    Steve Vai is nothing if not a highly ambitious guitar virtuoso. ALIVE IN AN ULTRA WORLD is a unique live album in that it is wholly composed of special songs written specifically for (and dedicated to) 15 nations along THE ULTRA ZONE 2000 tour trail. Each song either employs traditional music elements of the subject country or pays homage to them through the lyrics. It is interesting to note that many of these songs came together during soundchecks in as little as 15 minutes. As Vai is well-versed in an eclectic range of music styles, the songs on this two-disc set are stylistically diverse. The tracks with vocals reflect the flavor of traditional folk anthems, and the instrumentals are rife with various scales, customary instrumentation, and of course, Vai's inimitable guitar technique.
