Dead & likes Rendang
I dig it. :yesway:
Better writing. His last one was really pretty good, and the two before that had some pretty great moments too. For the most part though, from Strange Beautiful Music through Wormhole Wizards, you've probably got about one album's worth of really great songs, and then a whole bunch of stuff a lot like this.Ah comme on.. what are you guys expecting?
Tell me a guitar player Instrumental album only where every new record is exciting like if its something never heard?
I really liked his last one and especially Wormhole Wizards
He did. And we got Chickenfoot from it. :ugh:This guy needs to get himself into a solid band. I love him and what he does, but he's a melody guy, and I think he needs some more solid riffs/grooves underneath his lead wizardry.
The single best thing about Chickenfoot was it gave Joe an outlet for the Led Zep side of his musical personality. I don't think it's at ALL a cooincidence that the number of songs of his based around simple blues rock riffs with blues-based melody lines with, like, one odd note for color dropped WAY off after he started working with Chickenfoot, and the quality of his solo material writing got (IMO) a lot, lot better.They *had* an actual rhythm section. What they didn't have was songs; Sammy is the only one who can write, and his well dried up long ago.
Yeah, that album ruled, hard, and Door Into Summer was forgettable compared to that tune. Though, I DID like Energy, although I think it functions a lot better as an album opener than a standalone track.For what it's worth, I'm keeping my expectations low like I did when he released Energy and A Door To Summer, since the albums they came from are both great. Hell, Thunder On High Mountain is one of the best songs he's written in years.
EDIT: Seriously, that riff is one of the best Satch has done in years.
He did. And we got Chickenfoot from it. :ugh:
Agreed, his chords sound amazing but nothing proactively bringing me into to listen to it again.
Not really feeling this one, almost like a Super Colossal leftover, but at least with better production. I do like the huge sounding chords on the outro.
