-Force or the DSP4000 all the same. And although you can hear it's a totally Vai solo, it's still so fresh and original and unexpected. It's incredible to think that he recorded that while on tour - with all the things that can prevent you to focus on the creative moment (I think Steve's the one who has to care for most things while on tour, right?). Congratulations, Steve.

PS: Mikey, I see why you got so surprised by that phrase towards the end of the solo. I too was. :)

Exactly what I was thinking! That's what's really amazing to me.

When I listened it for the first time I had the same feeling, but then -after lots & lots of listenings- I really love its atmosphere :wink:

EDIT:
About Triumph collaboration... well I think the editing-post production work is awesome, everything sounds clear and the song is like a little painting to me, wiht different sets changing constantly. I love the two guys together, they can build insane stuff up :P

I feel exactly the same way about Triumph. I love the way the distorted guitars seem to build a huge wave of sound, with the melodic vocal work soaring above triumphantly. It's so refreshing to hear bands producing music to this standard, and pushing the boundaries of guitar production. :)

I love Synchestra, and I recommend it to anyone and everyone! An album you need in your collection. A modern classic.
