    Joe is back with a tidal WAVE of SUPER novel songs

    Posted

    The thing I love most about Joe is that he knows the audience he writes for; guitar players in search of interesting, crafty and moving songs - Where only after years of practicing, teaching, touring, recording and living/breathing guitar can one produce music this fresh and satisfying. For those us who constantly strive to join his league, this is a GEM! For this CD, I avoided hearing any of the individual digital releases early, and instead opted to BUY the CD on release date and listen to it "old school" style, that is from beginning to end with no distractions. I was not disappointed. $13 bucks is a STEAL for the musical enjoyment this gave me in just the first listen, not to mention the lifetime of enjoyment still ahead. Unlike his latest offerings this new release is a stand-out, with songs reminiscent of Not of This Earth, and Surfing. I'm not sure what Joe's been up to these past few years or what kind of headspace he's been in, but the man's had some time to WRITE! This is his most creative writing in decades. With the exception of Track 7, "San Francisco Blue", which sounds like a leftover from "Unstoppable Momentum", this album actually flows like and most resembles CRYSTAL PLANET. And that's a compliment of the highest degree! In this age where Rock is dead # ask your typical high-schooler what he listens to and the top answer is "Kanye West" and similar Rap#, we, more than ever need to support the true musical artists out there who OWN their instruments. Go out and BUY. Show Joe some love. I guarantee he'll give it right back...Tenfold!

    Old man Joe has done it! (Joe" The Gentleman" Rock Guitar Star)How many times can you solo guitar album and make it fresh and new? There are some tracks that sound truly amazing. Like the first time you cranked up a sound system. As a commercial sound installer, I use JOE's tracks when I fire up a sound system for testing. Always clean and full range/Dynamic. My favorites on this one are 1,3,7,8,9,10,and 14. The rest are Bonus!

    I have been a fan of Joe since the beginning of his shredding career in 87. Most of his CDs have been instrumental and or singing by him,hes had a variety of music so this new CD is a variety of different music but no vocals,blues,rock, shredding,a little jazz etc.I would say this is by far one of his best efforts and you won't be disappointed if you are a listener or play guitar,five star rating!

    He is EASILY the best of the shredders from the late 80's on. He actually writes intros, verses, and choruses, as opposed to just playing exotic scales at hyper-speeds over weird chord changes and calling it a song. Not his best effort, but good.

    A musically diverse release from guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani. I thought his last album was okay but this one I thoroughly enjoyed all the songs. I would highly recommend it if you're a fan of Satriani's or enjoy guitar rock instrumental music.

    I have been listening to Joe since 1987 and I can truly say that this is my new favorite. Such a virtuoso. He gets better and better as the years go by. There is a little something for anyone that loves instrumental rock.

    As I get older, I barely listen to a whole CD many times like I used to. But I like this one and am listening frequently. I think this album has a similar vibe to Crystal Planet which is one of my favorites.

    just when you thought that Joe has recorded his best stuff long ago he comes out with a disc that is just so well written and executed that you can't help but appreciate his musical maturity
