I quite like it. Simple but pretty detailed in a weird Vai way.

I'm just really hoping the album is very stripped down, no-nonsense guitar playing. Real Illusions was a little too 'out there' at times. Surely he must have 6 years of studio stuff that shoud be able to blow your mind? I think so. This album has the potential to be absolutely sensational.

Some studio/album updates would be nice, though.....

Hi All.

It appears as if an international distributor for Favored Nations has leaked the cover art. Although some of you have seen it, sharing it before Steve reveals it is against wishes. If you are able to take down any and all posts with the cover art & album title, please remove it immediately. The celebration will kick off soon, until then, we apologize and ask you to respect this sensitive material.

Best,
Andy

Steve is finished recording, mixing & is mastering the new album and.... It. Is. Awesome. The Favored Nations team, Vai.com, management, agencies- everyone is working very hard to make their deadlines. That's about all I can say... :) Steve will announce something very soon & Vai.com will have a presale for the album on the homepage with some very special items.

Best,
Andy
