Released 20 years ago, this album is a testament to the extraordinary creative talent and technical ability of this guitar master. This release has all the hallmarks of a classic solo work, with a great deal of passion, attention, focus and some excellent improvisation apparent throughout the album.

'Alien Water Kiss', 'Ballerina 12/24', 'Love Secrets' and, to a lesser extent 'The Riddle', showcase the more experimental side of the release while delivering an astonishing audio excursion into the awesome power and range of the instrument. 'Sisters' is a beautiful accoustic number and 'For the Love Of God' conveys a skill and emotion that has to be heard to be believed. The majority of the other tracks are more steeped in Rock / Hard Rock style, but at no stage do they come across as tired or cliched. Each track holding the fingerprint of Vai's creative flair and originality.

An epic journey into the mind of one of the most gifted guitar players at arguably his creative peak, this release is highly recommended for admirers of the intimacy offered by many solo musicians and lovers of great guitar music alike.
