Quoting from an interview with Mark Shelton regarding the solo: "the solo on “Voyager's” “Tree Of Life” is a one shot solo that I just happened to score on the first time I played it in the studio. I went in to the studio just to lay a scratch track down for the song so that the drummer would know where the solo was in the song and I laid it down in one take. I had always planned on going back and doing the solo again later but nobody would let me touch the solo saying that it was perfect the way it was. So that one off solo is what stayed on the final recording."
Blew me away! At about 2:30 in I was awestruck!
The only thing I dont like about the song is the solo.
It sounds confused and doesnt really go anywhere!
True alot of Manilla Road's solo's doesnt really go anywhere but are still awesome! But this one doesnt do it for me
