    After the success of PASSION & WARFARE, Steve Vai fed his creative hunger by collaborating with a lineup of exceptional musicians. Released on Relativity/Epic Records, SEX & RELIGION features master drummer Terry Bozzio, Shocka Zooloo bassist T.M. Stevens, and early vocal efforts from Strapping Young Lad's Devin Townsend. Bozzio and Stevens provide an impressive rhythmic foundation with Townsend's charismatic banshee-like dynamics complementing Vai's brilliant melodic contour. Despite creative differences during its creation that resulted in a short life for the all-star super group, SEX & RELIGION still offers entertaining songs about the human soul's desire for love and contentment in the face of despair.

  • Critic Reviews
    Musician (8/93, p.54) - "...the guitarist does indeed seem capable of summoning light without heat...a churning, propulsive, unpredictable kind of highbrow hardcore, with a crafty pop overlay and a liquid-cherry center of post-adolescent angst and rebellion...[vocalist Devon Townsend] makes Axl Rose sound like Johnny Mathis...
    Audio Magazine (11/93, p.105) - "...Vai's legendary axe dexterity is kept more within song contexts than expected, though `accessibility' doesn't diminish the soloing or intellect...."
