The Story
"Alien Love Secrets" is an all instrumental album of Steve Vai-isms, meaning guitar music as only Vai can play it. This EP/CD features moody, atmospheric textures, and plenty of tortured squeals, wah-wah riffage and other sonic goodies, held together by Vai's ultra-fluid technical ability. "Alien Love Secrets" features "Bad Horsie", which incorporates some of the riffs from the final scene in the movie "Crossroads", and "Ya-Yo Gakk", where Vai 'cuts heads' with his son.
