    it's a good disc, more emphasis on the overall songs than just bass solo's. this should be in recordings though.

    I don't like it much compared to show of hands.. like someone said .. this time it's more about the songs then crazy bass playing. Actually, I have trouble even listening to it. :(

    It depends in what do you want to hear. As been said, This album is more song oriented than "A show of hands", but it's great, too. One of the finest moments of the record to me is "Kaila speaks", in which Victor shows what can be done with a baby's voice: He plays an intro, let us hear his baby daughter Kaila's voice alone and then replays her with accompaniment. Presto! Kaila's babbling transforms in singing. Among other things, Victor plays the same voice pitches with his bass. This is the perfect example that remind us that real musicianship is not only on virtuosistic instrument playing. Victor rules! :)

    I heard a Steve Vai song where he does that, he mimics a child singing short phrases like "ya-o-gak" but with a tune, and then he plays it on guitar.
     
  7. I only like a few songs on it, like "Hip Bop". I really don't think it's worth the $$$.
