5.0 out of 5 stars Either I'm having a mid life crisis or this really is a good album!!, 9 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Chickenfoot (Audio CD)
I used to be a big rock fan back around Satriani's surfing with the alien. I saw him live around that time and although he was technically good- he needed a proper band to make it work. I always liked Sammy Hagar too, as i thought the VH albums he was part of were nearly up there with the Dave lee Roth stuff.
Anyway, for whatever reason I rediscoverd a few older rock albums and decided i'd look at what was happening now and sure enough it's taken nearly 20 years for him to realise, but Satriani has a proper band to work with. It really works, Satch is confined to riffing for most of the songs (sneaking the odd ridiculous modal lick in whenever he can!) but that just makes the solos stand out more for me, Turning left particularly is a real standout track with a fantastic 'verge of noise and chaos' solo.

Of course what i didn't even realise back in the day is that vocals and solos would be nothing without a rock solid rhythm section, and with Michael Anthony and Chad Smith you've got that in spades.

So if you like Van Halen, Satch or want to hear American cheese rock played by the most experienced, technical and talented group - this album is for you.
