First single "Oh yeah," I bet I can guess who came up with that title. :lol: Meh well I'm still interested to hear the rhythm section and how it comes out. Maybe they'll release an instrumental version.

These have been out for a while I didnt see them here though. Hagars voice is amazing, but I really wish they would have put Michael Anthony's voice higher in the mix. Im not a big Satrinani fan so the music isnt my favorite. Still rocks harder than 99.9% of stuff on the radio though.

I finally got a chance to listen to the two songs and they were .... ok. :? Didn't knock my socks off like I was expecting considering the people involved in this project, but I'll still give it a shot when it's released ... because of the people involved in the project. :wink:

I agree, nowhere near Zeppelin (but I knew that wouldn't happen anyways). It was alright, but I gave up halfway through Soap on a Rope. Honestly, it got dull to me. Not really exciting, but alright I guess. :|

Pretty much exactly what I expected. Sounds cool. No real edge to it though. The music doesn't exactly breathe.

I was impressed by Satch's tone. Sounds fairly unprocessed (un-overly processed?). I was expecting to hear what sounded like a solo artist thrown on top of 3 other guys. It sounds like a band. Looking forward to hearing more.

I agree, Dan. Satch sounded nothing like I expected. *r*

Interestingly, there's a new interview out there in which Hagar claims Satch is the most talented guitarist he's ever played with. :shock: Take that, Eddie!! :lol:

That's no suprise to me really. Hagar can play pretty well himself, and knew Ed personally so he's not caught up in the Eddiemania like the rest of the world. Not taking away from EVH at all, because at his best, he's absolutely phenominal - but he's still not Joe Satriani.

Like he would say Ed's better than Satch. Mustaine says that everytime Megadeth gets a new guitar player.
I can see wheres hes coming from on a perspective of being able to play anything but as far as rock Satch cant touch Ed.

It really does come down to opinion...but when it comes to rock or anything else related to six strings and a peice of wood, Satch is way more accomplished than Ed. Eddie may have innovated alot of the techniques Satch uses, and Satch owes him a debt that I'm sure Satch would be the first to admit to, but theres a such thing as taking what an influence does, and making it better...


But anyway, now that the album is out and the dust has settled, what does everybody think?

It's pretty much what I expected, generic rock :| . I don't really mean that in a bad way, it's better than 90% of modern bands calling themselves rock, and the highlights to be honest, is anytime Satch gets a solo, and Chad Smiths drumming is excellent throughout the whole thing.

There's a few highlights, I actually like the more ballady ones, Future in The Past is good, and Learning to Fall is nice.
Satch's guitar stuff on Turnin' Left is typical blazing Satch.

All in all, it's pretty solid, but nothing to knock me off my chair.

I really enjoy it overall. I think Sammy's lyrics are the weakest link -- in fact, the lyrics are just plain lame on a couple songs -- but the contributions of the rest of the band are really good. I think some of the songs sound like what the next Van Halen CD should sound like if they ever make another one ... nice to hear Michael on backing vocals again.

I also agree that some of the ballad-type songs are the best ones on the CD. I also agree Satch's work on "Turning Left" is phenomenal.

I finally got it about a month ago and gave it some serious spins and it really grew on me to the point that I played it so much that I can't listen to it again for awhile. :lol: My first reaction was it sounded like just another Sammy solo album but that changed after a few spins. I like it alot for what it is, which is 4 guys having alot of fun and it shows.

Satriani plays in the pocket and doesn't override anybody but when it comes time to solo he shows why he is so highly regarded in guitar circles even though he is playing for the song. There are several nods to his solo albums in parts spread throughout the songs and there are a few parts where he totally mimics Eddie and I don't mind that (I'm talking about some ripping parts, not the start of "Running Out" which was almost a total rip off of the start of "Finish What Ya Started"). I really dig "Down The Drain" and "Future In The Past". I can't recall which song it was but one starts out as a big nod/swipe at a certain Led Zep song. But bottom line is I really enjoyed the album. No it's not gonna rival Led Zep like Sammy said way back, but a good job by all.

Absolutely. I love some of the solos on there.
