I was actually expecting that. The lotus blossom visible from the first few squares of the album cover remind me of the song 'lotus feet', and I imagine an ancient japanese type picture, maybe of a geisha woman at the center of the flying lotus blossom? Only time will tell though. :wink:

Every 5 sec?
Okay, You may be right, but I'm hungry for more information about this album.

Vai wrote: SV Comment (about the track 'K'm pee du wee'):

This song made it to the record because for me it had that little special something. Maybe because it’s Lydian mode and I respond to that mode more than any others. I focused on every single note in this song and feel that there is not a gratuitous note in the entire piece. I hear the lyrics when I listen to this even though it’s an instrumental
I feel exactly the same way about the lydian mode, it has a really magical quality to it. I'm looking forward to this piece alot! :)

So is this special CD on the tour going to be available for all of us
attendees of the show to buy, or just the Premium Package ticket holders? I'm going to the show in St. Louis in April, but holy crap
I gotta buy the CD when it comes out in February. I guess I'll just
have to buy the album again at the show :D

If I remember correctly Mikey said the CD will available at the merch stall to everyone. The Tour CD is not the complete studio album. This is what it says in the Evo info page about the special CD...

"An audio CD exclusive to the tour - containing a commentary by Steve Vai on each track of “Real Illusions : Reflections” along with audio snippets, plus a bonus track that does not appear on the album."

Check this thread for all Evo package info...
