Steve Vai: Where The Wild Things Are [DVD]

Sound — 10
Great overall band level. He harmonizes so well with the violins and other guitars. The only bad point is the whole DVD is in the starting two songs his volume seemed to be turned down but that was soon fixed. The band mix was spot on there was no cloudyness or over compression in the sound, it just sounded raw and beautiful.

Great Quality. Well worth all the hours practice. He realy has a perfict setup, when you take in all the things happening at once you realy appreciate all his talent. Whether it is just the simple things like pushing down on a stomp box at the right time that you don't get that sudden fuzz or shreading in an complicated key with a complicated timeing he can just do it all.

This DVD rocks. I brought it trying to see if I liked Steve Vai... I do. He has now convinced me to buy a Digitech Whammy pedal because of the way he uses it. The new band members are also great, the use of violins realy adds to the atmosphere. Any real Steve Vai fan needs this DVD.
