I am a HUGE fan of this opportunity to peek deeper into the voluminous stash Mr. Vai must be nesting on. I really like the orchestration on As Above and So Below. Just reinforces my suspicion that we have much to look forward to in respect to Steve's explorations. Keep em' comin' boys!

wow - you found that quick! I just uploaded them!

Yes folks, two new tracks have been added:

"As Above" - was the original opening track to an early confirguration of The Ultra Zone.

"So Below" - was the original closing track to The Ultra Zone.

They are "bookends" of sorts.

More to come soon! :)

As always, the more I listen to them, the more I like them. Awesome stuff! 8)
But it's a good thing that they didn't end up on the album, they definitely don't fit the final version. (I would love to hear the early version though! ;) )
I know these are only demos, but did Niels Bye Nielsen have anything to do with them?
Oh, and thanks!

Ok I'm addicted. I've had them on repeat since this morning, they're so uplifting!
I was just thinking, they didn't fit the UZ, but they would be amazing at next year's metropole shows! ;)

Great Stuff!
While listening to "So Below" I was expecting to see an American Flag waving on my tv & then go to static when the song ended. lol

For those of you who don't know, some tv stations used to play the American national Anthem while showing the flag at the end of their broadcast day & then sign off. Your tv would just be static until the following morning.

I really like the songs:
'As Above' reminds me the splendor of 'Liberty',
'So Below' is a score-type theme with a nice orchestration,
'Burning Bush' a dark and mysterious song and
'Mag Jam'... a cool and fast improvisation

Awesome! 8)

Why should it be free?
Why do I have to pay $50,000 for a Lexus?
Shouldn't it be free?
Why did I have to pay for my house?

Really, they can charge if they want to, and they can charge whatever they want. If you want to spend the money, you do.
Mikey doesn't have to give you any reason for anything, as we all CHOOSE to be here. The money they make on the downloads is probably just enough to cover the costs of actually having the SERVICE available.

Let's just appreciate that this cool place exists, and that we have somewhere to meet some really awesome folk!

:D
