Is this the second album in the real illusions. The art work is similar

Vai mentioned at a G3 meet and greet recently that he hoped this would be part of the trilogy - sure looks like it is!

I've ordered my platinum package... hopefully it does get held up in customs because of the seeds :|

I'm pretty sure the artwork was made by the same artist, Andrea Cobb. Love it immensely. :)

It does look like the second installment of the Real Illusions trilogy especially when one of the tracks is called 'John the Revelator'!

There are other options. :roll:

You also get the set of picks as well. It's an additional $25 but if you broke out the extra items and sold them individually on ebay I'm guessing you could get your money back. That tells me there is value there besides the jolt of ecstacy I get adding more vainyl to the collection. :wink:
