I agree with BBB, I can't believe 4 years have passed from when it was released. Feelin kinda nostalgic now..

Anyways, K'm-Pee-Du-Wee and building the church, they are amazing tracks

Under it all - best Vai song ever.
It's so layered. Touches so many emotions. So creative and diverse.

Steve - how about a new record? We miss you :(

Been counting the votes so fare

4 votes - Under It All
4 votes - K'm-Pee-Du-Wee
3 votes - Freak Show Excess
2 votes - Building The Church
2 votes - Dying For Your Love
1 vote - I'm Your Secrets
1 vote - Glorious

Not so many voters, so we need some more votes here!

So fare a tie between a complex song with vocals and a "simple" instrumental song.
I guess that says Vai fans just love it all :D

Lotus Feet, though I still believe it doesn't really fit on the album.

When I first heard Lotus Feet, which for those who can remember was exposed to the world way before Real Illusions was eventually released, I thought it was amazing. One thing I wished for the new album though was a completely new studio produced version of Lotus Feet. I had a vision of what it could have been as a studio cut, the silky strings with a hint of synth sparkle and pads here and there, and I have to say I was a little let down to find that it had been cut from The Aching Hunger concerts, great though it was.

Roll on RI2...only another four years to wait by my estimation! ;)

Under it all, because under it all there's so much more, then dying for your love for the originality then freak show excess for the ethnicity(?) and then definitely midway creatures for the jellyesque soli and amazing tapping sequence but then I like the modernity of glorious and...ok here it goes:

1 under it all (those gorgeous 7 strings chords)


2 glorious
3 dying for your love
4 freak show excess
5 building the church

:peace
