The criticisms of Chickenfoot's self-titled debut (including shallow, half-baked lyrics and a lack of depth) cannot be said of Chickenfoot III. Better songwriting, a good deal more depth both musically and sonically, plenty of late-1960s/early-1970s classic rock vibe, and slicker production make for one hell of an album, and this sophomore effort marks a definite and big step forward.

The highlights: Last Temptation, the opener, is hard, bluesy, and chunky, with a good dose of attitude and a guitar solo that comes out of nowhere. Satriani must have been thinking Hendrix when he wrote the music for Up Next, a dark, thumping song with one hell of a guitar solo. Lighten Up is even darker, and might be seen as Chickenfoot plus Deep Purple; it has a killer hook and a killer vibe. This is a big damn song with a lot going on. Big Foot, on the other hand, is a straight-up, no-BS driving tune with some funny lyrics. Dubai Blues: Sweet groove with a sweet, bluesy, dirty hook and excellent back-and-forth between the vocals and Satriani, who provides a couple of solos that are among his best. There are three songs that tilt toward the lighter side; Different Devil, Come Closer (a great, soulful track), and Something Gone Wrong show Chickenfoot's deeper side. The album closes by kicking things back up, with a hidden track called No Change -- push past the political lyrics, and you'll find a killer song with a killer vibe that showcases everyone in the band giving 110%. And that's the essence of Chickenfoot III: Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Mike Anthony, and Chad Smith all have had amazing careers full of amazing moments. Here, the band sounds as tight as any other band in peak form. Chickenfoot III will stand as one of the best things any of them has ever done.

I will say it again: This is one hell of an album.

Let's say up front that I never bought into the whole David vs. Sammy thing. I never called Van Halen "Van Hagar" when Sammy was in the band. While I loved all of the early Van Halen albums (still do), I was just as crazy about the Van Halen albums with Sammy up front.

What's astonishing is just how FRIGGIN' GOOD Sammy still is after all these years. The guy hasn't lost a step. He is incredible on this album.

I think it was a great choice sticking with Michael Anthony, and an even better choice bringing on Joe Satriani. (You may or may not recall how David Lee Roth picked up Steve Vai when he went solo. Probably the only real contender on the planet to set up against Eddie Van Halen. Well, Joe Satriani was Steve Vai's instructor. Satriani might be the third worthy candidate to roll with these rockers.)

The way the band comes together on this album is some kind of magnificent. They play together as if they were made for each other. Everything is TIGHT and STRONG. The riffs are awesome, the guitar tone exquisite, the bass and drums driving (in the way VH fans will definitely appreciate).

Altogether -- great album. Great songs. And an amazingly fluid and flawless super-concoction of killer talent.

Great stuff.

Great, great stuff.

The subject matter on many of these songs is a bit darker/serious and more complex than their first release but the hook and groove on most of the tracks curls the lip and makes the head nod. The guys really visit their roots and it shows in many of the riffs Joe has provided. Backup vocals with Michael seem to be focal point throughout as well which is fine by me. Production is slick and polished. Tracks that shine are "3 1/2 letters" (spoken word which jumps off the beaten path a bit but really connects Sammy's voice has held up remarkably well for all the years of belting it but it does seem a bit strained a time or two. Joe is Joe, bow down and grovel. "Dubai Blues" is straight up taught by pros, listen and learn. "BigFoot" in non-complicated fun. "Up Next" awesome hook and Joe's solo brings back a lot of good memories and makes me smile. Know that every track isn't a headbanger's wet dream, the "Foot" show a mature tempo on a lot of the tracks. If you are expecting something new and completely different pick it up someday but if you are a fan of Sammy and boys that make up the "Foot" this album will not disappoint.

I notice there seems to still be this competition with some VH fans that won't die and never will so I thought I would put my two cents worth in here.I love the new Van Halen record ADKOT but that does not mean I am suppose to dislike this record like some people have decided, they are both great! I do favor the new VH more but that's not to say this is not an excellent record IT IS! I was and still am a fan of VH with DLR and Hagar and now Chickenfoot as well it's nice to have this much good RnR these days we should all feel blessed we do! By the way for young ones still learning Sammys music check out his fantastic solo record Standing Hampton.

Chickenfoot's self-titled debut, despite deserving a full five-star review, seemed, in spots, to be the sound of four great musicians still getting acquainted with one another, not always sounding greater than the sum of its parts. The same cannot be said of CHICKENFOOT III, on which the band sounds like a hard rock/metal version of the Allman Brothers Band or the Outlaws- incredibly raw and honest, yet melodic and featuring incredible degrees of light and shade, especially in Sammy Hagar's voice and in the musical arrangements. There's less of the party-hearty attitude and a darker, more reflective tone in both the music AND the lyrics, which is in a way reminiscent of some of Hagar's older solo albums, such as STREET MACHINE and THREE LOCK BOX. This could be due to the bandmembers' increased political awareness, as well as tough times in the United States and around the world. Even the one real party song on this CD, "Big Foot", has darker under- and overtones than anything on the first album. The fact that the members of Chickenfoot support efforts to free Americans jailed abroad, as well as Hagar's empathy for military personnel returning from the Middle East, the unemployed and the homeless, and his advocacy of the right of police to use deadly force to rescue kidnap victims from their abductors, make this CD an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.
