    Even at a well-established level and decades into his craft, Vai takes some surprising risks on The Story of Light, and the album almost always benefits from them.

    You just need to listen and enjoy without reading too much into the material. That is easy to do here.

    The Story of Light is business as usual for Vai, a man who fights to avoid repeating himself and always tries to find new territory on an instrument that he has described as being "infinite" in its creative potential.

    What The Story of Light shows in the end is that for every daring composition he gets right, there will be a few that are either too safe or not as well thought out.
