It is amazing how some simple chords can be break down into great arpeggios that create an amazing song. The second Blue Heartache - The Osborne Brothers - Fastest Grass Alive was Damage Control, which is more metal and heavy than the first song.
This song is pretty much like his solos in Dream Theater, heavy but still has deep feeling in it through beautiful tones. The downside is that John Petrucci lacks of stage action, but its okay, consider he has to concentrate full on his playing. Next is Steve Vai.
For me, Steve Vai is a somewhat progressive artist, because of his ability to play and produve extraordinary songs, just like John Petrucci. In addition, Steve Vai without a doubt is one of the best guitar players. He played a song from a very old doesn't mean bad album, Passion and Warfare, the song called The Audience Is Listening. Just a sneak peak at this song, Vai could create a sound like human's sound, I mean, when humans are talking and he really did that.
Last but not least is our blues-rock god, Joe Satriani. Personally I think Joe Satriani was not very dominant in the Manifestation - Divine Empire - Nostradamus session.
On the other hand, John Petrucci and Steve Vai were trying to beat each other in terms of technical skills and the musical tones. However, I terms of the show and overall concert, two thumbs up!
As usual, Steve Vai is the player that stand out the most. His interplay with Billy on The Audience is Listening is stunning, in which the two assist each other in playing their instruments. Billy's solo is also killer. Building the Church takes the studio version to new heights, with extended sections, better tone, and more emotion.
It seems like Steve Soulful Love - The Impressions - This Is My Country & The Young Mods Forgotten Story always the blend of the other two Damage Control - Satriani* / Vai* / Petrucci* - G3 Live In Tokyo.
Joe has become more musical than technical not in the least a bad thingand the other player in this case Petrucci is the technical wizard.
Steve is the perfect blend of flash and substance with the exception of Eric Johnson's appearances. Any fan of Dream Theater, Joe Satriani, and Steve Vai knows that their individual live albums are 2-CD affairs with extended solos and amazing technicality. So then why are we reduced to what could be mistaken for a sound check? Do yourself a favor, buy these guys' solo albums or DT albums for Petrucciand be amazed at full length album of virtuosity. Damage Control - Satriani* / Vai* / Petrucci* - G3 Live In Tokyo back to this only if you want the jam or Vai's set.
So what does this DVD delivers? As before, you can expect a Damage Control - Satriani* / Vai* / Petrucci* - G3 Live In Tokyo performance by Satriani, a great performance by Vai but oddly a so-so one by Petrucci.
