I have heard this CD several times now. It is by far the best rock n roll album I have ever heard in my life. Every song is kick a** in your face straight up rock n roll the way it should be played. If space aliens landed on Earth and asked what is music? Give them this CD and they will get the best lesson on Music. This is what you get when you combine great talent Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and the worlds greatest guitarist in the history of mankind bar none Joe Bonamassa.
I just bought this and I like it so far, though I have not listened to it all the way through yet. I am a longtime Deep Purple fan, a recent fan of Bonamassa and of course a huge fan of Jason Boham's dad's band. Hughes was far from my favorite Deep Purple singer but he's still got it. One of the things I didn't like about Hughes with Purple was his screaming, though so far I haven't heard too much of it on this album. I wouldn't call it the best rock album of all time but it definitely has a lot of potential.
I've listened to the CD all the way through once. About 1/4 of the way through I started "getting it" and it continued to grow on me. By the end I was really diggin it. I didn't know who the singer was and was surprised to learn that it was Glenn Hughes. He usually sings soulfully with too much emphasis on screaming for my tastes but sounds a lot like Dio on this album. Joe's guitar work is good bordering on great. I still haven't gotten used to hearing him play rock so I hear him kinda copying his blues stuff and then rocking it up but he is always good. I'm gonna listen to it again and that should give me a good idea where I stand.
Best album of all time? No but it is a great debut album from a "supergroup"
