Hello all! Please help this noob - what does the "RS" on the back of the "robot" on the back cover of The Ultra Zone cd stand for? Robot Steve??? Anyways, here's another poser for you all - got any Vai sings/tunes that you just don't like? As a starter I'm not crazy about Voodoo Acid...........

I can't help you with the "RS", but as far as songs go, I think it's the 1st song on"The Ultra Zone", I can't remember the title(I think it's Blood and Tears) but it has some chick rattling something off in some language that's not English through out the song. Like arabic or maybe Indian(India). It drives me insane and totally ruins the song for me. I'm going nuts just thinking about it. If that wench wasn't singing that crap on that track I'd be able to like it, but I have to skip it everytime I put that album in. I just hate that song because of that !!!! :evil:

Really? There's not a single song which makes you even slightly think "Well, this isn't quite my kinda thing...." or "This bit just doesn't do it for me"?? I mean, Steve's music is SOOO varied. There's almost mathematically GOT to be some bits that even the most ardent fan might not appreciate all the time, surely? If not, well fair enough bro', I ain't knockin' ya! IMHO, I've found the Ultra Zone album a bit patchier than other albums. Just an opinion, and that's why we're here, right? On a more positive note, I've found Real Illusions to be much more "my kinda thing" :guitar

That's why Steve's music is so special to me; it goes straight to my heart. I love every song and pray for more great stuff to come :)

So we all have to suggest you some Steve's songs that we don't like?
It's kinda strange, huh?!

And it'd be quite difficult too for me to suggest something I don't like from Steve... :roll: I even wonder if it exists 8)
